Migration: man can migrate, peoples can migrate. Thoughts can migrate, songs can migrate. Man has been migrating all the time, his thoughts, his inventions, his technology, his languages still are. Migrations leave traces back: marks in our languages, in our cultures, in music, even on the surface of earth.
The school families from different countries in Europe are going to set out and look for the traces of the migrations of our fellow creatures in the past and in the present time. Grouped in national and international work teams we are going to study and document the migration of knowledge, of words and languages, of migration songs and routes in Europe. Of course we are also going to focus on the present migration of people, as an important phenomenon of our age.
We are going to develope the various themes in international teacher teams and then focus on those themes with national and international student groups, thus evaluating and improving the working method. The result of such a team work is going to be the production of teaching materials which can be dealt with in the various schools in various ways.
Thanks to these activities, students and tutors from different European countries will be able to face their own and the others' cultures, ways of life and ways of thinking. During the working process they must express their point of view and maybe revise it, if it is reasonable to do so.
The 11000-year-old archaeological site Goebekli Tepe, in Eastern Anatolia, will be the starting point of our observation. Starting from there we will follow the migration of our forefathers, of our languages as well as of our Mathematics and we will be able to draw comparisons with the Middle Ages and the modern globalized world we live in.
