Agenzija Zghazagh celebrates Intercultural Week with a special edition of Roots and Routes.

On the 21st May, the world marks the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, aiming to encourage reflection on the world’s cultural richness and of the essential role of intercultural dialogue for achieving peace and sustainable development. Agenzija Zghazagh joined the celebrations through a special edition of Roots and Routes. A new episode was launched daily during intercultural week celebrated between the 17th and the 23rd May.

Roots & Routes – Intercultural week aimed to establish and enhance connections with young foreigners living in Malta while encouraging young people living in Malta to engage with narratives of young migrants thereby encouraging a broad understanding of identity, nationality, migration and global mobility. This podast cultivates a platform which supports an increased openness to migration and which promote solutions to issues arising from integration.

We speak with young people who have not only come from different countries to make Malta their home, but also contribute in different ways to our society.

We speak with those who have come to Malta as part of the growing job market, and with others who have followed their parents – they recount what was important in their journey of integrating in the local school community.

Most of these young people have come from very different environments, so they also speak of how they have adapted to the life on a small island.

What have they found in Malta?

In what ways is Malta their home?

How have they adapted to life in Malta?

How do they keep their links to their homeland?
