*) to raise awareness and empathy about the current migration situation in Europe;
*) to gain practical skills of making comics and using comics as facilitation and learning tool in intercultural education;
*) to create comics that could be used as learning material on intercultural dialogue and to raise awareness of immigration issues in Europe.
