Through meaningful life experiences, Celei creates the environment necessary to reconsider our cultural beliefs and to develop community bonds and critical thinking.

By the end of this online course students will not only have had the opportunity to listen to the voices of migrants and migration specialists from Red Cross to Mains Solidaires, students will have developed a broader perspective of this world wide crisis.
