In 4 meetings, taking place each time in one of the above location,
we worked on:

• Symbols, religion and history (-ies).
o From the 1st encounter we worked on our proper names and their origins (individual identity)
o into the 2nd encounter working on our families belonging (collective identities),
o in the 3rd meeting we developed each a personal individual symbols, as elements of a language that we could share
o to compose with a new configuration of a groups identities, by creating unity flag, in the 4th meeting, to say about living together beyond borders
