The first “new” issue opens with Rotterdam (Netherlands) whose inhabitants coming from abroad represent more than 70 % of the total population. This is both a challenge and an opportunity to experience new approaches. In Rotterdam this rich diversity of the population is quite obvious in its architecture, the building of the public spaces combining modernity – with numerous skyscrapers and traditional buildings – symbolised by the statue of Erasmus, one of the most famous European humanist who gave his name to the most popular European programme- 3 million students could travel and have a first European experience between 1987 and 2017. Since 2014 all learners of all ages (from 7 to 77 years old) are concerned by the Erasmus + programme. In Paris the population is composed of people coming from other cities or regions (internal migration) or from foreign countries (external migration). In early and last settlements, French people usually gathered according to the neighbourhood of their train station arrival (Britons at the Gare Montparnasse for instance) or according to their ethnic communities – many Chinese people live in the XIIIth district of Paris or Indian people around the Gare du Nord. Each time the newsletter is co-written between a representative of Iriv (Paris, France) and a European colleague from another European City suggesting an innovative approach to enhance diversity in the city, whatever the audience addressed, with a reference to a project they are involved in. This new issue first tackles the issue of diversity in Rotterdam with the kind collaboration of our Dutch colleague from the Willem De Kooning Academie with whom the iriv is partner in the GRIT project- Growing in uRban educatIon and diversity –an Erasmus + project, led by the Karel de Grote University, Antwerp, in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Poland and Portugal (2018-2020)
