INTERCULTURAL EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM AND PL2S CENTER FOR DEVELOPING TOLERANCE OF KRASNOYARSK REGION CITIZENS

Siberian Federal University (RUSSIAN FEDERATION)
Krasnoyarsk region has traditionally been considered one of the most peaceful regions of Russia in the context of interethnic conflicts. It is proved by the official data, e.g. the rating of interethnic tension in the regions of Russia conducted by the Center studying interethnic conflicts and the federal information agency "Club of Regions" [1] . According to the results of the expert survey of the regional and federal level Krasnoyarsk region was in a group with a very low interethnic tension unlike Moscow, Tatarstan, Dagestan belonging to a group with the high level of tension and political exploitation of ethnic issues. The stability and low level of conflict is affected by the number of geographical factors. Krasnoyarsk region is a large territory with low population density, with specific demographic and migration processes: reduction of natural population growth from 2014 to 2015 by 2.2% [2].

Despite the stability the issue of interethnic relations is topical. Large financial and industrial groups are represented there, and a large number of migrant workers is needed. 117 thousand of migrants arrived to Krasnoyarsk region in 2015, most of them from Central Asia (42% of the total number of migrants from CIS member countries: Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan) and the Caucasus. 137 nationalities live in Krasnoyarsk region, it is 10.5% of the population (Census results). One of the main problems is to regulate migrant flows and the scope of their employment.

Personalized Lifelong Learning Services (PL2S) center was established on the basis of Intercultural Educational Platform of Siberian Federal University (IEP SibFU) within the TEMPUS project «ALLMEET». The program of PL2S center includes the following activity: adaptive trainings, educational seminars, opinion polls, organization of diagnostics of personal and professional resources by means of Validation of Prior Learning (VPL) and ePortfolio; creating a platform for the youth volunteer students, holding different kinds of practical sessions of IEP SibFU students at the Center [3].

Another possibility of increasing the level of tolerance of the population of Krasnoyarsk region, the level of social adaptation and integration of migrants is the interactive website of the IEP of SibFU. It contains a variety of resources on intercultural interaction. The project target groups are students, teachers, pupils, municipal and state employees, and workers. The basic principles of IEP SibFU are openness, dialogue, interactivity, and humanity. IEP SibFU contains 5 interactive spaces: an interactive website, electronic service portfolio, education sector, scientific sector, and coordination center.

Social adaptation is a complex process; it is possible to perform only in terms of individual approach to every migrant integrating the resources of government, business and education.
