Changing Society

New Ways of Inclusion

According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) there are currently 56 million migrants in Europe and this number is increasing. There are different triggers and causes, push and pull factors for migration which affects everyday life of all Europeans. There is forced migration and voluntary migration, different reasons and consequences of migration which have led to new migration routes some years ago. Depending on the context, migration can be considered as an opportunity, seeing its benefits like addressing labor shortages or rejuvenating aging societies, but it is also seen as a problem, often connected with raising xenophobia and discrimination against immigrants. All Europe is affected by migration, and especially young people, who are one of the most mobile groups and the ones who determine how the future Europe will look like. Therefore, it is important that people working with youngsters would be aware of the reasons and consequences of migration and be able to support both young emigrants and immigrants.

Through the project we are seeking to address the following issues:

  • The topic of EU citizenship and the fundamental values of the EU, respect for diversity, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, freedom, tolerance and human rights, focusing on seeking solutions for integration of refugees and migrants in EU society.

  • Our main goal is to inform and raise awareness among young people and youth workers about the needs of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers to encourage their integration into European society.

Project objectives:

  • to raise youth awareness about migration,

  • to explore EU migration policy in general,

  • to stimulate non-formal learning and leadership skills,

  • to increase awareness of young people about migration,

  • to stimulate the idea of social integration and peace building,

  • to encourage young people and youth workers to be actively involved in inclusion and social life,

  • to share and present migration challenges, experience and best practices of each country,

  • to promote tolerance, solidarity and inter-cultural exchange between countries,

  • to give information about Erasmus+ projects and motivate future cooperation among participating organizations.
