The aim of the project is to elaborate a new approach to the integration of refugees at the local level and to foster a greater respect towards refugees, starting from young individuals and through their cultural and local integration, without forgetting the awareness -raising among the local population.
The specific objectives of the project
- Identify, develop, test and evaluate an
innovative approach towards integration including an active interaction between
refugees and the local population in the host communities: build together a
common project at the urban district level;
- Encourage a stronger active
participation of young refugees in the cultural life of the host community.
Tighten contacts between refugees and non-refugees.
- Develop the young refugees’ capacity to
communicate with the local community and become part of it. Facilitate the
study of the refugee issue through a cultural dialogue at the local level as
well as inter-cultural workshops regrouping refugees and non refugees;
- Change mentalities and the opinion of
civil society towards refugees, in particular among young people, by using new
instruments of awareness-raising;
- Stimulate a greater awareness in the
medias and schools and inside the local community as regards refugees;
- Identify and promote good practices
insisting on the local integration of refugees in Europe.
