About the project

“Change Places, Change Lives” is a training course designed to explain and develop deeper understanding about migration in nowadays world.

The last years has shown the world how big the phenomena actually is and that there’s a big lack of knowledge among youth workers. Migration is a crucial interest to young people whether they come from countries affected by in-migration or those suffering the consequences of emigration. Knowledge of migration processes, the causes and consequences of migration and rights of young migrants are relevant to young people’s needs particularly if they are likely to become migrants or participants of mobility schemes or if their home communities are affected by migration. Competences in addressing migration in youth work are essential for building community cohesion in those countries.

TC is designed to confront the challenges and opportunities related to migration in Europe. By using different non-formal methods, causes and effects of migration will be analyzed. All aspects will be supported by the latest findings and developments around migration, pointing to various facets of migration: the main roads, the highways of migration, both in geographical terms and concepts, causes and effects of brain drain, labor migration, study and experience, migration driven by poverty and infringement of fundamental and social rights.
