PROJECT DESCRIPTION

During 6 days, October 2017, in Cagliari, Italy, we will analyze the current challenges connected with the migrant crisis in Europe, understanding and recognizing the reasons of this phenomenon, then gradually discover what can we do today to work with young migrants and their new communities in a sustainable way, sharing experience and ideas, and underlining methods and techniques to raise the level of awareness in European countries relating possibilities to build a more inclusive society. The sustainable inclusion of young migrants will be taken as a broad term, comprising the integration in the local labour market, their linguistic, civic and educational integration, the housing and health challenges which they face, the active interaction between them and the natives and how can we fight against stereotypes and myths that natives have shaped towards immigrants in the host communities.

The main aim of the seminar is to share best practices, increase competences and find paths for youth workers in EU to propose better options to facilitate inclusion of young migrants, working at the same time on more projects concentrating on anti-discrimination themes. During the project, we will touch basic concepts such as the reasons and factors that exclusion, diffidence or fear towards migrants, or active civil position against passive one, and we’ll get deeper in topics such as the concept of migration (both regular and irregular) and asylum in EU, the different types of migration depending on the different reasons of migration, labour migration schemes, circular migration, the impact of migration on the immigrants and the host societies, the current anti-immigrant stance in Europe, the concepts of asylum seeker and refugee, how national and EU institutions deal with migration challenges, and, finally, the action of youth NGOs in the field, how they can cooperate with local and European institutions and the building of new youth initiatives, ideas and projects on the field.
