Background:

We are currently living in a global era marked by intense migratory flows across Europe, which are intensifying. However, there is a noticeable trend of adopting nationalist, incarcerate and hostile behavior towards migrants, ethnic minorities or refugees. Increasing the attitude of intolerance and discrimination towards these individuals causes greater difficulties in their process of social inclusion, which in itself is already quite difficult.

Goals:

  • Provide youth workers (through non-formal education) with basic skills to be able to encourage the transformation of the most vulnerable social realities and more effective action with ethnic minorities, migrants or refugees;
  • Promote the spread of the values of diversity, multiculturalism and tolerance throughout society;
  • To promote intercultural dialogue, cooperation between European organizations and the participation of young people with fewer opportunities in society;
  • To raise the awareness of young people, young people and society in general about the problems and processes of social exclusion faced by migrants, refugees or ethnic minorities, in order to reduce prejudice and discrimination;
  • Promote the social inclusion of young migrants, refugees or ethnic minorities, by increasing the skills of youth workers with the skills and learning that enable this integration;
  • Promote the social participation of young migrants, refugees and ethnic minorities in society.
