Europe, borders, welcoming, asylum right. Keywords on which Europe is questioning about. A cause of reflection determined not just by the daily pressure on the European borders, but also by the great numbers of migrants already hosted.The increasing young population encourage European people to an assessment and an immigration policies’ re-examination.The AS.Y.LUM project aims to promote, within 18 months, active citizenship, to raise awareness and to strengthen the participation of young migrants and young Italians to the social and political life, through the realization of n. 2 national events and n. 1 online consultation in which young people and policy makers will discuss the theme of asylum seekers’ policies and the integration’s opportunities offered to the immigrants.The project will include 30 participants (including 10 migrants) and about 15 policy makers who will be actively involved by GUS ngo and Roads of Europe Association in a process of participation and dialogue.The active role of young immigrants will be essential. The 10 young immigrants will be chosen among the guests of the hosting projects for refugees and asylum seekers managed by Gus.For these youngs the project represents the first real opportunity to participate actively in the political life of the host territory, meeting other young people and facing with the stakeholders that deal with the policies that affect them.“Associate ‘nd Participate”, keywords of the first event that want to focus on the importance of joining, discuss, understand the differences and then actively participate in youth policies.These issues will be discussed with decision-makers to understand the status quo of hosting immigrations and asylum seekers policies in Italy.With “You Decide” event it is up to young people comment on how they see Italy but more generally Europe: where are the rights and for whom? What is actually done for the integration? Migrants are a resource?The online consultation (an opinion poll) will be the instrument of comparison to understand what young people think of the right of asylum and integration policies ongoing.And “Load Ur Mood” is the final event: the group of young participants will think about the findings, data, informations and emotions to open a constructive dialogue with policy makers.Within this event, during a workshop with different decision makers, the young participants will present an on-line publication containing all the survey results and recommendations.In order to give continuity to the project, to contribute to youth policy of hosting and integration it is important the consolidation of the AS.Y.LUM network where partners, stakeholders and young people can continue to discuss, plan and act together to build a Europe of rights.
