Migration and inclusion: Chances and challenges for our future
Start date: Mar 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project consists of two eight-day-training events on the topic of “Migration and Inclusion” in Berlin and Amsterdam. They will be connected by a five-month tryout and evaluation period of conducting non-formal educational methods and best practices in all Partner Countries.The trainings will take place in May and October 2016. We expect trainees (at least four per country) from Germany, Romania, Netherlands, Greece, Spain, Bulgaria and Italy who have experience in working with youth and young adults. Moreover, our specific goal is to involve youth workers who are with fewer opportunities due to economical, social and cultural obstacles and/or who are of Roma/Sinti background and/or (descendants of) migrant and refugee families or work with people of those communities.Under the title "Migration and inclusion: Chances and Challenges for our future" the participants will learn, try out, discuss and evaluate a great variety of non-formal pedagogical approaches to deal with migration, inclusion, anti-racist education, stereotypes, transcultural communication and conflict management. The trainings also promote pedagogical approaches in dealing with the challenges and the opportunities arising in transcultural and pluralistic societies.This training project will be preceded by two job-shadowing mobilities. They will purposefully take place in the last preparation-phase of the training events so as to allow six selected youth workers from Bulgaria, Netherlands, Spain and Germany to get the opportunity to gain experience and exchange ideas in the partner organisations in Netherlands and Germany during this intense phase of the training’s preparation.In order to deal with the wide range of pedagogical approaches and to learn more about the topic of migration and inclusion the two trainings will include activities such as doing excursions and guided tours, working with creative and artistic methods or try out methods of anti-racist education or transcultural education, input lessons or watching and discussing documentary films or short movies.All of the activities in the program have the common factor of qualifying the trainees within the context of intercultural learning and stimulating them to develop and adopt new skills concerning the topics of migration and inclusion of migrants. Thus the participants will be able to use their newly acquired expertise in their work with youth and young adults and share and multiply what they have learned with fellow youth workers. A internet-blog-site will be used as working and dissemination-tool to collect and discuss the content during the whole project. The language of communication during the training will be English.
