"On the move: the challenges of young migrants"
Start date: Dec 1, 2012,
"On the move: the challenges of young migrants" is a Training Course to be held in Bansko, Bulgaria, in the beginning of 2013 and that will bring together motivated youth workers and youth leaders active in the third sector from 9 different European countries.It will create a non-formal space for exploring and discussing issues connected with Migration and analyzing the diverse manners how the related subjects are treated in our countries and in the European space in general. We find this topic to be extremely connected to the host country, a historical crossroad for various civilizations and that still today displays strong migration flows both inwards and outwards. During the TC we envisage to create an environment where youngsters can discover, reflect and debate about topics such as immigration, the status of refugees, anti-discrimination and integration policies. We will then explore the features of the European call for a common approach to migration and strive to discover what can and shall be done in order raise awareness for the importance of the conflict-ridden topic of Migration and to promote effective integration policies to allow immigrants to participate fully in the life of their host countries. Afterwards, thanks to the choice over non-formal education methods, we intend to actively involve the participants in the diverse working moments, sharing opinions, cooperating amongst themselves, learning from each other and ultimately conceiving project ideas together. Hence, we expect to generate an experience of great personal and professional growth with significant development of skills and competences that promote and facilitate the preparation and realization of projects and activities about Migration – at international or local level – by providing examples of the tools as well as the methods which may be used for the development of such projects.
