Start date: Nov 1, 2014, End date: Apr 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The immigration problem as well as the acceptance and integration will represent the main theme of the project. The mentioned theme has keep the status of actual problem in the last years, especially after the immigration phenomenon has increased and becomes more and more acute if we consider the fact that Europe is both a continent that provides immigration and that is welcoming immigrants. It is thus vital that the Europeans to respond to challenges in an efficient way. Unfortunately things do not happen exactly this way. It is easy to notice an increase in intolerance, the support for the xenophobic and populist parties, discrimination, presence of illegal immigrants that have basically no rights, parallel communities that hardly interact with the societies around them, Islamic extremism, the lost of the democratic freedoms, attempts to forbid the freedom of speech in the so called religion interest. Behind this stands a rooted insecurity, the phenomenon of a mass immigration as it is experienced or perceived, distorted images and unfortunate stereotypes about minorities in the mass-media and public opinion and also the lack of leaders to inspire trust and to articulate a clear view of the future destiny of Europe. The mix of these diversities with the freedom of the 21-th century from Europe offers an answer based on the fundamental European values. There has to be made a plan for a more confident Europe that will embrace diversity instead of putting it aside and willing to accept that there is nothing wrong with multiple identities. The main objective of “Spread your wings “project is to sensitize and increase the level of awareness of the youngsters in what relates the integration of immigrants.
