Welcome to Europe: a youth perspective on immigration
Start date: Aug 1, 2010,
'Welcome to Europe: a youth perspective on immigration' is a trans-national seminar aiming at gathering young people from different European countries actively involved in youth organisations to share their views, discuss different approaches and improve their know-how on the integration of immigrants in local communities as well as to discuss about the role of youth organisations as facilitators for the inclusion of youngsters with a migration background in the civil society and in the political life of a given local/regional/national reality.A total number of 80 participants will come to Malta from across the European continent. We have project partners from Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Norway, Slovakia, Slovenia, and the United Kingdom for a 4-day seminario discuss the topics connected to immigration and European citizenship. The seminar will follow three strongly related threads. First of all, with the help of facilitators, it will improve participant's knowledge about the most burning issues related to the integration of immigrants and its link with European citizenship. Secondly, participants will be asked to take common positions on policies aiming at facilitating active citizenship of young people with a migration background following the method of structured dialogue. Thirdly, the involved organisations will adopt common internal policies based on good practices in order to promote diversity in their membership and in their statutory bodies based on an open method of coordination.The methods used will be mainly based on non-formal learning and peer-to-peer education but also include more formal methods such as panel discussions with politicians and other stakeholders as well as plenty of debate groups and workshops. The learning activities will be complemented by a field visit to an immigration center as well as with social games and intercultural methods.
