The project is intended for 32 youth workers, youth educators, members of civil society organizations from 15 European Union and the Neighboring countries who are ready to actively fight against radicalization, discrimination and intolerance against refugees and migrants in their countries and who want to transfer the knowledge they gained in the project to the youth in their organizations and countries.

To ensure a long term impact we will involve same  youth workers in both activities of the project.

The Training Course (Armenia) and the Study Visit (Sweden) have the following main objectives:

  • To provide conceptual framework on the notions of emigration, immigration, integration and multiculturalism to 36 youth workers from different European countries;
  • To analyze the emigration and immigration situation in participating countries and to find out the causes of migration, namely push and pull factors;
  • To discuss and analyze the current refugee crisis migration challenges in Europe and try to offer solutions from the perspective of youth work;
  • To foster tolerance, respect and open-mindedness towards migrants while working with young people as a target group;
  • To share experiences and best practices of integrating young migrants in youth organizations;
  • To equip youth workers with capacity to combat hate speech towards migrants, misinformation about refugees and xenophobic discourse;
  • To create a network of NGO’s willing to be involved in the migration management process and contribute to the refugee integration process in participating countries.

100% of all the travel costs of the participants within the maximum limit per country will be reimbursed.
