CALL FOR ITALIAN PARTICIPANTS

ERASMUS+ YOUTH EXCHANGE: " A Million Voices "

ABOUT THE PROJECT: Thousands of people are still flocking to Europe for search of safety and better life. However, more often than not they end up in the place that does not want to use their potential, let alone welcome them. How to avoid that? Displaced people (DP) must be integrated better keeping in mind that their potential is an opportunity to grow and advance both culturally and economically. This is also true for internally displaced (2 million in Ukraine alone). Our diverse consortium of youth NGOs believes that youth work could be the main driver of integration; thus, a project "A Million Voices" will be hosted.

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES:

The main goal of this project is to make sure that NGOs and young people are aware of the successful means of integration through youth work and understand their ability to help the DP through various (social) activities.
 The objectives to reach this goal are to:
- exchange good practices of DP inclusion
- raise the qualifications and competencies of youth workers by developing new methods for DP inclusion;
- help local youth learn how to communicate with DP and lower their xenophobia;
- spread the main idea of the project to other NGOs and the general public.

 

The impact would by far be the greatest in Ukraine, which at the moment lacks the means to cope with the IDP crisis it faces. That is why there is an urgent for project such as "A million voices".
