You (th) work with refugees in non-formal education


21-22 November 2019 | Youth Centre Märjendall (Luxembourg), Luxembourg

Youth workers are increasingly confronted with people who with a migration background or refugee experience. Inclusion in society is a key! This is an exchange good practices for Belgian,German,French,Austrian,Dutch,Swiss and Luxembourg youth workers.

Nowadays youth workers all over Europe are increasingly working with people who have a migration background or refugee experience. Inclusion in society is a key element to help these people feel good in a country. Large opportunities are given by this diversity not only for the people who have recently arrived in a country, but also for people, who have already been living here for a longer time. In this inclusion process, non-formal education can play an important role, as this field provides the perfect space for intercultural learning experiences.

Some challenges are the same for all countries; however, every country has its own complexity due to its political, infrastructural, geographical and financial situation. An exchange with youth workers of other countries is needed to see how they deal with the situation and which long-term projects or activities they offer. New input for the institutions and NGOs, the exchange of best practices and the potential for new cooperation between two or more countries could be an outcome of this seminar and inspire participating youth workers in their daily work.

The training brings together youth workers from Belgium, Germany, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Luxembourg, to achieve the following aims:

Empower youth workers working with young refugees and asylum seekers;

Exchange of best practices from different countries;

Strengthen the international cooperation between youth workers and institutions;

Initiate future international cooperation projects.

The program of this two-day seminar in the Youth Centre Märjendall (www.marienthal.snj.lu) includes a keynote speech and best practice presentations, three workshops from which the participants can choose two, exchange sessions, as well as a networking event.
