PUT YOURSELF IN THEIR SHOES: Walk with the Refugees

A Youth Exchange on causes and dimension of the Refugee Crisis

This Youth Exchange will give the opportunity to young people to share their knowledge and reflect on Refugee Crisis, a phenomenon which is extremely crucial for today’s society. As the world faces a global displacement record, the need to cooperate in order to promote active citizenship and enhance sustainable solutions is more and more urgent, especially in Europe.
After a first introduction to refugee crisis causes and dimensions, the different reactions of several European countries towards this matter will be discussed. The influence media has on public opinion while reporting news will also be a topic of interest.

Objectives of the project:
- Increase the empathy of the participants towards the refugee issue and populations
- Explore the dimensions of refugee crisis, within the framework of human rights and legal recognition
- Work on ideas for local and international volunteering and educational initiatives to tackle the refugee crisis
- Give participants the space to share good practices and personal experiences
A Youthpass certificate will be provided to the participants at the end of the project.
