Aims & objectives

The main objectives of the project could be identified as follows:
- Improve the participants’ personal and professional development through an experiential path that will bring them to raise their awareness about the subject of the course, but also by enabling them to acquire transversal skills
- Obtain a greater understanding of the cultural diversity, also through the examination of the different perspectives that will emerge about the concept of immigration
- Provide with methods, techniques and tools that will allow participants to work in their local realities, in order to put immigrants in the right conditions to effectively contribute to the growth of the hosting community
- Create incubator for ideas and further cooperation among organizations, strengthening the already existing synergies

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The Training course included the participation of 28 youth workers from the following Countries: Italy, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, North Macedonia, Turkey, United Kingdom

Training methods used & main activities

Non-formal and informal learning methods were used throughout the duration of the Training. The scheduled activities started from the identification of common definitions and focused on debates and round tables, that served also to share participants’ realities in their communities, as well as interactive workshops, also with specific simulations and role plays regarding diverse situations that migrants and refugees have to face in different contexts

Outcomes of the activity

Thanks to the activities carried out throughout the project, participants had the opportunity to improve their key competences, as defined in the Youthpass and specific in relation to the topics of the Training.
In particular, the intercultural dialogue and participatory educational process implemented let participants improve their social and interpersonal skills, increasing respect for each other and empathy, but also ability to work with different socio-cultural groups. Participants and partner NGOs developed broader perspectives and competences to implement new activities related to topics of social inclusion and integration of migrants and refugees, also though study visits in welcome shelters, as well as social and adult education centres that work to promote migrants and refugees’ integration, which fostered exchange of good practices.
Thanks to the planned activities, we obtained a strong impact among all the parts involved in the project (participants, local community, partners and international networks).
