Aims & objectives

The specific objectives of the project “Tales of Inclusion” were:
• To strengthen and promote local and regional experiences aiming to counter the social
exclusion problem of young asylum seekers, promoting volunteering as an instrument
of social inclusion;
• To raise awareness among young people about the migration phenomenon, deconstructing
stereotypes and prejudices;
• To inform the public opinion about the topic of the reception of refugees in order to deconstruct
prejudices, stereotypes and reduce wrong ideas stimulating social tensions;
• To create a space for intercultural dialogue and learning promoting the acquisition of
the European citizenship;
• To favour a positive atmosphere for dialogue, comprehension and collaboration, seen
not only as acceptance and respect of ideas, values and other cultures, but also to
strengthen each individual’s cultural identity for a mutual enrichment;
• To develop and promote new positive speech of inclusion, giving the opportunity to
European young people and young asylum seekers to meet and share hopes, needs,
fears, expectations, competences and skills;
• To experiment innovative and involving strategies, based on non-formal and informal
methodologies;
• To use communication and artistic expression languages as experimental methodologies
of peer education;
• To establish a partnership and transnational network as starting point for future collaborations.

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

The project gathered a network of heterogenous partnership, including 5 organizations
coming from Italy, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary. The partnership guaranteed
a good balance of expertise and competences in the field of non-formal learning,
management of young people, and promotion of intercultural dialogue, as well as proper
project management skills, necessary to assure a good quality of the partnership network.

Training methods used & main activities

All the activities were carried out using the non-formal education method, which allowed
participants to get more involved in the activities, and at the same time allows a more
dynamic and interacting learning approach, where participants can share their knowledges
and their expertise.
Among the proposed activities there were:
• role plays and ice-breaking games;
• team building activities;
• brainstorming and energizers;
• discussions and debates;
• artistic workshops;
• study visits;
• intercultural evenings*.

Outcomes of the activity

A part from a video, which will be accessible on Youtube after the end of the training, the main concrete outcome of the youth exchange were two things. The first one is the creation of a book gathering all the poems written by the participants, and the second one was the participation in the event Digital Invasion with another local association in a local museum.
