Empowerment for the political and civic participation of young migrants

In Europe and in the world a demanding challenge – migration, is putting in our society a huge pressure. We believe nevertheless, that migration and in particular young migrants can be an added value for the development of our countries and communities. For these reason 9 organizations active on the field of youth work from Sweden, Finland, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Cape Verde, Guinnea-Bissau, Mozambique and Sao Tome and Principe have decided to develop a long term cooperation project. During the 21 month of the project duration the partners will jointly implement activities such partners coordination meeting and international seminar in Sweden, training course in Cape Verde, local meetings in all partner countries, job shadowing between African and European countries, international conference in Portugal and evaluation meeting in Sao Tome and Principe. This project will involve 640 participants from partners countries from Europe and Africa. This project was designed to contribute for a different vision and approach into migration policy particularly addressing young migrants, where they are not viewed as a challenge but instead as a source of power, talents, and new energy for the receiving society..

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

Our project aims to contribute to for the capacity building of youth workers from civil society organizations, particularly the ones working with young migrants and public authorities at local and regional level to be able to increase the success of their integration policies on young migrants. At the same time that focus also on the capacity building of youth leaders from migrant communities and young refugees groups.
