CONTENT AND TOPICS
“In/outside of Lifeboat”
In view of the dramatic images that can be seen daily on the screens of international television stations, there is no shortage of warnings that speak of a new “migration period” in world history, and Europe is facing the greatest migration since the Second World War.
It shows us, however, that the EU countries are not prepared to accept such influxes in order to find an urgent solution to this problem. The refugee population is mainly made up of young people aged between 13 and 30, and when the percentage of the young population (13 to 30 years) is taken into account, it is around 60%, and the censuses are increasingly targeting 80% of all refugees.
Most of these young people should be trained to prevent their future marginalization and be included in society. With regard to these issues, there should be opportunities for young refugees to participate in educational processes in the youth field in addition to school education. These are problems that youth workers can address in order to provide educational opportunities and access in the EU.
With the meeting of experts from youth work we want to address the problem of integration of refugees in the non-formal educational context of youth work and create synergies between the participating organizations for future cooperation in integrative educational methods.
The project therefore aims to strengthen the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in order to find suitable approaches to promote the integration of refugees and also marginalized young people.
The project will run from 14th-22nd October 2019.
