We are currently busy preparing for our Erasmus Plus Partnership Building Seminar, taking place in Manchester from 13th -20th of December.
Our partnership building seminar will welcome participants from Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Greece, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Lithuania & Italy and aims to bring together youth workers, youth leaders, project managers directly working with young people and people with a migrant or a refugee background in order to explore together migrant culture and to share the political, cultural, educational, economic approaches of different countries towards migrants and refugees.
The seminar will give participants the opportunity to share ideas, discuss various approaches on working with refugees and migrants; and develop youth projects that challenge stereotypes and prejudices, bring people together and celebrate intercultural youth work.
In this seminar we plan to build partnerships between organisations working with migrants and young people through supporting each others local work and devising youth exchanges together, aiming to bring together migrants and refugee young people from different cultures, from different countries to share their cultural background and develop their understanding of intercultural youth work.
So the overall aim of this long term project is to provide a safe space and opportunity for youth workers, youth leaders from European and migrant’ communities to work together, to share their information and knowledge on migrant’ cultures, to break stereotypes and prejudices concerning migrants and share experiences on how to bring different groups of young people together. To get familiar with the diverse migrant cultures and use it as positive tool in youth work. To establish partnerships and devise youth exchanges in order to involve young people from European and migrant communities, to work together and gain knowledge about migrant cultures.
