Re-Imagining Migration

Migration affects all the world, including Europe. It's a key feature of our contemporary world, but it still remains one of the least understood phenomena. As a number of migrants increases, a violent extremism is more visible. Such violent extremists are rising xenophobia and discrimination against immigrants. To reduce spreading negative portrayal of migrants in Europe, it's important to set and keep tolerant attitude among young people.

That's why the training course called Re-Imagining Migration took place in Žirovnice, Czechia between 16th and 22nd September 2019.

Young people are the ones who determine how the future world would look like, so we consider it significant that youthworkers should be aware of the causes, opportunities and consequences of migration in order to deepen and extend local activities in this field. To briefly introduce content of the project – during this training course, youth workers trained on strategies and actions to address the challenges and opportunities resulting from migration for young people. Activities were focused on how to prevent negative effects of migration (such as marginalisation) in society. Participants shared their country realities in this field, their personal experiences, best practices and innovation in youth work related to this topic. Exploring EU policies was part of the course too, and we took a look at influence of media. Non-formal education is the way we approached the project's objectives.
