Erasmus+ project “people beyONd borders” is a TC to be held in Serbia, in February 2018. The main objective of the TC is providing participants theoretical and practical knowledge about current refugee’s situation in Serbia, Europe and tools to work with around the topic.
This TC is designed to introduce participants to the topic of migrations and current situation in Europe regarding migrants and refugees, and to share with them tools for fighting discrimination and building more inclusive society.
„people beyONd borders“ is a 10 days TC with the objective of providing participants with theoretical and practical knowledge about current migrant and refugee situation in Europe, and providing them with tools for understanding this problem, for fighting discrimination and building their community into more understanding and inclusive one.
From April 2015 until today, during “European Refugee Crisis”, over two million refugees and migrants have had their desperate journey to Europe, coming mostly from war-torn Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. These people came running away from unbearable life conditions in their countries, searching for safety and future for themselves and their families.
Their way to Europe is full of obstacles and difficulties and what they encounter once they finally reach Europe is devastating. They become subjects to discrimination, stereotypes, exclusion, and unfortunately even violence.
At the same time, media are either not reporting about this things or they’re sending incorrect, exaggerated and even dangerous information. All this creates atmosphere of not understanding, discrimination and prejudice towards refugees. In order to make first steps towards change of this atmosphere, we would like to provide young people with knowledge and tools they can use to make the change.
Through workshops, lectures, interactive presentations and discussions hosted by experts on the subject, participants will learn and practice different approaches to this situation which will hopefully inspire them to act and to share their knowledge in their own community.
19 participants from 6 countries – Serbia, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Italy, Slovenia and Portugal.
This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme.
