As we are successfully reaching the end of the European Erasmus+ project MYgrant METAMORPHOSIS – Professionalization Of Youth Workers – Integration Of Migrants Through Multi-Medial & Art-Based Learning, Net Media Lab participated in the 5th and final transnational project meeting of the project, which was held online on Tuesday 24 August 2021.
It is said, that Europe is undergoing the so called “migration crisis”. More and more people come to EU countries searching for a better future. Now that we can observe tensions resulting from the flow of people coming to EU countries, it is crucial for youth work, as the Agenda 2020 states, to enable people living together in diverse societies, including “preventing discrimination on any ground”.
The core idea that underpins the MYgrant METAMORPHOSIS project is to create a supportive environment for youth workers, in favour of social inclusion of young people with migrant background and reinforce their role as (European) citizens. This can be achieved by providing them and youth organizations with the set of methods and tools supporting youth workers in their professional activities on developing and improving migrants’ basic soft skills, taking initiative and extracting their potential by using art as a driver for education and integration.
The meeting provided a good opportunity for the consortium to discuss about the final pending issues of the project.
