Background

 

The issue of migration and cultural diversity is prominent on the political agenda, particularly in how to respond to migration from outside Europe and levels of refugees and asylum seekers.  In these circumstances,  public sector policy-making agencies across Europe are aware of the importance of creating strong community harmony and fostering tolerance.  

 

The role of youth workers is key in shaping the opinion and outlook of young people and to help young people embrace diversity to keep community cohesion strong.  

 

This project has cultural diversity as its central theme and seeks to create new methods for engaging young people in learning about other cultures.

The Project

 

The project brings together five partners to pool their expertise, share skills and create new methods for engaging young people in learning about cultures around the world.  They started by researching current diversity training for youth workers within their countries to provide the context.

 

A combination of staff training, visits to overseas projects by young people to see examples of good practice, the publication of a good practice guide and the use of social media will all help engage youth workers and young people.  It  will ensure they have the awareness, acceptance and capacity to openly embrace other cultures.

Timeline

 

This is a two year project, starting in April 2017.
