Project description The aim of the project is to implement a dialogue in which young people, together by studying and analysing different situations, make suggestions on how to facilitate the smooth integration of refugees and emigrants into our society. Project activities will focus on specific topics:
migration history, human rights, the rights of asylum seekers and refugees, the historical and cultural heritage and differences of the Nordic-Baltic countries, the recognition of cultural diversity in future communities in order to promote citizenship and an understanding of democracy. A successful equality process takes into account all aspects that ensure that we are all useful in society, motivated and treated fairly. This partnership involves 5 schools from different countries. It aims to encourage students and teachers from the Baltic and Nordic countries to work together to find tools for social inclusion and smooth integration into a new friendly society, building relationships based on mutual respect. This will foster dialogue and cooperation between individuals, regional educational institutions, youth organizations and educational institutions, with a strong focus on the role of young people and the smooth integration of refugees and immigrants, thus creating a host society.
