About the project 
Migration has recently become a phenomenon of crucial importance for Europe, being it currently shaping its whole history. In fact, more than a million migrants and refugees crossed into Europe in 2015, sparking a crisis as countries struggled to cope with the influx and with integration issues.
Aims and general objectives:

The main aim of the project, therefore, is to develop and promote a new positive narrative of inclusion, giving the chance to young europeans and young migrants to meet and share their stories (their journeys) in order to match them with the needs of the communities they live in.

Specific objectives:
To contribute to migrants and refugees integration
To promote intercultural dialogue and learning
To promote inclusion, tolerance and mutual understanding / fight generalization, racism and stereotypes
To promote a change of perception towards migration and refugees
To analyze the migrants’ background, the migration flows and reasons behind it
To avoid generalization and promote “real life encounters” / to meet refugees and collect their stories
To raise awareness on the feelings, hopes, needs, fears, dreams, expectations, competences and skills of migrants/refugees and on their positive contribution to local communities
To develop strategies to match community needs and migrants’ stories
