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


Expected results:

  • A final publication/book in which thoughts, reflections stories of migrations developed as “modern fairy-tales” will be presented
  • Promotion of the concept of “community match”, defined as the opportunity to match the stories, skills and knowledge of the migrants with the needs and opportunities of the community they live in
  • A social campaign aiming at changing the perception and view of local communities towards migrants and refugees
