Conference on Best Practices of Integrating Refugees and Migrants Through Youth Organisations

Home affairs, Migration and Integration
Date: Monday, 10 December 2018 09:00 - 13:30

Venue: European Economic and Social Committee

Kindly Hosted by the European Economic and Social Committee

With the participation of Vice President of the European Commission Jyrki Katainen

The European Scout Region of the World Scout Organization of the Scout Movement, together with its partners of the Time to Be Welcome project and in partnership with the European Youth Forum, have the great pleasure to invite you to a conference on "Best practices of integrating refugees and migrants through Youth Organisations" on 10 December 2018.

This conference will discuss a set of recommendations addressed to both policy makers and youth workers based on the outcomes of the large scale Erasmus + project "Time to be Welcome" in Greece and in France. The project involved more than 60 international long- and short-term volunteers who contributed to the integration of refugees in Europe and engaged several partners from different youth organisations. These recommendations will offer a valuable contribution to the ongoing development of the European Solidarity Corps.

It will also be a space to celebrate the engagement of Scouts and Young People through the award of three best practices to projects and initiatives who supported the integration of migrants and refugees into their host countries.

Vice president Katainen is a strong defender of the integration of refugees and migrants in the European societies. He will recognise the contribution of Youth Organisations during this conference.

The conference will be followed by a lunch.
