The overall aim of the project is to empower young people to be part of the integration
processes of migrants and refugees in their countries and introduce them to social
entrepreneurship as a tool for that.
The main objectives of the project proposal are:
– To raise awareness among young people about refugee situation in Europe –challenges
– Promoting positive attitudes, solidarity and understanding for refugees and migrants –
to introduce young people to the concept and practice of social entrepreneurship and
encourage them to become change makers
– Stimulate the civic participation of young people by encouraging them to be active in
corresponding to social issues in Europe trough social entrepreneurship
– Promote tolerance, mutual understanding and dialogue between young people of
The exchange will young people a platform to discuss topics that are usually not tackled
by formal education. Moreover, the most valuable results of the project will be the change
in attitudes of youth about their own role – they will realize the power of non-formal
education, active citizenship, social involvement, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
and the importance of not being ignorant, will promote responsibility towards the society.
We would like to achieve changing attitudes in young people-as ost of youth believe
refugee integration is only matter of government policies and civil society has no place
in those issues, they do not realize that those issues are important for the future of Europe
and other approaches can be used and multisectoral cooperation is needed with the
participation of civil society. Thus, we aim at achieving providing them with another point
of view, at empowering them and providing them with a tool such as social
entrepreneurship as an answer to important social issues.
