moveurope !- Promotion of mobility for refugees in the European Context
moveurope! – Promotion of mobility for refugees in the European context is a two-year project (3/2020-6/2022) which aims to promote and facilitate young refugees’ access to mobility programs through a strengthened youth work framework. The target groups of the project are youth workers that support young refugees or are involved in the mobility field, providers of mobility programs (such as youth exchanges, volunteer services and alike) and of course young refugees who wish to participate in such programs.
migration_miteinander e.V. is working with and bringing together 7 partner organisations: Universo (Italy), Progestion (Spain), Mobile Info Team (Greece), Conexx-EU (Belgium), Y-Peer (Bulgaria), Amsed (France), and SGN (Sweden). Together we are jointly working to produce a mobilityhandbook about the legal framework, mobility opportunities and useful information about the visa procedures, a toolkit on how to introduce this information through non-formal education methods, as well as online and offline training concepts.
The Mobility guide, Mobility toolkit and the training concepts will be ready by the end of may 2021 and then be tested in every country in two sessions each with youth workers and young refugees. Each organisation will then host one event to share this information in their respective countries and beyond. By the end of 2021, we will present all these tools in a big stakeholder conference that will take place in Brussels and finally there will be an active dissemination phase that will last until mid 2022.
In the long term, we want young refugees to be aware of the legal mobility opportunities which can be alternatives to irregular secondary movements. We want to facilitate their accessibility to these alternatives and create a strong European network of youth workers able to provide all this information. Finally, we aim at promoting an Active European Citizenship for young people with and without a refugee background.
