Promotion of mobility for refugees in the European Context

moveurope! – Promotion of mobility for refugees in the European context is a two-year project 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.

moveurope! Infocenter

legal migration for refugees in Europe

You have heard of legal possibilities of (further) migration to Germany and want to know more about it? You have questions about your residence permit and the associated job opportunities? Or do you work in the field of migration and want to know more about how refugees in the Dublin or visual procedures and what options refugees have to (continue) to migrate to Germany. These and many more questions will find an answer in our moveurope! infocenter. 

MOREurope ESC

Individual volunteering at migration_miteinander

With MOREurope we want to make Europe more tangible for young refugees and to create new avenues to empower by allowing them access to equal opportunities in Europe. 

We believe that European mobility opportunities should be accessible to everyone, not only for European citizens but also for young refugees, who should also take advantage of the wide range of opportunities that are otherwise precluded to them. We aim to a world in which equal opportunities for everyone are given, regardless of nationality and birth privileges. This vision is for us even more important within a world that is increasingly turning a blind eye on people with less opportunities  and where borders are being increasingly sealed.

Bewerbercafé

The Bewerbercafé (eng. Job Hunting Café) promotes integration for people with a migration- or refugee backgrounds in the local job market. The consultation hour offers the necessary orientation regarding the German labour market and its “codes of conduct” by providing individual guidance. During the sessions applicants will learn how to write a motivation letter, CV as well as how to prepare an application folder (dt. Bewerbungsmappe) that reflects current professional standards in Germany. Also, how to use appropriate search tools for job hunting will be shown. 

The job hunting consultation-hour is open and free of charge for anyone with a migration- or refugee background.

The opening hours for the Job Hunting consultation are Mondays from 17:00-19:00 and Wednesday from 15:00-17:00. 

The Bewerbercafé takes place in the migration_miteinander Infocenter, Marktstraße 3, 58455 Witten.

Assistance can be offered by agreement at other times as well. And you can also reach us under this number: +49 2302 4009436

Our moveurope! local groups

moveurope! We want to be a European network promoting refugees mobility rights in Europe through local action

Increasing young people’s access to mobility programs is one of the most important objectives of Erasmus+ and leads to so far roundabout 9 million people in Europe going abroad to other European countries both for short-term stays and longer periods. 

Getting to know Europe, exploring its variety and exchanging ideas and visions with other young people from all over Europe lays the foundation for an actively lived citizenship and thus remarkably contributes to Europe’s future as a united and solidarity-based entity. 

ESOP

European Structural Orientation Program for migrants

ESOP is an empowerment program for EU interns/ volunteers and refugees that we implement in the framework of an European volunteering project from September ‘20 to August ‘21. 

The perception of migration is often very negative and is mostly seen as a burden or a danger. This creates space for migrants to get discriminated and isolated from active participation in their hosting societies. To counteract this development, the project promotes and supports activities that favour the integration of migrants into active citizenship and construct a harmonious living together. At the same time, the project wants to promote an Active European Citizenship and exchange between young European. To do so, following activities are realized:

Yalla Integra!

Yalla Integra! aims to bring together young people with and without a refugee background from Witten and surroundings. The project will allow them to get to know each other and enjoy different activities as a big group or as a tandem in pairs.

During the first phase of the project the participants will get to know each other and learn about each other’s common interests and hobbies. They will meet once a week and support each other in everyday life situations, make excursions, do sports or create a language tandem.

(Y)our Europe?!

The project (Y)our Europe?! is implemented by migration_miteinander together and partners from Bulgaria, Italy and Turkey.
The main objectives of the project are to make Europe more tangible and to prepare young people to actively work for peaceful coexistence in multicultural societies.
 
(Y)our Europe?! started with a youth exchange in Witten from the 15th to 29th of July. Around 12 young people per country between 18 and 30 years, with and without a refugee background,  participated in various activities such as workshops on Europe and living together, excursions and intercultural theme evenings. Participants have learned to use tools such as social networks to promote intercultural exchange and communication.

Completed projects

Zeig mir deine Schule

The goal of “Show me your school!” (Ger. Zeig mir deine Schule!) is to inform young displaced people about Waldorf education and make the Waldorf school, which is usually an unknown education for some, more accessible.

We offer a film and photography workshop during the workshop in September at the Rudolf Steiner School in Witten. Not only students from the school will take part in the workshop but also displaced youth. During the workshop local students and displaced youth will work together on a photo exhibition about various education systems worldwide. Also, the participants will work on an “image film”, which explains in an entertaining and playful way the approach of the Waldorf School and anthroposophy and can be used by Waldorf schools throughout Germany.

This activity will not only promote peer-to-peer but also intercultural exchange and dialogue skills of the project’s participation. 

The project will be implemented as part of Waldorf 100.
