The high migratory pressure and the rise of identity politics that the European Union has had to face in recent times have made the inclusion of newly arrived migrants in their host societies increasingly challenging. The two dominant models of integration in Europe, multiculturalism and assimilationism, have partially failed to achieve the real integration of third country nationals.

On the one hand, multiculturalism has contributed to the formation of ghettos, while on the other hand, the assimilation model has forced the migrants to abandon their previous identity.

In this regard, host communities should better meet and understand new migrants and their needs. Real and successful integration of migrants in host societies requires direct interaction between people of different communities, as well as intercultural and interreligious dialogue. This interaction may also eradicate issues such as xenophobia, radicalisation and racism and improve the socio-economic condition of migrants.


By strengthening the social interaction between local people and young migrants through 4 campaigns, Inclusive Europe aims at facilitating the inclusion process of newly arrived migrants into host societies and improving their socio-economic conditions.


Θα αναπτυχθούν 4 στρατηγικά σχέδια δράσης (Europe for Solidarity; Intercultural Europe; Intergenerational Europe; Let’s Go Forward Together).

The Strategic Action Plans will be based on in-depth research, mapping the existing situation, the needs, best practices and other intercultural activities implemented in Belgium, Greece, Italy, Spain, Hungary and the Netherlands.

The Recommendation Paper will address local, national and EU institutions promoting the intercultural and interfaith approach in the definition of local integration policy.

The paper will also support the development of supportive local clusters as a measure of social cohesion.

Η εκστρατεία "Europe of Solidarity" έχει ως στόχο να προσφέρει στους μετανάστες ένα καλύτερο και αποτελεσματικότερο σύστημα καθοδήγησης, το οποίο μπορεί να είναι πιο κοντά στις ανάγκες των μεταναστών και πιο ευαίσθητο στις προσωπικές τους εμπειρίες.

This programme will be composed of two modules. The first module will establish a peer mentoring system that will allow each migrant to have a personal mentor to assist him/her with bureaucratic procedures, accessing basic needs, etc.

Η δεύτερη ενότητα θα περιλαμβάνει τοπικούς εθελοντές και πρώην μετανάστες και θα βασίζεται σε σειρές εργαστηρίων και δραστηριότητες που αποσκοπούν στην παροχή χρήσιμων πληροφοριών στους μετανάστες για την αντιμετώπιση των καθημερινών τους προκλήσεων.

In short, this campaign will include: training for local volunteers and social workers, courses and workshops on dealing with daily problems, communitarian breakfast to foster social interaction between migrants and local volunteers, and empowerment and re-planning of life for women affected by violence.

The Intercultural Europe program is composed of a set of training, activities and interactive workshops, structured in such a way that stresses commonalities, underlines how different cultures can enrich everyone’s personal life, and sparks curiosity about different stories and cultures.

In short, this campaign includes the following: training sessions for local volunteers and staff, visits to important artistic/cultural and religious places within the city, storytelling sessions, film sessions, library sessions, football sessions.

These activities aim at fostering mutual understanding among migrants and local people.

Intergenerational Europe brings together elderly people who feel alone and look for company and young migrants who have not yet established contacts among native people and possibly having left their parents behind. This is a win-win situation, as young migrants will have the chance to practice the language of the host country.

In short, this campaign includes the following: training sessions for migrants on how to deal with elderly people, training sessions for elderly people about the customs and habits of young migrants, reading sessions, gaming sessions, cinema sessions.

These activities aim at fostering the mutual understanding between elderly people and young migrants, as well as at the sense of belonging to the same community.  

The Let’s Go Forward module includes volunteering activities for migrants in the field of recreational initiatives, social assistance and the promotion of cultural heritage. Migrants will be matched with local people to create mixed working groups.

Through the volunteering activities, migrants will develop hard and soft skills allowing them to understand which vocational activity best suits them; this will help social operators and mentors support them in creating their CVs and preparing for job searches.

This campaign includes the following: training sessions for migrants and local people, art festivals and sports events, painting/street art, interfaith/intercultural cuisine workshops, sessions between young migrants and their personal mentors.
