INSIDE – Social Inclusion for Employability

An estimated 9 million Syrians have fled their homes since the outbreak of civil war in March 2011, taking refuge in neighbouring countries or within Syria itself. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), about 2.5 million have fled to Syria’s immediate neighbours Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. 6.5 million are internally displaced within Syria. Meanwhile, under 100,000 have declared asylum in Europe with a small number offered resettlement by countries such as Germany and Sweden. Therefore, a lot of migrants face to a greater concern of unemployment by the reason of social exclusion.

Understanding that nowadays issues leads to growing needs of youth workers to improve and implement intercultural skills in work with migrants as well as to promote their active participation and social inclusion. New innovative and creative approaches can really have better impact on this, especially to improve the employability skills.

Addressing to a group of youth workers and civil society activists who often face the challenge working with migrants, this training course aimed at fostering their intercultural skills and competences. At the same time TC promoted new innovative ways of increasing employability among migrants through the social inclusion and inter-cultural dialogue. Furthermore this TC provided new tools to improve the work with migrant communities, particularly in the field of social inclusion and intercultural communication.

Contact Making Seminar

CMS took in Gothenburg, Sweden from 9 – 13 of April 2017. April 9th is the arrival day, April 13th – departure day, April 10 – 12 were three networking days.

The goal of CMS:

was to develop a network of reliable partner organisations willing to collaborate in the future project financed by Erasmus+ programme on the topic of intercultural communication and social inclusion or other related topics.

The initial idea was to find partners to work together on a long-term (2 year) project that was supposed to focus on adaptation and upscaling of “Does Culture Matter” training programme to address the needs of organisations working with integration and inclusion on national and international levels.

However, we saw CMS as an opportunity to network and develop other Erasmus + projects on the topics relevant for partner organisations.

About “Does Culture Matter?”:

“Does Culture Matter?” was a training programme realised with the financial support of the European Commission and with participation of European and Asian countries in 2015. As a result of this project we developed a three-phase training course that covered culturally crucial topics relevant across various sectors, such as for profit companies, universities, NGOs and public bodies. Find out more information on the project website doesculturematter.org and in this video.

4th Transnational Meeting

2-3 March 2017 – Lubiana

Attention to the accompaniment of vulnerable people and step by step support in the definition of entrepreneurial ideas: this is what emerged on the 2nd  and 3rd  of March in Ljubljana during the fourth transnational meeting of Ctrl+Alt+Enterprise.

During the meeting in the Slovenian capital, the partners shared the development of tools for the start of experimentation activities, models for evaluating the competences of candidates and business ideas, as well as schemes for the creation of a network involving public actors, the private sector and institutions. One of the main added value that emerged is the contamination of working styles among the partners; aspect that will be further investigated during the training event scheduled in Ljubljana from the 3rd  to 7th of April.
