“These days, it feels to me like you make a devil's pact when you walk into this country. You hand over your passport at the check-in, you get stamped, you want to make a little money, get yourself started... but you mean to go back! Who would want to stay? Cold, wet, miserable; terrible food, dreadful newspapers - who would want to stay? In a place where you are never welcomed, only tolerated. Just tolerated. Like you are an animal finally house-trained.”
Zadie Smith, White Teeth
The project 'Integration through education' answers for the situation started in Europe in the beginning of 2015. More than 350 000 migrants were detected at the EU's borders in January-August 2015, compared with 280 000 detections for the whole of 2014. That 350 000 figure - an estimate from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) - does not include the many who got in undetected. UE leaders as well as national leaders of each UE member's countries are searching the way to solve this situation. In the European and national level they share refugees between all countries, improve procedures to claim asylum, stranger the borders. In the same time in almost all European countries people demonstrate against this decisions and against arriving of refugees. The European society is not prepare for a changes connected with globalization. There is not enough information about immigrants and refugees, their situation. There is no educational materials about this topic, which could be used by youth workers for workshop and another activities.
The aim of the ITE project is to create web platform with educational materials for people working with youth, especially with immigrants and refugees with open access to them, allowing them to put these topics in provided educational and integration activities. This is only way to build societies integrating immigrants and refugees, not their marginalization.
The main outcome of the project is a web platform with educational materials for those working with young people, mainly with immigrants and refugees, and to develop international standards for educational activities, as well as the development of contacts and international cooperation networks of people working with young immigrants and refugees.
