M.E.E.T. project successfully completed
The final two-day meeting of the project M.E.E.T – Mobility for European exchange and training was held online on June 21 and 22. We presented to our partners from Austria, Italy, the Czech Republic and Germany the most commonly used methods of work in the field of social integration of migrants, asylum seekers and other vulnerable groups is Serbia. In addition, we shared experience from projects that IDC has implemented in recent years, such as the Lollipop circus, language support for adult migrants, the “You will never walk alone” project, which aimed to spread awareness about migrant problems and strengthen the capacity of the local community.
After reviewing migration flows on the territory of Serbia, we also presented the work of IDC in the field of integration of returnees, internally displaced persons, refugees, providing support to migrants and other vulnerable groups.
We left a special place for our local partner organizations that presented their projects and shared useful work methods with us. Social enterprise Pizza Laganizza shared with us its story about labor integration of migrants, and CRPC presented their work in the field of providing legal support and labor integration programs. The organizations Sigma Plus and JRS, members of the IRIS network, presented their work in the field of migrant integration.
By sharing experience and working methods among partner organizations on the project, we improved our knowledge in the field of youth work and strengthened inter-partner relations. We hope that this was the last in a series of online meetings, because despite a handful of interesting stories, discussions and exchange of knowledge, we missed the dynamics of an informal physical meeting.
ERASMUS+ M.E.E.T. – Mobility for European exchange and training is a project aimed at improving the competences of youth workers, broadening their understanding of practices in youth work and the interrelationships between formal and informal education, professional training and the labor market. The focus of the project is on young refugees, asylum seekers, migrants and other marginalized and vulnerable groups of young people.
