Idea pitch

Responsible European citizens advocate for human rights for all, for migrants too. In order to build a young Europe based on understanding and respect, a fresh discussion on migration’s features, figures and facts is needed. Europe needs to be informed and inform the citizenship at large on the reasons why human beings choose to migrate, how the personal choice of migrating affects origin, transit, host communities. We want to discuss it with the future European leaders, in schools.

Where will your idea take place?

Italy, Central and Northern Europe

Why does Europe need your idea?

If youngsters take the stage in their communities and discuss important issues, you’re encouraging them to teach others and engage in finding new solutions to social challenges. 28 million youngsters aged 15-24 decided to migrate in 2013. New generations are migrant generations!

What is your impact?

Schools will take a role in facilitating a fresh debate on the perceptions of a “Migrant World” through their "ambassadors", in charge of organising open discussions in their communities. Food for thoughts to tomorrow’s leaders will build European multicultural cities free from fear and prejudice.

How do you get there?

We will involve migrants and refugees residing in the Protection System for Asylum Seekers and Refugees, mediators, lawyers, teachers in all activities taking place in secondary schools, with the main aim of fostering understanding of hospitality of migrants as a social activity. A platform of schools is established and institutions are supporting the Committee. We will organise 2 working meetings per month all over Europe, and a final gathering in a highly symbolic place, Lampedusa.

What is your story?

After the 368 human losses in the 2013 shipwreck in Lampedusa, we advocate for the opening of humanitarian channels and changes on migration and asylum policies. We promote a new culture based on mutual understanding and human rights, involving government, communities, civil society.

Who are you doing it for?

Young leaders in pre-electoral age, teachers, migration workers, migrants themselves, will seat at the same tables to discuss, exchange their views on Migration today, and meet in the symbolic venue of the Museum of Trust and Dialogue in Lampedusa, on October 3, 2018, "Day of Memory and Hospitality"

What do you need from the Advocate Europe community?

We want to hear stories of people who have explored a new understanding of migration in local communities; to know how inclusion can be fostered engaging and mobilizing young leaders. We want to build bridges where model of inclusion, understanding and respect of the differences exist!
