Where will your idea take place?


Why does Europe need your idea?

What is the European Citizenship? To feel European, the refugees must become aware of the fact that they play a role in the construction of the current and future Europe. Therefore, a project with a European dimension should not only "discover" Europe, but also and most importantly, aim to build it.
Refugees people can feel European citizens like other people withought of discrimination, rasism, xenophobia. They will be enccourged to exprime their feelings, their stories, their ideas.

What is your impact?

Outcome: Documentary film with intervews of refugees.The people from Europe will understand better them and they could help them to be integrated in their countries after the documentary will be presentated at the international festival at Berlin. Will be changed the mentality of European people about refugees.

How do you get there?

We'll contact the centers where the refugees are living, we'll propose them to be confident with us telling their stories. After this we'll do the intervews with them with our technical team. The intervews will be the support of a documentary film with the title of the project.
