Idea pitch

With boundless solidarity we’ll continue our efforts directed to tackle social exclusion, radicalization by youngsters a. support integration of refugees a. migrants. We see a need for a coordinated approach to integration, a modern immigration law for the EU! In transnational coop. we set priorities on expanding of social capital for a real participation in decisions on administrative a. political level. We'll act stronger in ngo with different actors to influence a. ensure political decisions.

Where will your idea take place?

Rostock, Malmö, Baltic Sea by ferry

Why does Europe need your idea?

We are addressing a challenge at a regional level in participating countries. Northern Germany is a transfer region. Lots of civil actors are not or minimal experienced in transnational refugee engagement. We need qualification and more efficient networking. For this we will integrate young engaged in already existing initiatives for better coordination of tasks and responsibilities. They will get inputs by professionals like migration council, responsibilities of governments and communities.

What is your impact?

We'll try to establish solutions for recognition and integration especially for young refugees a. migrants. Parallel we’ll motivate to civil engagement by young people. We hope to foster EU citizenship & participation by all involved participants.Therefore we want to support stronger the youth initiatives &.member associations. Their work has to be better acknowledged, also by politicians & media! Focus at common vision: demands and proposals to the EU Council for a common human migration policy

How do you get there?

Our steps toward implementation will follow 3 dimensions: youth political step, exchange of various concepts & ideas and their implementation in involved partner regions. steps: We contact young interested a. engaged people in North Germany a. partner regions (age 17-26) all in all 70 people + media team / 65 h workshops, 20 excursions / workshop topics: contributions of voluntary engagement, challenges for self engagement, org.- a. network management, public relations, practical workshops, exchange of experiences, meetings with experts a. migration self org., exchanges of good practice by cross border coop. a. conclusion of all results for spreading them in our network. In addition we'll produce clips against stereotypes and for engagement motivation in social networks and follow up.
