The aim of the project is to engage EU citizens together with migrants communities and new citizens with the main purpose to focus on the empowerment of the communities, to enforce the integration by bringing them to participate in different activities and workshops.
This project aspires to address the gap within the EU`s integration policy; most specifically the rise in stigmatization of TCNs that has only increased along the years; and the promotion of opportunities for inter-cultural engagement / volunteering at European Union level.

Project supported by Europe for Citizens programs that aims to promote intercultural dialogue, inclusion of third country nationals and volunteering.

Project has two main objectives:

  • Intercultural dialogue

The European Commission committed itself to promoting intercultural dialogue through different initiatives and Programmes. The Europe for Citizens Programme can contribute to achieving this objective by bringing European citizens of different nationalities and different languages together and by giving them the opportunity to participate in common activities. Participation in such a project should raise awareness on the richness of the cultural and linguistic environment in Europe. It should also promote mutual understanding and tolerance, thereby contributing to the development of a respectful, dynamic and multifaceted European identity.

  • Volunteering – expression of active European citizenship

Volunteering is an essential element in active citizenship: by giving one’s time for the benefit of others, volunteers service their community and play an active role in society. They develop the sense of belonging to a community thereby also gaining ownership. Volunteering is therefore a particularly powerful means to develop citizens’ commitment to their society and to its political life. Civil society organisations, associations of a European general interest, town twinning associations and other participating organisations often rely on volunteer work to carry out and to develop their activities.
