EU-4-UM: European Union for the inclusion of Unaccompanied Foreign Minors

In view of the migration flows some European countries are confronted with, several international and European reports have recently raised the issue of unaccompanied foreign minors. In an effort to harmonise the practices and strengthen equity to the non-accompanied foreign minors, the reports note a high demand for training of actors on the ground (particularly social workers, educators, psychologists, legal experts) who are in contact with this population.
Project life span: 2017-2019

The project "Library of Things" initially aims to spread the idea of LoTs in the partner countries and beyond. Since LoTs are working together for the first time in a European project, we focus on the exchange of information, the presentation of EU funds to support the idea of Sharing Economy and the recruitment of new target groups. Secondly, we try to attract new target groups to our libraries by forming mixed groups of participants for workshops in all the countries involved. We see the opportunities to bring together different parts of a society of valuable means to support the idea of solidarity, but also to empower people about sharing economy and offer them shared experiences compounding for a conscious life.

We are convinced that education in the current immigration to Europe has a key role. We see throughout the discussion two main stages: First, the granting of asylum is a human right to which we are committed without any reservation. Second, the next step is the decision of the refugees to integrate into European societies. Since the ideas, hopes, opinions and knowledge of Europe among refugees differ widely, we would like to eliminate information deficits, set in motion educational processes and produce in addition to learning the local language. We see our duty to support the migrants in their integration process the best we can. //Project life span: 2016-2018
