Enhancing the level of social inclusion of Youth migrants and refugees, co-desgining policies through the setting up of consultation bodies at local and european Level

Immigrants, as long as they remain foreigners, generally cannot inform the national policies that affect their daily lives. On one end of the MIPEX (Migrant Integration Policy Index) scale, a few EU Member States grant all residents, whatever their nationality, the same political liberties, local and regional voting rights, access to funding for civic participation, and consultative bodies of diverse residents. With our project we aspire to fil this gap in line with the Action Plan on Integration and Inclusion 2021-2027, we mainly want to focus on the target group of young migrants aged 19-26.


The project for Transnational actions on asylum, migration and integration aims to support the setting up of consultative bodies of youth migrants at local and EU level, in  close cooperation with public authorities. The main objective is to create a system composed of european and local consultative bodies involving migrants and refugees, taking into account the different frameworks of legislations of the member States involved in the project. An active participation of  migrants in consultative and decision-making processes can contribute to their empowerment and long-term  integration into society for a mutual and better understanding and improvement of the policy framework in each  country. The projects develops concrete awareness for the Member States that hosts migrants and refugees. Their involvement will further contribute to enhancing the cultural background and skills of migrants and refugees and will facilitate social inclusion in the European context, also in terms of active European citizenship.


The multi stakeholder approach promoted by the partnership (composed by NGO expert in training and education, Universities,  Municipalities and governmental LA) aims to reinforce the cross-border cooperation on these points. Working in a EU-wide partnership is inspiring and helps to get closer to EU standards of best practice, and realize the principles of good migrant integration/empowerment.

We can count as much as 13 partners, belonging to Spain, Italy, Greece, France, Malta, Sweden, Belgium and the  Netherlands. For all partners, the project represents an opportunity to capitalize and upscale experiences from past  projects involving youth with migration background, enhancing capacity building, designing and implementing policy areas that affect youth with the aim of improving a long term sustainable system of social inclusion.

Project SCALE


Scaling Up Applied Creativity Labs for Europe

The main objective of this project is to address current local and regional environmental and climate change issues faced by communities across Europe through an innovative methodology known as “Applied Creativity Labs”.

The Commission’s 2016 Communication ‘Investing in European Youth’ stressed the importance of opening up new opportunities for young people, with high quality education playing a key role in their positive development and life chances. High quality education underpins inclusive and resilient societies. Inclusive and resilient societies, promotes personal development and lays the foundations for active citizenship.

However, if European societies are to reap these benefits, high quality education must become a reality for all learners Applied Creativity Labs are a unique teaching and learning methodology that focuses on critical thinking and solution-centred learning, through which inspiration meets organisation; which have been developed by IVE in the UK. The focus is on harnessing imagination and artistic vision to effectively implement innovative ideas. Applied Creativity Workshops (ACL) are designed to give young people the creative behaviour and critical thinking skills which, when applied to real-world challenges, help them to develop innovative solutions to pan-European problems.


ACLs also aim to inspire participants to educate them for potential

pursue future careers and jobs in relevant fields through the interactive involvement of experts in the field, known as role models. The process starts by presenting young people with an overview of what the ‘challenge’ is, e.g. air pollution, sustainable agricultural practices, climate change, etc.

The project aims to disseminate a creative teaching methodology applied across Europe, to get the best out of young people’s minds to generate innovative and unique ideas and produce “out of the box” solutions to current European environmental challenges.

Supporting school-educators in use of cultural heritage for inclusive digital education

The integration of digital cultural heritage in compulsory education is more important than ever, as the challenges faced for the educational and cultural sectors due to COVID-19, require a strong reliance on digital teaching and learning. While the national curriculum can differ from country to country within the European Union, the focus on our common European history, cultural heritage and the heritage of migrant and marginalised populations in Europe, is as relevant as ever. Digital cultural heritage is envisaged as a powerful online education vehicle to teach in STEAM subjects. CHERISHED, seeks to set forward the path for a sustainable plan toward such integration.

The CHERISHED project aims to:

– Provide a pedagogical framework and concrete recommendations for adoption by educational ministries across Europe

– Enhance the capacity of secondary school teachers toward integration of digital cultural heritage in their everyday teaching practices across the curriculum.

– Support school educators to safeguard the inclusive nature of digital learning opportunities in and through cultural heritage.

– Promote innovative quality resources and tools for school educators for integration of cultural heritage towards inclusive digital education.

– Provide an impact and evaluation tool for teachers’ self-assessment of their readiness to reuse digital cultural heritage in compulsory education.

– Promote awareness on the importance of cultural heritage readiness for inclusive digital education in Europe.

The intention through the CHERISHED project is to reach over one hundred (100) secondary school students, who will participate in pilot and implementation phases of the designed-based research pursued. Over sixty secondary school teachers and principals will participate in the pilot and implementation phase and the learning activity of the project.
