Project background

Though migration is nothing new, never in the past has there been so much effort put into fostering understanding and peace, finding solutions for social inclusion of immigrants and promoting diversity as it is now.  It is so, because dialogue and direct encounter are seen as necessary means for creating a peaceful world both on a global and local level.

The key to creating tolerant, open-minded, critical and diverse society is to enable already young people of different origins, religions and cultures to meet, discuss and so to discover how enriching it can be to live in societies marked by diversity. Active participation in a dialogue is necessary to fight xenophobia, racism and intolerance.

Migration-Culture-Identity aims at fostering understanding of migration as a social phenomenon and encouraging civil engagement of youth for the sake of peaceful and tolerant co-existence of people of different origins, religions and cultures in Euro-Mediterranean region, in individual countries as well as in local communities.
