Project summary

Together we live is aimed at including newcomers and rural youth, among other marginalized and minority groups, experiencing more social disparities because of the structural barriers they face every day. We want to confront on these barriers wich are geographical or situational, by connecting young people who stem from histories of marginalization, discrimination and other social injustices.

Belonging to one or an intersection of these identities increases a youth’s risk of unemployment and social exclusion. In this framework we want to activate marginalized Young people to find strategies to overcome the barriers they face and impeding their social integration, supporting them toward a better access to support services, economic restrictions. Final goal is empower marginalized Young people and increase the chances to reach a good life quality and be active in the community.

Reducing barriers to integration for marginalized youth within a community will require the help of the young people who experience these barriers. This is why this youth exchange want to engage marginalized and minority youth to think and confront on ways to make their community a more inclusive place for young people. We want to help marginalized and minority youth to be aware that they have diverse knowledge, perspectives and lived experiences that, if tapped into, can greatly enrich European community cohesion efforts.

The final goal is to realize a social campaign spreading youth considerations for engaging rural, newcomer youth in the construction of a more inclusive Europe.

The project result will be the enhancement of the wish and ability of the Young people to take part in the democratic life in Europe as active and critical citizens. A long-term goal for the project is to raise participants; their awareness and understanding of other cultures and countries through reducing of the negative influence of intolerance and discrimination.

More details on the project topic

We will start by sharing some presentations on the issues of exclusion, marginalization of young people in the countries involved. The participants will learn more about the situation of refugees, of the

immigrants, minorities in all partner countries. After the participants will work on creative solutions that

will be presented by them in the final public event with the local audience.

The process will start helping young people think about their situation in their personal life answering the following question: "How can we show that our youth group is open and inclusive? "An inclusive youth group is the place where a young person will feel welcome, safe and comfortable and capable of expressing his own identity, especially those aspects of identity that make it different from others like culture. ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, gender, health including mental health, education, parenting status. We will reflect on how an inclusive space should be, on how make we can make it easier for different young people to fully participate in a group. We will look for solutions to enter into relationships with different groups of people, and to make sure that exchanges with other groups are common. Finally we will realize how our space is also inclusive if we make awareness-raising and anti-discrimination programs and activities.
