Description

“European Y.O.U.T.H.: welcoming refuges!”, JEF’s third activity in 2016, will take place from the 6 – 10 July in Valletta- Malta; because of its position in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea and because of its symbolic relevance in the refugee or Mediterranean crisis.

The participants are expected to develop practical skills in order to fight intolerance against migrants.

Thanks to this international activity, participants will be empowered and have more competences in order to influence society and the democratic processes towards a more inclusive and peaceful society.
