First, let us introduce ourselves. We are partners of ALL IN project, which is co-financed by Europe for Citizens Programme.
Our consortium shares the
strive, that migration is one of the oldest human trends, which shaped
countries, societies and national identities.
Huge mobility of global population for the last decades and especially for the last couple of years caused that host societies have consequently become increasingly multicultural and put into question the long-standing national identities of relatively homogeneous nations.
ALL IN project raises the awareness that migrations are not a new phenomenon. includes different target groups e.g. European Citizens, stakeholders, policy makers, NGOs representatives, migrants, asylum seekers, foreigners.
Each partner has to collect 3-4 migrant stories, which will be
published to the blog as part of the
activity ‘Faces of Migration.’
Historical facts teach us that statistics are usually easy to forget. People are moved by the real stories, where they can relate and see that at the end, we all share the same dreams and goals.
Moreover, partners have to collect food recipes, which will offer a chance to bring different cultures into people’s every day and let them think about importance of mutual understanding, acceptance, tolerance and reducing xenophobia & racism.
We are sure, that we all have stories to tell, stories we have lived from the inside out. Our memories are important and if we do not collect and preserve memories/stories, they will disappear forever.
All our stories and the stories of the people around us are unique and valuable treasures for our families and community.
