September 4 was an intense day for the participants of the project. On that day, a discussion panel entitled ” Migration Crisis And the EU’s Integrity – Is It Possible to Find a Common Position?” was held.

The participants of the project actively participated in the meeting, which concerned the current life of migrants from Ukraine in Poland. The presentation itself as well as the discussion that took place afterwards brought the guests closer to the situation of Ukrainians in Poland – problems they face, forms of assistance, events organized by and for the Ukrainian minority, etc. The participants of the project actively participated in the meeting that concerned the current life of migrants from Ukraine in Poland.
On September 5th, the participants of the project took part in two panels concerning migration. The discussion ‘Labour Migration – a Chance or a Challenge?’ moderated by Myrosława Keryk focused on various – both positive and negative – aspects of economic migration in Europe. Lucija Vasiljević, representing the Zasavje Regional Development Agency, was among the panellists in the debate. Another interesting point of the day was the panel ‘Integrating Immigrants – Social Challenges to be Faced, Political Price to be Paid’. One of the panelists was a representative of the Association of Local Authorities of Western Macedonia, Lefteris Topaloglou. The participants of the discussion tried to find an answer to the question of how to stop the migration crisis and how to integrate immigrants effectively.
