Refugee Cooperation Hub

April 1st - 30th October 2017

The project aimed to facilitate high school and university students to collaborate in an active and creative process jointly with asylum seekers, refugees, and vice versa. The successful implementation of the project the year before proves that migrants, refugees and  asylum seekers generate knowledge, talents and skills to new cultural environments, which at given adequate support represent a magnificent contribution to the society. This time we connected asylum seekers and refugees bringing experience, knowledge, talents, ambition and desire to work with students of vocational and technical programmes, university students and other youngsters. Accompanied by mentors’ support we stimulate cooperation and common creation of prototypes of handicraft products, which made space for intercultural dialogue, facilitated personal contact between people of different cultures and raise the awareness about the newcomers’ contribution to the development of society, moreover foster an open, inclusive society and social solidarity. Project aimed to promote creative plus working potential of young people and asylum seekers/ refugees as two of several vulnerable groups that are – lately – becoming increasingly burdened with coercive social passivity.

Project was supported by Republic of Slovenia, Government Communication Office.
