INTEGRA project team met on March 6, 2019, with the project team of NEMO: Using the New Media in Education to overcome Migrant Online Discrimination, which is composed of nine other organizations coming from Italy, Austria, France, Hungary and Bulgaria. Both projects are co-funded by the European Union’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund. INTEGRA project manager Sevdalina Voynova lead the joint project session - during NEMO kick-off meeting in Sofia - aiming at sharing and transfer of knowledge and best practices, and local awareness-raising activities to facilitate integration. The two teams discussed together stakeholder involvement, joint communication and dissemination channels and efforts, including the upcoming INTEGRA European briefing in Brussels on June 11, 2019.
Within the project Integration of third country nationals through urban partnerships – INTEGRA, The Center for Peace made four infographics:
1. Statistical data on the number of persons who have been granted international protection and the number of applicants for international protection,
2. Data on the City of Osijek,
3. Local Integration Plan for the City of Osijek,
4. Rights of the asylum seekers and foreigners under the subsidiary protection.
Through the created infographics, we are informing and sensitizing the public about third country nationals, their rights, integration in the city of Osijek and the adopted integration plan.
We started the campaign at the Faculty of Economics of the University Josip Juraj Strossmayer in Osijek, where more than 20 thousand students will have the possibility to see the above-mentioned infographics.
