Workshop on inclusion of migrants in the EU societies

Invitation to the Interactive Workshop on Inclusion of Migrants in the EU Societies on 13 February, 5 p.m.

Justyna Glodowska-Wernet offers an interactive workshop on inclusion of migrants in the EU societies Pictures of boats in the Mediterranean and refugee camps that flood the media but are just a part of the reality. The success stories of immigrants who learned the language of their host country, make friends, volunteer or go to a local sport club rarely make headlines. Yet, every year, many people come from abroad to study, work or join their family in an EU country. Over 8% of EU population has a background from outside the EU: they, or one or their two parents, came to live here. What integration or inclusion really means? How to support the inclusion of immigrants in our societies? What is the EU role when it comes to migration and integration? What does the European Commission do to help? Join me for an interactive workshop to explore the inclusion of immigrants in the EU societies. The workshop will be a mix of a presentation and discussions in groups.
