Welcome to the third newsletter of the project of social inclusion through Self-education and learning for migrants “Educate Yourself” in the framework of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships programme.
This newsletter will give you more information about the third Intellectual Output of the project
The project’s aims are to outline migrant’s needs in the field of social inclusion; to create a set of tools, training, and guidance materials, to support migrants in process of social, cultural, linguistic and economic inclusion; and to create an innovative on-line platform, which consists of helpful and useful information and materials, which each migrant may use, in the process of incorporation to the local environment.
In order to do so, the Belgian, Bulgarian, Greek, and Spanish partners of the project collected various practices and information in the field of supporting migrants. These practices were studied to obtain a transnational view on how to better support and help migrants to settle down and to increase their skills and knowledge with the final objective to actively include migrants in the labor market and in the social and economic life. All of the information gathered was summarized, based on the migrant’s needs. Those thematics served as a basis for creation and development of set of tools – a set of training and guidance materials, to help migrants in their cultural, linguistic, economic, and social integration.
