EventBees

30 young people from all over Europe are invited to learn how to organise events, attracting and collaborating with local people and actively participate in social life of community.

Description

The Issue

Minorities, people with migrant background usually face the feeling of being disinegrated: they know how difficult to find friends, get empowerment and actively participate in local community life.

However successful integration is a two-way process of mutual accommodation between disintegrated groups and their local society.

And in order to ensure this successful integration at least from one side we need to empower people who feel disintegrated to take initiative in this process!

The Aim of the Project

Gather 30 young people, those who face obstacles in the process of integration and those who would like to provide peer support, and using tools of non-formal education empower them to participate in social life of their comunities and collaborate with local people through event organization, thus ensuring the successful integration process.

WHAT will EventBees do?

 Gather for 7 days in a small town of Croatia in order to:

1. Experience national and multicultural dialogue.

2. Share their experience of integration/socialization and get support from peers.

3. Learn about event-management.

4. Practice it by organizing various creative events for peers and local community in Croatia.

5. Create and plan how to organize their own events in their home countries.

And of course Have Fun!
