YOUTH2YOUTH SERIES

Youth2Youth-Denmark

Introduction to the Project:

Between January and June 2016, Crossing Borders through funding from Europa Nævnet, implemented 14 school workshops and debates about the refugee crisis. The background of this project was that; we find it an urgent need for wider youth engagement on the current refugee/immigrant crisis that EU and particularly Denmark faces. This crisis has brought out some of the most controversies and disagreement in Denmark as well as in many EU countries. It is causing many local EU society segments to fear immigrants, leading to intolerance, increased stereotyping and homophobic behavior. The position of Denmark as a member of the EU is coming in question, not only by other EU members but also by segments of the country’s local population.

Hence, along with our partners Skolen I Virkeligheden and Fredensborg Kommune, we through a series of 14 workshops in different gymnasiums, trained around 900 students on the role of the EU, as well facilitating them with tools to engage and debate on the issue with the wider public. This project concluded on the 30th June 2016. You are welcome to read more about the project in the embedded report below.
