THEATER TOOLS FOR DRAMATIC SITUATIONS is a training course that brings together 34 participants and 5 experts from 17 European countries. Activities will take place in Sarata Monteoru and Buzau from February 2—10, 2022.
The context in which the project takes place stands out by increasing the number of migrants in Europe and the outbreak of the worst post-World War II crisis. Terrorist attacks in recent years have lowered the acceptance of allogeneic populations and increased the risk of integration to 42% in the EU. Resident populations are reluctant, fears, hatred and xenophobia migrant groups are increasingly appearing into intolerance, discrimination, street protests, while some parties legitimate their sentiments in nationalist extremist programs and actions that generate success among a part of the population and an unclear position in the media.
The aim of the project is to improve the professional activity of youth workers in Europe in educating young people and civil society for a better social integration of migrants
- raising for 34 youth workers from 17 countries awareness of the importance of cultural diversity,equal opportunities and anti-hate discourse in developing their capacity for social integration of migrants in the community
