UN Millenium Development Goals
At ROME in ItalyIn 2006
By Architettura Senza Frontiere Italian Network in partnership with Arquitectos Sem Fronteiras - Portugal, Arquitectos Sin Fronteras España and Architecten Zonder Grenzen - Belgium
This is an international exchange project conceived to make young people sensible and to get them involved in themes related to the hosting and social inclusion of migrants in Europe. The exchange involves youths from different nations with the common aim to deepen the migrants’ integration, starting from the social and cultural context at national and European level faced with migration phenomena, researching the already existing good practices and identifying the role that civil society and youths can assume in the construction of a European society with a multicultural and hospitable vision.
One of the main project activities was a workshop that produced a Manifesto for the Interface named MIRA (Migration Interface for Reflection and Activism), which includes a series of media actions to extend the net by raising awareness and promoting an international dialogue. International partners are: ASF Spain, ASF Belgium and ASF Portugal.
