This event was co-organized by JEF-Europe and JEF-Greece with the support of the European Youth Foundation.

The seminar was dedicated to the problem of refugees and European migrant crisis. During three days of active work, the participants – young activists from more than 20 countries all over the European continent – were searching for the solutions of the current problems with migrants, integration of refugees into European community and the promotion of tolerance and mutual aid in society.

The seminar was based on the principles of non-formal education: the participants were involved in active discussions in form of debates during their teamwork as well as had an opportunity to hear the thoughts of European and Greek activists, which are working with the refugee problem. Besides, the participants were introduced to the potential of fundraising and the European Youth Foundation with an aim of carrying out their own campaigns and realization of projects.

Ukraine was represented by the administrative director of NGO ‘Poruch’Vladyslav Dementiev, and the leader of the initiative group JEF UkraineAnastasia Chernova. They have shared their knowledge on the situation of internally displaced persons in Ukraine, which, according to the official statistics, are nowadays more than 1,7 million people. It has to be mentioned, that this problem did not leave European activists indifferent. Moreover, the experience of NGO ‘Poruch’ in support of the stabilization of Donbas communities and integration of IDPs into new societies was represented during the seminar.

Therefore, the seminar has demonstrated that only the coordination between the youth leaders across European countries can lead to the solving of the refugee problem and the establishment of constructive dialogue between representatives of different political views.
