It was our pleasure to organize and attend conference “Together – Youth from the Local Community for Refugees” that was organized by PIN with Njuz.net. During the conference, students from five schools and youth from the refugee population presented their ideas on the role local communities can provide in supporting refugees, as well as ideas on reducing prejudice toward the refugee population. This conference present the completion of the project “Together – Engaging Local Communities to Foster Cross-Cultural Social Cohesion” implemented in cooperation with Oxfam Italia and through European Union Support to Migration Management in the Republic of Serbia.
The students expressed great empathy, motivation and willingness to support peers from the refugee community. We enjoyed their presentations and we can’t wait to see in action ideas presented during the conference!
