The conference is divided into two thematic areas dedicated to media as a tool for integration of migrants and their coexistence in multinational locations. The conference takes place within the projects Media4Me and Media4us carried out by the Multicultural Center Prague with financial support of the European Integration Fund for the third countries nationals and the US Embassy in Prague.
With this conference, the Multicultural Center Prague continues its series of activities focused on the support of migrants’ integration and development of positive relations among minorities and the Czech society.
The first day of the conference will focus on questions of migrants’ involvement in the host societies in the territory of the Czech Republic, Europe and the United States. The organizers want to discuss possibilities of their active involvement in society, in particular through media.
The second day of the conference will be dedicated to the need and support of social cohabitation and multicultural dialogue at the local level in multicultural city areas. Social media will be presented as one of the tools for support of social cohesion and enhancement of quality of life among inhabitants of multicultural areas. At the same time, they help to improve the image of these areas.
