The "Education, empowerment, integration - inspiration!" conference will be held on Tuesday 5 October at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Institute in Zagreb.
The conference is being organised by the Jesuit Refugee Service - JRS, Initiative - Centre for Education and Vocational School - Institution for Adult Education, and the programme will include the final presentation of the "Education for Better Integration of Asylum Beneficiaries" project. The main goal of this project was to increase the employability of refugees through the development and implementation of programmes for linguistic and cultural integration, individual mentoring and professional training programmes for occupations in the tourism and hospitality sector.
The conference will also include a presentation from a project by the European offices of the JRS, "CHANGE: think, meet, act, change!". This project encourages the inclusive education of primary and secondary school students and the development of critical thinking around the contribution of migrants and refugees to society, through meeting with young migrants and refugees who share the same inclusive goals. The conference will therefore be an opportunity to meet refugees involved in both projects, employers and schools that have participated, and numerous stakeholders in the field of integration and education.
