Call for applications: WSCF-E conference in Ireland

June 18th, 2017 4:32 pm

Is it possible for non-Europeans to integrate in Europe in such large numbers?
Is “our” security more important than “their” security?
Do migrants bring anything positive to society?

The WSCF-E is hosting a safe space for dialogue about these questions and more.

If you would like to be part of this dialogue, join us between 7-13 October 2017 in Kildare, Ireland for “(I)migrant: perspectives of minority integration in Europe”.

Young people from all over Europe will be gathering to sing, eat, pray and talk deeply about integration and community building.

During the programme, you will have the opportunity to participate in a series of workshops, lectures and small group discussions. This is aimed at creating mutual respect and enhancing understanding of topics such as: building and sustaining diverse communities, and how we can shape our future together

    Dear Kayleigh,

    Thank you for your interest in the conference.
    The event is aimed mostly at young people, particularly members of our Student Christian Movements. However, we have not imposed any strict age limit, and persons with first-hand experience of migration or experienced in working with migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, are very much welcome. Nevertheless, please be aware that the deadline to register for the conference has passed, unfortunately.

    Thank you!

    Kindest regards
