Location: Basel (Switzerland)
International exchange among participative projects of young migrants
19. – 20. November 2016, Basel (Switzerland)
The participation project for separated minor asylum-seekers Speak out! invites to an inter-national meeting with participative projects in Europe working with and for young migrants. The aim of the meeting is to exchange among different projects on how to strengthen the voi-ces of young migrants in Europe.
Speak out! is a project of the Swiss National Youth Council (SAJV/CSAJ). SAJV/ CSAJ is the umbrella organisation of more than 60 youth and the main lobbying body for youth in Swit-zerland. Speak out! exists since 2010 as a project for separated minor asylum-seekers. 2014 a Charta was elaborated by the project participants. Since 2016 an additional Speak out! pro-ject for young irregular migrants was initiated. More information on the SAJV/ CSAJ and Speak out! activities: www.sajv.ch/en/
