The project, which will start in September 2018, will continue for a year and at the end of the project, a stakeholder meeting will be held with decision-makers, NGO representatives and young people.
HOW IT IS MADE?
The Let’s Talk About Us project will continue between September 2018 and September 2019. Young people from Turkey and refugee/refugee youth will meet at thematic meetings every month. 10 young people from Turkey and 10 young refugees/asylum seekers will attend these meetings, they will exchange ideas about their problems and solutions, and at the end of each meeting, they will choose the topic of the next meeting. The meetings are open to the participation of other young people. This meeting requires the active participation of young people in group activities. In order to facilitate the meeting, a moderator and a reporter will be present at the meeting. In addition, social activities will be held with these 20 young people at regular intervals. At the stakeholder meeting to be held at the end of the project, the results, problems and solution proposals obtained in one year will be shared with the representatives of various institutions.
