A Mile in My Shoes Towards More Inclusive Society

Praxis took part in a discussion within the international youth training „A MILE IN MY SHOES: tools for fighting discrimination and building more inclusive society“, taking place in Belgrade from 5-14 March, organized through cooperation of Portuguese NGO Agora Aveiro and Serbian NGO Klub Putnika, and financed by Erasmus+.

The training gathered around 20 young people coming from Serbia, Greece, Macedonia, Hungary and Portugal, with the aim to build up the knowledge and offer various perspectives on one of the biggest crisis of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers since the World War Two. Furthermore, at the same time the purpose of the training has been to motivate and encourage young participants to come up with different ideas and tools for actions which would foster social inclusion and promote anti-discriminatory values.

During the discussion, we shared some of our experiences acquired through the field work related to refugees’ and asylum seekers’ protection and basic humanitarian assistance. If you would like to better understand the concept of “a mile in my shoes” and get a closer insight into the experiences of the refugees, migrants and asylum seekers, you are welcome to join the final part of the training, a public event called “A Living Library” which will take place in KC Grad on Saturday, 12 March, from 16h to 18h.
