SEN-CIT: The sensitization of citizens in the field of immigrants' and refugees’
inclusion to the hosting society (Exchange of good practices in adult education)


The integration of migrants into host societies is one of the leading challenges and priorities of the European Union and its Member States. The rapidly growing inflow of refugees from war-ravaged countries over the last decade has exacerbated the integration and inclusion challenges for most of EU member states, and has tested the capacity of local infrastructures and service provision agencies.

The partner organizations have recognized the need to develop a project that can act as a catalyst for sensitizing local communities and migrant/refugee communities to remove prejudice and mistrust and open opportunities for intercultural exchange, cooperation and interaction.

The central aim of the project is to develop and pilot sensitization strategies and tools for migrant integration, addressed to the hosting societies, through the exchange of good practices and models. The plan is to educate and empower educators, professionals and volunteers who are actively involved in the field of implementing migrant/refugee integration policy at the local level, who will then become facilitators of the sanitization strategies.
