“Expressions in Dialogue” – Innovative youth work practices on refugee inclusion through Living Libraries

“Expressions in Dialogue” is a Strategic Partnership of organisations addressing the refugee cause from diverse realities in Europe to create innovative youth work tools for:

  • Supporting the inclusion of young migrants and refugees strengthening the sense of belonging to the hosting communities.
  • Mainstreaming intercultural dialogue and de-construct prejudices through the
    implementation of Living Library actions.

The project proposes to work for, with and by youth migrants and refugees together with youth workers from diverse communities around Europe to develop innovative practices on refugee inclusion through human rights education and Living Library methodologies.

These days, 9-16 of February, the Capacity building training course, as part of this project, takes place in Tallinn. The Capacity Building is specially addressed to the team members responsible for implementing the Living Library actions in each partner-country in frames of the “Expressions in Dialogue” project.

At the training course, the national teams of partner-organisations gain competences in preparation implementation and evaluation of the Living Library event.

But not only that. The educational part of the training course provides knowledge, skills and and develops attitudes of participants in Intercultural learning and social inclusion, which is very important for the work back home dealing with the human books, facilitators, librarians and everyone involved in the running of the Living Libraries.

After implementation of the Living Libraries by the partner-organisations, the participants will meet again in Barcelona in autumn to share their experiences, their work as teams and create materials for the common web platform focusing on practices of inclusive youth work. Living Library will be presented as well there as one of the tools for inclusion of young migrants and refugees.

MTÜ Trajectorya (Estonia) 
- the leading coordinator

Young Effect Association (Italy)

AHEAD – Association of Human Rights Educators (Catalonia/Spain) 

House of Europe in Rhodes (Greece)
