The main aim of the project “Finding grass-root solutions for refugee crisis in Europe” is to increase opportunities for quality partnerships among different stakeholders within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, on the topic of migration and refugees. The programme will provide a space for participants to build new partnerships and expand their network as well exchange good practices and experiences in the preparation and implementation of projects (new innovative methods and approaches). In addition, they will explore the possibilities and priorities of the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme in order to better understand the eligibility and quality criteria of the programme. This partnership building activity will take place in Brussels during the first week of June 2016, and its main objectives are to provide cooperation opportunities and new partnerships among different actors working on the topic of migration and refugees and to understand the basics of quality partnerships as well as to be able to develop the quality partnership on international level. Additionally, it seeks to encourage the development of the basis of the future common Erasmus+ project ideas tackling issues connected to migration and initiate and reinforce future cooperation between youth workers and other relevant stakeholders.
