The aim of the project is to bring together a small group of various plurinational participants: young people (50% with fewer opportunities), young refugees and professional adult guides who possess a know-how on technical subjects, social issues and communication following the general theme of living together.
The project consortium would like to take part in helping the local populations accept and adapt to the influx of refugees as well as contribute to the integration of the newly arrived to local societies by introducing Givebox concepts in communities that host refugees. A Givebox (with a motto of “sharing is caring”) is usually set up as an object (a cupboard, a shelf, a refrigerator, a specially conceived structure, etc.) that hosts donations from people who want anonymously share their unwanted objects with anybody in need instead of throwing these away. A Givebox would be a place where help can come in material shape (physical donations) or be dematerialized – offering for example language courses, services that enhance integration, entertainment programs, etc.
One of the goals is to develop one (or several) multi-functional Givebox concept(s) that could be freely used once the project is over.
