Innovative practices and joint urban initiatives to foster the integration of migrant women in the receiving society within urban agriculture practices

employment

Around 25 million persons born in a third country nation (TCNs) are currently living in the European Union (EU), representing 5% of its total population.These immigrants actively contribute to the economic, social and cultural development of European societies. Their successful integration into the host society is the key to maximising the opportunities of legal migration and making the most of the contributions that immigration can make to EU development. Although the EU is not responsible for integration, it provides support for national and local policies with policy coordination, exchange of knowledge and financial support.

In this framework, the project will implement concrete initiatives fostering the integration of migrant women, including asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection, in the receiving society within urban agriculture practices, including educational and recreational activities, vocational training, help to access to the labour market, anti-discrimination projects and cultural initiatives that promote inter-cultural dialogue and a culture of welcoming communities.
