Project at a glance:
According to the European motto “united in diversity”, the project FromMeToEU aims to provide opportunities for European citizens and Migrants’ communities to work together, in order to promote a new idea of a multicultural Europe. The idea we support is that every migrant should be considered as a Citizen and every Citizen has some needs but, at the same time, should bring ideas and innovative approaches to the community in which he lives. Far from an idea of thoughtfulness, FromMetoEu will then insist on requirement and selflessness, both based on mutuality.
The project will provide Citizens with a pathway of awareness to highlight the positive potential of solidarity in time of crisis. With a proactive approach, oriented to peer to peer methodology and practical need, FromMeToEu will lead Citizens to maximize social collaboration, at the same time combating scepticism in Refugees reception programmes (and Euroscepticism’s too) and reducing racism, by offering sustainable solutions for common issues involving Citizens and Migrants.

The articulates in 3 phases
