Newsletter Evropského integračního portálu - č. 80

Níže naleznete dubnový newsletter Evropského integračního portálu. Z aktuálního obsahu bychom vás rádi upozornili na následující články:

Domenico Lucano, starosta jihoitalského městečka Riace, byl zařazen na prestižní žebříček 50 vrcholných světových leaderů, každoročně zveřejňovaný časopisem Fortune. Riace bylo podobně jako další odlehlá kalábrijská města postiženo odlivem obyvatelstva na sever Itálie. Když však před 18 lety k jeho břehům připlul člun plný kurdských uprchlíků, Lucano jim nabídl prázdné byty a rekvalifikace. Díky cizincům se podařilo oživit místní ekonomiku, počet obyvatel města se ztrojnásobil a Lucano je vnímán jako jeho zachránce a zároveň jako představitel jednoho z nejúspěšnějších integračních projektů v Itálii.  

Evropská komise zveřejnila výzvu k předkládání projektů v programu Creative Europe - Podpora integrace uprchlíků (EACEA/12/2016). Cílem výzvy je podpořit kulturní, audiovizuální a mezioborové projekty zaměřené na integraci uprchlíků do evropských společností, posílit vzájemné porozumění, mezikulturní a mezináboženský dialog. Termín pro podání grantových žádostí je 28. duben 2016.
