The third edition of the Social Innovation for Refugee Inclusion seminar follows up from two previous events in 2016 and 2017. More than three years on from the peak period of arrivals to Europe, many countries are shifting from ‘crisis management’ towards long-term inclusion of migrant and refugee populations. This event aims to explore how innovations in living situations promote community-driven inclusion, overcoming divisions, facilitating economic opportunities, and fostering a sense of ‘home’.
During that event, the H2020 SIMRA project, in which Euromontana is involved, will present some case studies of the project linked to refugee integration in rural communities.
- Panel I: ‘Creating Home? Housing as a gateway to integration’
- Breakout Session I
- Co-Housing: Does Inclusion Start in Shared Homes?
- Beyond Employment: Social Inclusion through Professional Life
- Urban Planning for Refugee Inclusion
- Community-driven Innovation: kitchens and living rooms as sites of inclusion
- Private citizens for refugees: private sponsorship
- Panel II: ‘Innovative cities and rural communities.’
- Interactive Discussion: ‘Holistic Homes: Addressing vulnerabilities, gender issues, and mental wellbeing’
- Breakout Session II
- Defining Success: how to measure and define what works
- Innovative Financing
- Innovative Partnerships
- First Reception as a launchpad of integration
- Housing beyond status
