Follow-up event in Poland
On May 1st, 2019 I, as a member of Inicjatywa Obywatelska WITAJ, conducted a lecture about migration, refugee issues and cultural diversity. It was organised during the Erasmus+ project called „Murals of tolerance” in Frydrychowice, which gathered youth from Poland, Finland, Armenia and Georgia. We discussed the topics such as reasons for migration, legal status of the refugees, legal background for the help they are entitled to, problems they experience, and much more. We also talked about issues such as racism, nationalism, xenophobia and the paradox of muslimless islamophobia in European states. To finish with, we thought of the ways to build and cherish a healthy multicultural society and prevent hate crimes and prejudice. The participants mentioned the positive aspects of migration and cultural diversity.
