To promote transparent and open-flow communication on issues related to human rights protection and social inclusion, e. To empower young migrants and refugees in designing and implementing workshops in order to promote protection, participation and youth development, f. To inform young refugees and migrants about European mobility and education/ development opportunities and promote their integration through supporting their involvement, g. To support the inclusion of participants with fewer opportunities in mobility projects.
