The MILE project, an EU-funded initiative promoting the political participation and local inclusion of migrants and refugees, in collaboration with the European Parliament, is inviting civil society actors, policymakers and communicators to an event exploring how collaboration and community engagement can help make civic engagement and political participation more inclusive and accessible to all. Through three interactive sessions with speakers from civil society, politics and research, we will exchange ideas on how to promote the political participation of underrepresented groups at the local, national and European level
