Building on the idea that cities should be inclusive and open, offering spaces for all residents to connect, participant and collaborate with each other and with policy-makers, MILE will set up two Europe-wide platforms in 2023. With the aim to promote in particular the collaboration among European migrant communities and municipalities as well as other local stakeholders working on migration and inclusion issues, these networks can be the backbone for future collaboration and exchange around migration, inclusion, and participation. As such, the networks will provide an opportunity for its members to exchange experiences with each other on challenges and best practices, thus empowering each other and building stronger links.
Activities foreseen include the regular exchange, both offline and in-person between partners, the sharing of knowledge and best practices, joint communication and campaigning activities as well as mutual support for activities and projects
Members can benefit from the platform by sharing and exploring tools for inclusive policy-making, can receive guidance and input from other municipalities and experts, explore new solutions for inclusive policy-making together, showcase their own initiatives at a European scale and get feedback, save resources and become more effective and efficient in advancing migrant inclusion and participation.
The platforms are currently in the design phase. If you are interested in joining the platform for cities and local stakeholders, please contact email@example.com.
