Social inclusion of all young people, including those from a migrant background, is a key aim of the EU Youth Strategy (2010-2018). Youth work and non-formal learning can contribute to encouraging intercultural dialogue and building mutual understanding between new arrivals and the receiving communities. The Erasmus+ programme in the field of youth promotes fairness and inclusion for participants from disadvantaged backgrounds and with fewer opportunities (such as migrants or refugees) through specific support, priority setting and targeted use of funds. The BPE project financed under the Key Action 3 intends to develop and share non-formal education methodologies and new inclusion practices through the youth work, with a view to promoting the integration and social inclusion of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants and to foster understanding, tolerance and respect among people.
