INCLUDATE (Educating for Inclusion)
is a project developed in the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme. The actions of INCLUDATE are planned to actively further the Erasmus Strategy for Inclusion and Diversity. The project outcomes and results aim directly at the inclusion of people with fewer opportunities, specifically migrants, which are prone to intersectional marginalisation through a combination of ethnic discrimination and social-economic deprivation.
The project identifies the need for capacity building that enables migrant associations to get involved in the inclusion and diversity strategies. Considered from the initiation and needs assessment via the plan of action and coalition making the implementation.
Communication and cooperation between local municipalities, migrant residents and migrant associations require intercultural capacities and target-group specific methods from both the public policy-making bodies and the migrant associations.
By combining municipal and migrant community actors from different national contexts and city sizes, we have joined a wide spectrum of knowledge, experiences and perspectives on inclusion and diversity in European cities. The localities of Berlin, Germany; Gdansk, Poland; Copenhagen, Denmark; Palermo, Italy; Budapest, Hungary represent a variety of sizes and contexts but share common goals and challenges.
The Project is 33 months long, from January 2022 to October 2024.
