22:08REGIONAL CONGRESS Living Together Congress, Krakow, Poland, 4-6 March 2009
What is the Congress? The Congress is an international event which will bring together many young people who have been involved in Living Together, along with some new faces. We are looking for people who are ready to commit to working together to make a positive change in their own communities, and wider society.
The Congress will mix participants from countries with different experiences of migration, economic success and social integration or segregation. It will offer them an opportunity to share views and ideas with one another on what increasing mobility in wider Europe means for them and the societies in which they live, study and work. This event will enable young leaders from across Europe to explore key issues, form a network for activism, and work co-operatively in the interest of equality of opportunity in the future.
