23 mar B1-AKT crafts for change with SONU

B1-AKT is proud to announce the partnership with SONU – Sorbonne pour l’Organisation des Nations Unies.

Crafting for Change is a project from the Development Division from Sorbonne for the United Nations Organisation SONU. This project aims to help communities in distress through the development of craftsmanship.

In order to achieve this, three workshops linking design students and craftsmen take place, two in Argentina and one in France. In Paris, refugee craftsmen are currently working with design students from The SorbonneUniversity.

Later this year an exhibition will take place showing the work from the three workshops where the public will be able to appreciate our craftsmen’s work and will be able to purchase some of the pieces.

The aim of it all is to create a positive image for these communities, refugees and rural craftsmen in order to enhance their social and economic integration into society.

Special thanks to Natalia Baudoin.

14 oct How Migrant Entrepreneurship could shape Good Long-Term Economic Growth of Europe

Umesh Mukhi, Founding Director, Sustainable Leadership Initiative,

The migrant crisis has been one of the most prominent issues faced by European Union. I think its crucial to find change-makers who are trying to create significant social impact by training migrants to become competitive work force for EU. I had a chance to meet Yannick Le Guern & Laura Petrache and ask them few questions about their initiative MIGRANT INTEGRATION LAB which aims to resolve such complex issue. I hope readers would be able to draw some inspiration and insights to follow their path.

  • The project seems to be very unique, can you share with us about what were the key motivators to pursue Migrant Lab?

Yes, indeed it actually is and not seems to be . As I encountered some of the issues that migrants are encountering now days and after an experience in Syrian ground, I wanted to build together with Yannick the co-founder of MIGRANT INTEGRATION LAB, a global European device permitting the sustainable integration of migrants and ethnic minorities. For us a welcoming culture is one that contributes by helping migrants, newcomers and their families overcome obstacles in all areas of life, while also providing business start-up assistance and targeted employment. This is why we facilitate and foster economic and social integration of migrants by supporting them in the development of new business initiatives.

CMA life long learning B1-AKT Sustainable Strategies Petrache Le Guern 1

 « B1-AKT  teams-up with CMA in order to build 1000 learning territories world-wide»

 

www.cma-lifelonglearning.org

The original goal that led to the creation of the World Committee, stemmed from the observation that the lifelong learning concept had evolved in the 1990s from a recommendation to a necessity, owing to the advent of the Knowledge Society, in which the sharing of knowledge and skills are a key factor.

CMA is an international NGO in active partnership with UNESCO. They all share a strong determination to contribute to a harmonious development of the lifelong learning sector.
The World Committee was created in 2004 by a team of French, Chinese, North-American and Quebec professionals.

 « Tribune pour une véritable politique européenne d’intégration des migrants »

Quelques semaines après le démentellement de la jungle de calais, les questions de fond ne sont toujours pas résolues, faute d’avoir été posées, … et surtout entendues par les pouvoirs publics.

Sur le terrain, les associations font du mieux qu’elles peuvent pour répondre à des situations de crises, d’urgence permettant de pallier l’indigence et la honte du non-accueil des réfugiés politiques, ou économiques.

Néanmoins, à l’instar des institutions, Ministère de l’Intérieur, OFII, OFPRA, …  elles sont dépassées. (suite…)
