« We, young Spanish, Slovene, French and Greek ambassadors of the European Project «Sharing Is Caring – Refugees» are asking you to help us to combat the stereotypes that exist about refugees.
We propose you to participate in a contest to imagine «informational boxes» which will contain life stories, information about the situation of the refugees in Europe and exchanges offers between refugees and local people.
Because the refugees are also rich in skills, good will and desire to make themselves useful !
Informational boxes must be able to be self-made at minimal cost with tools commonly used by volunteers from the refugee associations that will put them into service.
That’s why we want them to be based on a simple European palette materials !
We will select one candidate per participating country by means of a public vote on this website.
Another winner will be selected for each country by a jury of representative people.
In each partner country, we will display the 3D models of the winning projects through an exhibition.
We will also publish a catalog presenting all the projects.
Finally, we have a small budget to invite the young laureates (compulsory, aged between 18 and 30) who wish to present their creations personally in Barcelona in June and in Larissa in September 2017.
We hope to help this way to improve the reception of newly arrived refugees in Europe.
Do your part ! »
