The toolkit was initiated by the COMMEET Fellowship for Community Empowerment and developed with an international team of experts and practitioners in partnership with the London Regional Centre for Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
The toolkit provides a 10 point plan for community groups who wish to promote wellbeing and inclusion. Proposed activities address negative perceptions and stereotypes of migrants and offer ideas to support the challenges they face. Activities can be adapted for different regions and countries. Examples and stories from around the globe provide inspiration and encouragement for community self empowerment. Forced migration as a result of conflict, persecution, climate change, natural disaster or extreme poverty is now at unprecedented levels (UNHCR 2019). The world crisis over the Covid 19 virus has shown that there is a danger that some vulnerable communities can be sidelined or forgotten.
This webinar will discuss ways in which the toolkit can help communities to welcome and include migrants and displaced people. In doing so, it will demonstrate how this can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
