CONNECTION (2020-2022)

Led by Eurocities, the network of major cities in Europe, CONNECTION – CONNEcting Cities Towards Integration actiON – promotes transnational learning on and implementation of integration policies.

Cities taking part in this project exchange best practices and develop policy guidelines for a wider audience on the four following themes/communities of practice:

A. How to develop a strategic approach to integration, participation and interaction?

B. How to build a gender dimension into integration policies?

C. How to build pathways to employment for migrant?

D. How to design one-stop-shops as an integrated response to integration needs?

Seven participating cities which are less experienced in integration are not only developing action plans with the support of the other participating cities but are also receiving grants and support to implement a new integration scheme in their own context. In addition, eight more experienced cities will have one staff member trained as an ‘integration ambassador’ with the capacity to autonomously train other cities in integration policies beyond the lifetime of the project.

CONNECTION will have therefore a greater positive impact on the lives of migrants and locals living together in European cities than any preceding project.
