GEYC supports ”Knowing, understanding and acting” - a training course organized by AMSED from 4th to 14th May, in Lviv, Ukraine on the topic of forced migration at European level.
The general objective of this TC is to train and inform representatives of NGO’s, youth and social workers, as well as leaders of youth projects, of knowledge and tools linked to intercultural projects, allowing the understanding and analysis of the realities and practices concerning the matter of forced migration along with issues concerning refugees and gender issues in the trans-European (European Union, South East Europe, Oriental Europe and Caucasus) and Mediterranean countries.
