working group 1
Through visits, interviews and collaboration with people in Sweden and across Europe, A World of Neighbours engages grassroots actors accompanying ‘people on the move‘. Gathering in working groups, practitioners get to know each other, building bridges of understanding between people, cultures and religions.
The first working group met in Scotland, in March 2019, addressing receiving communities.
Time to share and offer support
Many faith-based actors are deeply involved in helping ‘people on the move‘ to find their place in their new communities. While their collective knowledge is essential, practitioners nevertheless often feel isolated and in need of sharing and support, while the nature of their work is constantly changing over time – from responding to immediate needs, to enabling equal participation in society.
By sharing best practices A World of Neighbours network strengthens community resilience and envisions a society where we live side by side.
