Green Perspectives on Migration, Changing the Narrative of Migration Debating the issues. My life according to me
Following our successful project last year about, Implications and opportunities for Green Activism to Foster Integration and successful outcomes from long and short term tools and methods, this year we approach the current Narratives of Migration and question the assumptions being made in the media and film. We notice that successful cities are often those with the largest migrant populations.
Migration has been portrayed as a contemporary European Crisis and a Crisis of the EU but migration has been a key feature of Europe for thousands of years. Climate scientists & economists warned that this would accelerate as global warming starts to erode crops & habitats, with sea level rise diminishing available land & desertification drives change, e.g. Syria. It is therefore no surprise that these stresses have led to geo political instability.
Greens foster integration and work hard to create new and vibrate new communities and societies whilst these changes are occurring. We examine important pathways to integration and innovations in the Refugee Journey. We continue exploring new ways to look at migration and launch a Film Festival where migrants will be speaking later in the year on film about their lives themselves.
Experts, Policy Makers & Specialist Speakers include: Dr Sushilla Dhall, Manager at The Refugee Resource Centre: Dr Hans Kare Flo Tekna Technical Trade Union Head of Research from Norway: Danika Formosa from the Ceratona Green Institute (Malta) ; Professor Guy Standing, an expert on today’s European Workplaces and global shifts in production and labour (Switzerland)), and author of several books: Specialist Migration Lawyer Dr Lavinia Tezza (Italy), with Green Experts & Policy Makers working in the field and 1st 2nd & 3rd Generation Refugees. This project will film interviews with experts and migrants to make a record of the new narratives and try to create a more balanced and useful debate and atmosphere. With economic migrants from various other countries.
