The CONNECTION community of practice meets in Madrid

Representatives of 6 cities and the network EUROCITIES got together in Madrid on November 15-17, 2021, for the second workshop of the community of practice focusing on employment for migrants. Mardrid welcomed Tampere, Finland, Antwerp, Belgium, Sofia, Karditsa, Greece, and Brest, France, to get acquainted with their practices and engage in mutual learning with the support of Migration Work and the project lead partner EUROCITIES.

Project partners received direct impressions from the municipal/community lead integration and employment initiatives, as well as from the work of the regional employment agency and the various stakeholders.

Through action learning partners also assisted each other in refining their action plans for improving migrant employment perspectives.

In the framework of CONNECTION Sofia is piloting the Bureau for Information and Services for Third Country Nationals that was open in September this year, as an innovative way to unite resources and information flow for the benefit of foreign-born citizens.


CONNECTION project: CONNEcting Cities Towards Integration action, is co-funded by the European Union’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund.
