The 3rd Seminar of MEET Project


We participated in the 3rd seminar of our KA1 project: "MEET: Training of Adult Educators Concerned with Refugees". The main topic of the event was displacement of people and the trauma it results in. The presenter, Mr Bektas Kocyigit participated in several rehabilition programs for the victims of various disastrous events in Turkey. The seminar focused mainly on more than 3.5 million Syrian refugees in our country and various problems they are faced with. Mr Kocyigit emphasized that social integration requires efforts not only on refugees' part but local communities should also display willingness and make efforts to embrace these people.

A future seminar will be dedicated to pathways to solutions.
