Project complete, from May 2015 to January 2018

What is it about?

‘Amitie Code’ mobilised citizen support for development cooperation and more equal relations between developed and developing countries, by raising their sense of belonging to an interdependent world. It increased awareness about the relevance of Africa’s development for Europe. “Amitie Code” highlighted causes of migration, such as climate change, conflicts and human rights abuses. It also pointed to consequences, including positive changes to the demographics of European cities. The project trained civil servants and teachers, developed local action plans and involved migrant associations in their work.

What changes does this project inspire?

“Amitie Code” increased the awareness of EU citizens and local authorities of how development cooperation is a key driver to address global challenges and the interdependence of local communities. More skilled EU teachers, civil servants and migrant associations built innovative local alliances around global issues and migration. They jointly developed practices to activate the migration and development nexus and strengthen relevant local policies. Finally, the project engaged students and other young people to promote human rights and sustainable ways of living.
