‘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.
