What have we been up to?

International Migrants Day 2020

This year the MAX project has participated in the International Migrants Day 2020, an occasion that tends to dismantle prejudices and raise awareness of migrants’ contributions in the economic, cultural, and social fields, for the benefit of both their country of origin and their country of destination!

The MAX project hosted a live event “Stories from MAX people” where we gave voice to two of our partners, PMF and BOOST, two different grass-root organizations in Warsaw and Amsterdam working with migrants.

The Belgian online DDF

On the 2nd and 3rd of December 2020, the European Professional Network organised the Belgian Diversity Dialogue Forum. 
The Belgian online DDF was composed of two online events: 

  • “How to maximise the potential of a diverse society? Challenges and opportunities in Belgium”. A panel discussion about the challenges and opportunities of migrant’s integration in Belgium.  
  • “Maximising integration in Belgium”. A counselling session addressed to migrants in Belgium. Participants were able to ask practical questions about their integration into the country and get counselling.

The Spanish online DDF

The Spanish online DDF “Contribution to the diversity of migrants in rural areas” took place on the 24th of November 2020.
The Diputación de Teruel highlighted the contribution of migrants to Teruel society and its concern for improving their public image, surrounded by distorted or directly false narratives.

Training on Solution Journalism in Autumn 2020

In the framework of the MAX project, The Local offered free training on migration reporting for student and early-career journalists in Autumn 2020. 
A number of 60 students have been introduced to solutions journalism methodology, explored how it can be applied to migration reporting, and have been walked through how to find, report, and write a story.

MAX project partners gathered remotely on 31 September, 1 & 2 October for a three-day workshop.

What is the MAX project?

MAX is an AMIF funded project whose aim is to change public attitudes towards migrants. The goal is to improve the public image of migrants in Europe by changing the narrative around the immigration discourse and sharing real stories of successful integration at the local level.  

Storytelling, creation of positive messages for the media and dialogic encounters between locals and newcomers are the key figures of the project.
