The first and most important aim of the project is to create a channel of communication and information exchange in between migrants'a ssociations and civil society organisations dealing with migration and intercultural education, while at the same time engaging in raising public awareness on relevant issues, participating thus in the on-going public debate on migration, public space and intercultural education.
