SUMIGRE partner meeting in Sofia


Tuesday, April 9, 2019

The 5th Transnational SUMIGRE Meeting took place in Sofia between 5 and 6 March 2019, where the partners were welcomed by the Business Development Agency. 

The discussions were focused on the presentation and the launch of the e-Learning platform and the piloting of the Training Curriculum, as well as the translation of the Curriculum in all the project partners’ languages, the upcoming activities and the project evaluation so far. The upcoming Multiplier events will aim to raise awareness on the importance of supporting the professional development of the migrant-related educators and they will be addressed to representatives of public and private organisations, to school administrators and to policy makers with an interest in migration.  

Two guest speakers were invited to the meeting, Mrs. Azhar Alomar-Zlatkova, a leader of the Syrian community in Bulgaria, as well as a social worker and  a translator, and Mrs. Anna Andreeva, a social worker, supporting the integration of refugees and immigrants in Bulgaria, an evaluator of projects related to migration in the Bulgarian national authorities and a former Head of a department at the Bulgarian National Agency for Refugees. They gave an interesting insight into the process of accepting immigrants and refugees in Bulgaria after 2010 and about the specific measures, which have been adopted to support their integration.

The next and final SUMIGRE transnational meeting will take place in Budapest between 20 and 21 June 2019.

The third SUMIGRE newsletter about project activities performed in the last 5 months is available here. It includes a short summary of the last two transnational meetings and information on the training curriculum.
