Abstract

The Action intends to capitalize on the research, training and communication results of the AMITIE project (Awareness raising on MIgrations, developmenT and human rIghts through local partnErships) and on the successful experiences of development cooperation between European and African cities, to ensure the commitment of European local governments and to strengthen the European citizens’ engagement in the post-2015 development agenda, through informal/non-formal education and participatory visibility actions. The focus on the migration and development nexus and on partners’ experiences of cooperation between Europe and Africa intends to ensure the Action’s effectiveness by linking the development objectives to the visible causes and consequences of migrations, such as climate change, human rights concerns or the demographic change in European cities.
