As part of its new global youth strategy, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) intends to implement new tools. Because of its expertise in the field, SAD has been engaged by the IOC to carry out a feasibility study for the planned tools. In this study, SAD explores recommendations for effectiveness and implementation, and where necessary, suggests possible alternatives.
“Integration through sport in Hungary”: an approach which SAD developed for Switzerland will also be implemented in Hungary
- Created on Tuesday, 04 March 2014 17:05
Hungary’s migration and integration policy is extremely defensive. At the same time, the country is struggling with a continual decrease in population, an aging population and economic stagnation. Legal immigration and effective integration measures could reverse these trends. This is why SAD, and local partners Szubjektiv and Utopia, launched the pilot project “Integration through sport in Hungary”. The active integration of migrants in local sports clubs should help them find their feet in their new country, and make the host country more open and tolerant towards new arrivals.
“conTAKT-net.ch”: SAD has joined forces with Migros Culture Percentage in a project that uses websites as an integration tool
- Created on Tuesday, 04 March 2014 16:57
The support programme “conTAKT-net.ch” was launched by Migros Culture Percentage. It provides communes, towns, regions and cantons with a set of tools for building websites around the topic of integration. The authorities’ web platforms should include practical everyday information for people who are new to the area, whether they are from a migrant background or not. In a participative process intercultural teams develop and maintain information pages that fit local needs. Through the participative approach sustainability and utility of the websites can be increased significantly. In this way, the project promotes integration in communes and contributes to the quality of intercultural integration.
