The CHAMPION project acts to strengthen the local business environment to align it with the needs of people with a migrant background. The project focuses on the concept of social entrepreneurship, which is considered vital for generating a positive impact on people and societies.
According to several studies, people with a migrant background have worse salaries and have a higher than average unemployment rate. In this framework, the COVID pandemic has not improved the economic situation but has increased the risk of marginalization and social exclusion for people with a migrant background.
Through the Champion project, we want:
To equip adults with a migrant background with knowledge, skills and competences
related to the design and creation of cultural heritage-based social enterprises or innovation initiatives.
Create social enterprises
based on cultural heritage and potential success stories.
Supporting adults with a migrant background
to transform the skills acquired during their training into practice.
