Supporting meaningful Occupations for low-qualified Migrants, Refugees, and Asylum seekers using the Green Entrepreneurship Model - SOMRA

The SOMRA project offers an innovative approach to tackle two major challenges of the 21st century, namely climate change and refugee crises, by engaging refugees, asylum seekers and low-qualified migrants in meaningful occupations that transform them into environment role models with a sustainable impact in their new and previous home. The main idea of the SOMRA approach is to enable these main target groups to become true factors of change that influence positive environmental habits that are first established on a local and regional level, and eventually even beyond the borders of the EU.

Therefore, the SOMRA project will pursue the following objectives:

  • Facilitating environmental change on local and regional level through grassroots activities organised by green NGOs and the SOMRA participants
  • Fostering common values and civic engagement of migrant communities in their new environment
  • Offering low-threshold learning opportunities related to environmental measures that increase the employability by strengthening key competences for low-qualified migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
