The aim of this event was to illustrate the pivotal role and daily challenges of civil society organisations in helping refugees and migrants. In doing so, the Diversity Europe Group wished to re-focus political attention on the topic and to offer a forum for civil society and EU Institutions to debate these issues in the context of EU recovery and reconstruction, post Covid-19. Following the concept of a “hybrid meeting”, the conference took place both online and at the premises of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in Brussels.
The event about environmental migration aims to provide an understanding of the challenges at hand and their impact, as well as proposing policy solutions. It will present projections for climate change and how this will force people to migrate, seek to define environmental displacement, paying attention to its current occurrence and providing estimates on its future. Emphasis will be on the legal protection gap, as environmental refugees are currently not covered by any international law.
The public hearing will focus on various aspects related to social and economic inclusion of third country nationals and will feature two panel debates and a speech. The first panel will focus on social inclusion of third country nationals. It will focus on the role of public services in integrating refugees and asylum seekers and on the importance of societies being welcoming towards newcomers. In the second panel, speakers will discuss various aspects related to the importance of skills to economic integration and will address discovering, mapping and further developing talents and skills in view of finding employment.
The event will focus on how the EU and its Member States can contribute to the implementation of the Global Compact for safe, orderly and regular migration. The first panel will cover the views of relevant institutional stakeholders on what can and should be done at European level. The second panel will focus on the role that social partners and civil society organisations can play in working towards achieving the compact's objectives.

The third edition of the Social Innovation for Refugee Inclusion seminar follows up from two previous events in 2016 and 2017. More than three years on from the peak period of arrivals to Europe, many countries are shifting from ‘crisis management’ towards long-term inclusion of migrant and refugee populations. This event aims to explore how innovations in living situations promote community-driven inclusion, overcoming divisions, facilitating economic opportunities, and fostering a sense of ‘home’.
The event is fully booked. No late registrations are possible.

The Social Economy Enterprise (SEE) model offers a framework for mobilising and enhancing newcomers' skills. SEEs facilitate the settlement and integration process for immigrants by providing them with employment or training and helping them with practical settlement support. Although they operate in different ways in different national contexts, Social Economy Enterprises have managed to define common principles of action – inclusive, subsidiary protection of the most disadvantaged people – taking a proactive approach to receiving migrants. In this way they have mobilised the relevant communities, activated networks and partnerships, and cooperated with central and local administrations to organise reception and integration processes.
