CITIES-GROW (2017-2019)

CITIES GROW worked towards enhancing mutual learning between cities and improving the implementation of migration policies through concrete actions to facilitate the integration of migrants and refugees.

CITIES GROW provided city-to-city support through tailored mentoring schemes in four specific areas:

A. Matching buyers and suppliers: access to public and private contracts for immigrant entrepreneurs

B. Promoting appropriate migrant participation in local labour markets through partnerships

C. Services to promote and support migrant entrepreneurs

D. Anti-discrimination strategies for the local job market

CITIES GROW TOOLKITS

Four new Integrating Cities toolkits were published in November 2018, similar to those published for the Implementoring project in 2014 and the MIXITIES project in 2012, which have proved extremely successful with cities, NGOs and the European Commission.

These toolkits collected good examples of how EUROCITIES members work in the field of migration & integration and more specifically in on the following topics:

 

Matching buyers and suppliers: access to public and private contracts for immigrant entrepreneurs Promoting appropriate migrant participation in local labour markets through partnerships Services to promote and support migrant entrepreneurs Anti-discrimination strategies for the local job market
