Presentation of the CLARINET project

The ECCAR has a strategic partner role in the project CLARINET.

The project CLARINET - Communication of Local Authorities for Integration in European Towns, is a EU-funded initiative within the AMIF funds - Grant Agreement number 821562.

CLARINET aims to raise awareness among EU citizens of the contribution migrants make to their societies. The project intends to:

  1. identify and promote the good practices of local authorities in public communication campaigns and activities on migration and integration at EU level;
  2. empower local border authorities to implement successful evidence-based public communication campaigns on migration and integration through on-the-job training and support.

The project will:

  • Develop the “European Award for local authorities’ public communication campaigns on migration and integration”;
  • Produce the “Positive Storytelling Kit on Migration and Integration for Local Authorities”;
  • Implement 8 training programmes for Local Authorities looking at how to talk about migration and integration in their local territories;
  • Set up 8 residences for artists within the territories involved;
  • Design and promote 8 communication campaigns on migration carried out by the Local Authorities involved.

The CLARINET project is led by the Municipality of Lampedusa and Linosa, which collaborates with a multi stakeholder partnership composed of 7 other Local Authorities located in border areas (border LAs), 9 Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) based in 8 EU countries, and 2 international networks.

We would like to share with you this new opportunity: the CLARINET European Award for public communication campaigns on migration and integration carried out by local authorities. The CLARINET Award intends to promote and give value to successful, impactful campaigns and communication activities carried out by, or on behalf of, local authorities, and which show how migration in Europe can benefit our societies.
Applications for the CLARINET Award are open until 31st July 2019 (Midnight).
