Human Libraries and Mutual Recognition

Every Story(Teller) Matters

About us

Every Story(Teller) Matters – Human Libraries and Mutual Recognition” is a project designed to address multiple facets of intercultural development. With a primary focus on empowering young migrants, the project aims to equip them with the necessary tools to overcome cultural exclusion. Simultaneously, the initiative seeks to sensitize local communities, fostering a deeper understanding of what it means to live in an intercultural society. Another pivotal aspect of the project involves enhancing the capacity of youth workers and educators in promoting the inclusion of migrants within their professional contexts. To achieve these objectives, the project will implement a diverse range of activities, including mobility programs for both youth workers and young participants, human libraries at the local level, dissemination events, and webinars tailored for both youth workers and young individuals. The expected outcomes of the project include the creation of 42 “Human Books,” an action research initiative, and the development of a Digital Platform for Human Libraries in Youth Work. By cultivating dialogue between diverse cultures and emphasizing the importance of communication spaces, the project aspires to contribute to a more inclusive and interconnected society, fostering a positive impact on individuals and communities alike.

Early Care International, based in Denmark, serves as the project coordinator for this collaborative initiative.
