The main objective of the project is to raise the capacity of refugee and migrant youth by using the gamification and entrepreneurship which will lead to their inclusion into the society.

As we live on a crossroad where humanitarian and social support to each other is highly needed. So as a public university within our partners, we want to take part in the solution and support young refugees and migrants’ social inclusion, in the meantime raising awareness among the young people of hosting countries. Only in Turkey, there are over 3 million refugees and most of the time young people in Europe are not aware enough of this issue. So we would like to make a change on both for refugee youth and youth of hosting countries.The main objective of our project is to raise refugee and migrants’ capacity is that they can be more active in the solution of social problems, take initiatives and be social entrepreneurs of future. Finally, to support the social inclusion of refugees and migrants. Besides the main objective, we also want to reach such goals within the project:
