BAKU German community integration project wins UN intercultural innovation award

Transportation denied, refugees remain determined and unstoppable Stranded for days at Budapest’s main railway station as the Hungarian Government cancelled all trains to Germany and shut its borders to Western Europe, hundreds of mostly Syrian refugees, many of whom had already purchased train tickets, set out to walk the 250 kilometres (155 miles) to Vienna. UNHCR/Mark Henley Three years after its inception, Give Something Back to Berlin – or GSBTB – is now well-known in Europe. It was declared the winner during an award ceremony as part of the Global Forum Baku 2016, held in the Azerbaijani capital and convened by the UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC). The Forum, which officially opened earlier today, is bringing together nearly 3,000 participants, including Heads of State and Government, political officials, civil society representatives, religious and youth leaders, who will share their perspectives and solutions under the main theme on ‘Living Together in Inclusive Societies: A Challenge and A Goal.’ “The refugee crisis we have been seeing lately actually created a unique opportunity to build a new culture of living together,” Annamaria Olsson, founder of GSBTB, said upon receiving the Intercultural Innovation Award, which was created in 2011 under the partnership between the BMW group and the UNAOC. Faced with an estimated influx of 160,000 newcomers to Berlin in recent years, including 71,000 from outside the country, GSBTB’s role as a facilitator of social integration is growing fast as many migrants and refugees face stigmatism, exclusion and discrimination.The refugee crisis we have been seeing lately actually created a unique opportunity to build a new culture of living together “We are bringing different kinds of migrants together and make them learn and share,” she told the UN News Centre, noting that volunteers of 60 nationalities work with them. GSBTB runs an accessible online platform to inspire and mobilize Berlin’s migrant community to create social impact and foster integration, organize events for newcomers to meet actors in their neighbourhoods, and establish networks for intercultural understanding, solidarity and participation. Once a symbol of division between East and West, Berlin may have a conscience to look for better ways to live together, not stay isolated or segregated, she said. Now, 16 per cent of Berliners are foreign citizens. Ms. Olsson moved from Sweden to Berlin in 2008 to pursue her career as a journalist. As a recipient of the award, which comes with a funding support, she feels greater responsibility to help stabilize the refugee situation in Germany. “We have more than 1 million migrants and have a lot to do,” she said, adding that other cities in and outside Germany are looking to GSBTB’s model and expertise. The finalists were selected from nearly 1,000 applicants from 120 countries. Other prize winners today included: Unistream (Israel), which creates social change by empowering teens from underprivileged communities to build and run their own startups; Red Dot Foundation – Safecity (India), which crowdsources personal stories of sexual harassment to make public spaces safer for all; The Coexist Initiative (Kenya), which engages men, boys and communities to address the socio-cultural stereotypes and conditions that impedes girls’ education; and Shine a Light (Brazil/USA), which teaches indigenous children to share their stories through digital arts. ‹ › Closing their borders Unable to cope with the flood of refugees streaming across their borders every day, some countries closed entry points along their borders. For example, the Hungarian Government built a fence along its border with Serbia and instituted a law criminalizing irregular entry into Hungary. Senior UN officials condemned the actions. Soon afterwards, the UN welcomed a European Union decision to increase aid to countries neighbouring war-torn Syria and to relocate 120,000 people within Europe, but said much more needed to be done. Pictured, refugees are seen through the razor wire fence in Hungary. UNHCR/Mark Henley A child’s view Education is highly valued among Syrians, who once enjoyed free, mandatory schooling before the war. The worsening conditions they have been facing in exile in neighbouring countries are having a devastating impact — some 90,000 Syrians of school age now have no formal education. This is one of the motivating factors for families trying to relocate to Europe. Shown, in Hungary, a Syrian boy looks up at police attempting to stop the refugees from leaving for Budapest. UNHCR/Mark Henley Donated shoes for footsore refugees Thousands of refugees arrive in Vienna, many having walked dozens of kilometres shod only in sandals and flip-flops. This has led to a huge demand for shoes. In response, locals in Vienna have donated shoes for the refugees to replace their worn-out footware. UNHCR/Michael Schöppl A nightmare crossing More than 400,000 refugees and migrants have undertaken the dangerous crossing to Greece in 2015 alone, up from 219,000 in 2014. People smugglers charge between $1,200 to $1,400 per person for the trip and cram as many as they can into boats, sending them out to sea without a captain. Many of the boats capsize. In 2015, nearly 3,000 people have perished or gone missing and the death toll continues to rise. Shown, a Syrian woman cries with relief as she embraces her three young children after a rough crossing. UNHCR/Ivor Prickett Desperate people seeking refuge Fleeing armed conflict and persecution at home, and deteriorating living conditions in neighbouring countries in which they had initially sought refuge, people are risking their lives in growing numbers to find a safe place to live in Europe and beyond. Shown, at sunset, a group of Syrian and Afghan refugees arrive at the Greek island of Lesvos — the main point of entry for refugees to Europe — after making the crossing from Turkey in a rubber raft. UNHCR/Ivor Prickett Frustration in Hungary Forced to sleep outside for nights in a row at a ‘collection point’ and prevented from moving on to Budapest, refugees in Röszke, Hungary, confront the police. Some then broke through the police lines and set out on the road to Budapest. But by nightfall, most had been persuaded to go to a registration centre, which turned out to be full, resulting in their having to spend yet another night outside. By then, hundreds of additional refugees had arrived from Serbia at the original ‘collection point.’ UNHCR/Mark Henley Temporary relief, long-term solutions The United Nations is working alongside Governments and partner humanitarian agencies across Europe to provide aid to refugees and migrants and ensure that their rights and dignity are respected. It is also working with countries to develop longer-term solutions that are effective, feasible and in line with universal human rights and humanitarian standards, including the right to claim asylum. Shown, in Hungary, near the border with Serbia, staff of the UN Refugee Agency install a tent for new refugees, thousands of whom arrive every day with the hope of reaching European countries such as Sweden or Germany. UNHCR/Olivier Laban-Mattei New obstacles at every turn Travelling by land and sea from Africa, the Middle East and Asia, refugees and migrants face new trials and dangers at every turn. Migrant women and children are especially vulnerable to trafficking and exploitation. Pictured, refugees approach the border between Greece and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Earlier clashes with Macedonian security forces were calmed when the authorities on both sides, with help of UNHCR, created a system to control the flow of people through the border.

Opinion Twitter not all fun and games for studentathletes

Photo illustration by Mark BatkeImagine not being able to say whatever you want on Twitter because one bad tweet will make headlines all over. That’s often the case for student athletes when it comes to social media, and it’s particularly true for Twitter.In 2009, Texas Tech University linebacker Marlon Williams decided not to keep his comments to himself when he tweeted about his coach being late to a team meeting.“Wondering why I’m still in this meeting room when the head coach can’t even be on time to his own meeting,” Williams tweeted.Williams’ tweet and account were deleted soon after.In 2011, then-Western Kentucky University and current Tennessee Titans running back Antonio Andrews had something to say to the fans of WKU.“One thing I can say bout #UKfans is they loyal. No matter how sorry they team is they always support them. Can’t say that bout #WKUfans smh,” Andrews tweeted.Andrews was sidelined the following game.Finally in 2012, Ohio State’s very own quarterback, Cardale Jones, then a freshman, made headlines for his controversial tweet about his opinion on attending classes and playing football.“Why should we have to go to class if we have came to play FOOTBALL, we ain’t come to play SCHOOL classes are pointless,” Jones tweeted.Shortly after, Jones’ tweet and his Twitter account were deleted, but the tweet was already captured by many.Student athletes become the face of their school whether they like it or not. They are obligated to represent their university in everything they do, including the tweets they create on Twitter. Any and everything they say will be judged by many.“It’s tough knowing that everything you do is watched pretty closely because I’m doing the same stuff I’ve always done. It’s just now people actually care what I do,” former Texas A&M quarterback and current Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel said to USA Today in January of 2013.Being a student athlete is not always easy. Yes, they might get the perks of having thousands of Twitter followers, but someone is always watching to make one simple tweet into headlines across the globe. Therefore, ask yourself, “Do I really wish to be Cardale Jones and have thousands of followers that watch my every move?” Some might say yes and some might say no, but I personally would rather stay as the average student whose tweets do not make headlines. read more

Zographos to nominate for Oakleigh

first_imgLiberal Party nominations for the state elections of 29 November 2014 opened last Wednesday. According to Neos Kosmos information, the Liberal Party will claim 55 of the 88 seats in the State Parliament, of which 14 are marginal labor seats. One of the marginal labor seats is that of Oakleigh, where the sitting MP Ann Barker has announced her retirement. Oakleigh might become the field of a Greek electoral battle if the Liberal Party chooses a Greek candidate for the seat. The Labor Party has already chosen as its candidate Monash Deputy Mayor, Stephen Dimopoulos, known in the local community for his close cooperation with the former leader of the Labor Party, Simon Crean, and his long tenure in local government. The obvious choice for pre-selection for the Victorian Liberal Party in the seat is Theo Zographos, a candidate already known to the locals for his tough electoral battle with Ann Barker in the state elections of 2010, where he lost the seat for 272 votes. Councillor Zographos told Neos Kosmos he will be nominating for the seat of Oakleigh and wished “to be given an opportunity to reclaim the seat.” If Theo Zographos wins the nomination, Greek voters of Oakleigh will face a serious dilemma in front of the ballot box – whom to vote? Stephen Dimopoulos, or Theo Zographos? The nominations for the seats held by the Liberal Party will close on 24 January. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more
