Crossing borders in May, 2015

You might have noticed that Crossing Borders got a new logo – and if you are wondering, what else is new on May, read this post!

First of all – if you haven’t yet, join our internship for writers – take a look here!

Global studies

CB global studies spring 2015 is drawing to conclusion on 6 June after 5 months of global experience at Krogerup Højskole. The group of 18 students from 14 countries has produced documentaries, articles on media and minorities and photo stories. The materials are being edited into an edition of CB magazine.

Catarina has been managing the facebook page and its going pretty well! We’ve been having both more followers and engagements with the links. I think that the image approach (instead of putting just a link) combined with questions are more active engagement have been working for us.
Crossing Borders Aarhus

CB Aarhus is going to participate in the ‘In the same boat’ campaign. We’re going to go to several places in Aarhus and engage with people there. Since we’re only three here, I’m going to create both an event and a call for volunteers to help us with the event and to raise awareness for it. Crossing Borders Aarhus Facebook page is coming soon as well. 🙂 The interns (they’re amazing) made videos interviewing both Danes and foreigners about immigration issues.

From Expats To Experts project

We are happy to share, that we found our first young participants who want to join Crossing Border’s FETE-project. We have arranged individual meetings where we have been clarifying the benefits and obligations that come along with joining the FETE-project.

In addition, we started to build new partnerships among others with the Red Cross in Denmark in order to spread the project idea together, find interns as well as host institutions.

On the international level, we are currently planning the meeting in Malta that had to be postponed to September 2015. Together with our partners in Italy, Malta and France, we are currently developing exciting activities for the young participants from all four countries.
