Mare Nostrum Project: support and stregthening of local solidarity for refugees

The initiative, which is supported by the City Council of Sant Feliu de Llobregat and funded by the Catalonian Agency for Development Cooperation, has worked on the role of the local world and the refugees in the processes of peace building and post-conflict reconstruction.

From April 2016 to April 2017, the UB Solidarity Foundation coordinated the project “Mare Nostrum. Local solidarity, plural dialogue and construction of peace from exile“, whose objective was to contribute to the incorporation of a multidimensional vision of refugees in local entities as actors who legitimize the right to peace and its construction.

The project has counted with the support of City Hall of Sant Feliu de Llobregat and the funding of the Catalan Agency for Development Cooperation.
