Through moveurope! we support young migrants to build up a self-determined life in dignity and we encourage companies and EU states to foster regular intra-european migration pathways for educational and vocational purposes. These factors combined benefit EU member states welfare systems and enhances a Europe based on solidarity, offering all young people equal chances.

Our moveurope! programme upholds the core principles of our organisation, migration_miteinander e.V:

  • tolerance and inclusion
  • equality in rights and dignity
  • European and international solidarity



moveurope! is guarantor of these principles and commits to:

  • promote open-mindedness and fight against stereotypes
  • reflect on and update internal recruitment and management methods to ensure inclusion and equal opportunities for all
  • take measures to prevent harassment, discrimination and violence
  • take any discriminatory incident seriously and to act in a proportionate manner
  • promote the participation of people, usually discriminated against or left out in access to mobility and international projects
  • make sure that no choice in the implementation of projects and activities can be motivated by hateful discriminatory criteria.
