IOM’s activities ensure that migrants and potential migrants can make informed and free migration-related decisions. Activities are innovative and leverage social networks, gamification, sport and the arts. All activities are adapted to the specific audience and context and keep a participation at the heart. For example:
- Games provide young people with opportunities for deeper learning;
- Sport can strengthen social cohesion between migrants, returnees and host communities;
- Theatre can capture the public’s attention and kick start conversations on difficult topics; and
- Public art projects can be a vector for change, inspiring interaction between diverse participants and conversations around local development.
