Kvinnor Soma Sverige is a nonprofit and non-governmental organization, founded by young residents living in Stockholm Municipality, keen to exploit their competences and to play an active role in the non-profit sector.
We believe young people have enormous untapped potential and can play an effective role in instigating positive change in their communities: we are hardly working to help them to fully express their enormous potential, for the benefit of the community and themselves. In a nutshell, Kvinnor Soma Sverige mission is focused on:
- the promotion of the integration of new migrants and refugee into Swedish society

Asociación Cultural Integra was founded in 2004 in A Coruña as an initiative of young people interested in the field of integration and European cooperation.
We are convinced that personal and social development doesn’t happen without knowing, living and feeling other social, economic and cultural rights of other European Union countries.
Asociación Cultural Integra objectives are improve the knowledge of the European Union and the instruments that makes available the youngest thereby promoting greater understanding and social cohesion also aims to increase mobility between countries, promoting international cooperation mutual cultural enrichment and publicize volunteering as an expression of an intercultural dimension based on solidarity and equality.
To achieve these objectives we have worked and continue to work with different mobility programs such as Erasmus+ (promoting the KA2 “Digital Competences Framework in Practice” and as a partner in “The suitcase, the map and the voyage of a youth worker”), Youth Exchanges and EVS programmes, Horizon 2020, Leonardo da Vinci (Mobility and Transfer of Innovation Projects) and other international projects and local development in closed cooperation, on local, regional and national levels, with schools, public authorities, education centers and no profit organization in the field of education and social sectors.
We look at the Erasmus+ as a tool to empower people, to promote inter-cultural awareness, to spread solidarity and equality.
Bluebook LTD is a SME communication agency, with a special expertise in social communication. Bluebook works with young people through schools and through associations representing them, looking for and finding always new communication strategies in order to actively involve the youngest, with the aim to promote the principle of equal opportunities for all and the positive values of multiculturalism.
The core of our culture are the values of quality, integrity, respect, entrepreneurial spirit, mutual benefits and citizenship: imaging a world in which work and knowledge are an opportunity for personal growth and economic development, we have been working for about 15 years to realize this idea, through projects and initiatives that help organizations and people to empower themselves, to improve their abilities and skills, to relation each other, to solve their problem, to communicate to the world in an effective and respectful way. To enrich and integrate our core business activities we plans and carry out training activities, seminars, projects and publications for individuals, private companies and public bodies, focused primarily on the concept of equal opportunities for all and on the role that education plays in this context. In these contexts our target groups are transversal: we are used to work with young people, but also with other target, with a focus on people facing disadvantage.
We look at the Erasmus+ programme as an opportunity to share our values with people and organizations, to learn from each other, to widen people horizon.
