Welcome to the Cities of Migration beta

A new international initiative capturing innovative and inspiring integration practices from cities around the world.

Under the themes of Work, Live, Learn, Connect and Plan, the Cities of Migration will profile good ideas in integration. Whether it is faith based financing in Chicago, speed mentoring in Montreal or kids playing kickball in Munich, these innovative approaches to integration are changing the way urban centres help newcomers not only adapt, but succeed.

Each story includes contact information, a searchable e-library with resources for further reading and city-level information to help users adapt these practices locally, wherever you live and work.

Officially launching in March 2009, the Cities of Migration initiative will begin by hosting a series of open monthly seminars on innovation in integration. These easy to use online learning events will be led by experienced practitioners from across the integration field and provide an opportunity to connect interested parties from around the world. Other features to look forward to include Conversations in Integration, an open forum for discussion, opinion, and information exchange, and a multilingual website (German and French)!

Stay informed. Register now for Integration News and updates about the Learning Exchange.

Cities of Migrationbeta is an initiative of The Maytree Foundation in partnership with The Barrow Cadbury Trust, Bertelsmann Siftung and The Tindall Foundation.
