Duration: 1. 1. 2023 – 31. 12. 2023
Place of realization: Ústí nad Labem
Implementer: The Counselling Centre for Integration
Financing: From the state budget of the Czech Republic under the programme “Integration of Foreigners 2023” co-financed by the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic, UNICEF, the Statutory City of Ústí nad Labem, ČEZ Foundation.
The aim of the Colourful planet festival project is to introduce the culture, customs and national differences of foreign communities living in the Czech Republic to the Czech majority society. This way, we also help to facilitate non-violent bonding and mutual understanding between foreigners living in the Czech Republic and the majority society. The integration of foreigners into the majority society is facilitated.
The project focuses on two target groups. The first is the general public. Part of the festival’s programme is also intended especially for families with children. The second target group is foreigners from third countries legally residing in the Czech Republic. An additional group is persons with international protection in the Czech Republic, especially foreigners living in the Ústí nad Labem region, who are actively involved in the preparation and implementation of the festival.
