System and Generation Association is member and representative of Ana Lindh Foundation for Turkey. We have implemented many projects under AnaLindh Foundation and been partners on many projects implemented by our partners on AnaLindh Network.

Briefly our projects implemented on ICE field:

DBN – Dialogue Between Neighbors:
-Involve Young people to dialogue with their neighbors who are come from different cultures/religions/social background-minority groups, preparing a practical record of their communication by using the method of participatory video-Increase the level of knowledge/tolerance/sympathy of local citizens and immigrants about cultural diversity in their community and focusing on common values, traditions etc. by promoting the video based on real life stories of migrants and their life in the foreign country

IMAGINE: Migrant Journeys The main purpose of our project "Imagine: Migrant Journeys" is to spread information about migration from Asia and Middle East to Europe. It will let people experience the journeys that migrants/refugees are making to escape the from the war in Syria and from the Taliban in Afghanistan. The idea behind this strategy board game is to get players to understand what a migrant/refugee has to go through in order to get to Europe. We hope that players will sympathise and empathise with these migrants via these games and help reduce the unprecedented rise in several negative trends such as xenophobia and radicalism. https://youtu.be/2tIs1M3tnY8
