Meath Participate! – One Stop Shop Active Citizenship Event
Cultúr alongside the Immigrant Council of Ireland and NASC Cork organised a One Stop Shop, Active Citizenship event for ethnic minorities living in Co. Meath. The purpose of the event was to facilitate civic and political participation of EU and non-EU migrants in Ireland. Engage, integrate, participate!
The One-Stop-Shop was a collection of organisations (both statutory and non-statutory) that were able to facilitate the greater community, as well as civic and political integration of EU and non-EU migrants.
The One-Stop-Shops encouraged applications for Irish citizenship, voter registration and community and civic participation at the local level.
We sought the engagement of a wide range of organisations to have a stand at the event. This included information about their organisation and the supports they provide. They also illustrated how people can become involved in their organisation.
This event provided an opportunity for greater engagement between ethnic minorities and the communities of which they are part of.
