“New Neighbours” is about people who had to leave their home and try to integrate into a new neighbourhood, new village, new city, new society. Community Media empower the „New Neighbours“ and provide them a place to develop their independent voices and make them heard in public debate. A small group of community media producers and coordinators from all over Europe met in Siena (Italy) to share what has worked well in their intercultural work/programs so far, what is needed to make the programs more sustainable / visible, and to jointly develop some creative ideas for new outreach initiatives on a grass-roots level. This seminar was organized by Community Media Forum Europe (CMFE).
