The Land.Zuhause.Zukunft programme aims to ensure that (new) immigrants become a natural part of society in rural areas. The active shaping of immigration is an opportunity for politics, administration, civil society and the economy to create attractive prospects for (new) immigrants to stay.
The district of Waldeck-Frankenberg has been selected as one of six districts nationwide - and will be supported in the concrete implementation of the programme on site. In Waldeck-Frankenberg, the focus will be on integrating refugees into the labour market. If people can get into work or training without major hurdles and with good professional support and the local actors, there is a good chance of opening the door to integration.
Together with the Waldeck-Frankenberg district crafts association, the district wants to develop sustainable and good structures for this. The district is being advised and supported by the Robert Bosch Foundation and the University of Hildesheim.
