Our activites in 2016

In 2016, the association prepared a big change… It celebrated New Year’s Eve with the name Pistes Solidaires Méditerranée, but at the dawn of 2017, it will wake up changed, with a new name:

Hors Pistes !

Carte Blanche

« Carte Blanche » is an intercultural exchange where young people, the theater and their voices will be the protagonists. Two groups of 10 young people, one from France and the other from Palestine, met twice and ended with a performance in Marseille.

Rec’On the Future

It is a training that took place in 2016, for 27 youth professionals from the Balkans and Western Europe. They had the opportunity to get involved in an intercultural dialogue, through the creation of short films in Prizren, Kosovo, about the city, its inhabitants, its customs and rhythms of life.


The project aims to pilot a model of engaged parrainage, innovative and sustainable for migrants aged between 16 and 25 years, over a two-year period (2015-2017). The objective is to facilitate their integration, particularly in the labor market, through parrainage. The project is supported by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ program.
