The day of October 2nd will undoubtedly remain in the history of the Cluj community.
It is the day when the Cluj Citizens Council in Romania was officially launched. This is the first initiative of its kind within Romania and it is launched on a most fitting day: Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday and International Day of Non-Violence. Cluj is thus strengthening its status as an #inclusive and visionary city, and a city of peace.
The Cluj International Citizens Council is an organization created by PATRIR as part of the Migrant Voices Heard project, aiming to be a platform through which international citizens who come to Cluj can make their voices heard.
The founding members are international citizens within the community who want to provide support for those who arrive in Cluj and face difficulties in integrating.
We are proud of Alis Costescu, Mihaela-Ionela Furculiță, Esraa Zahran, and the other colleagues and interns from the PATRIR Global Inclusion Department who have put in substantial effort in developing this project and are always available to provide support to any international citizen who comes at PATRIR.
We would like to thank the partners who have supported us in this endeavor, including the Primăria Municipiului Cluj-Napoca, Universitatea „Babeș-Bolyai” din Cluj-Napoca, ADI Zona Metropolitană Cluj, DIRECTIA DE ASISTENTA SOCIALA SI MEDICALA Cluj and Cluj International Women Club.
We’re committed to promoting diversity as a catalyst for social change, fostering equal opportunity practices, and strengthening democratic processes.
Our mission has been made possible through the “Migrant Voices Heard” project, funded by the European Union through the Fund for Asylum, Migration, and Integration.
