Opið samtal | Equity in access to opportunities

Tuesday May 24th 2022

We invite to an open conversation at the library about equity in access to opportunities for young people with mother tongue other than Icelandic - opportunities to education, to form social bonds with peers and to pursue hobbies. Is it enough to learn the language or are the obstacles more diverse? Do young people of foreign origin receive encouragement, support and facilities in the community to flourish as individuals or could things possibly be done better? 
How can institutions and places such as libraries contribute to increased opportunities for young people with a mother tongue other than Icelandic? 

All welcome
