Intercultural Malta: Towards the Achievement of Integration in Malta through the Intercultural Cities Approach is a project being implemented by SOS Malta and is co-funded by the European Fund for the Integration of Third Country Nationals (EIF) 2011.  The project's main objective is to develop, through the exchange of experience and ideas, recommendations and guidelines for the creation of intercultural cities in Malta that actively promote and enable the integration of third country nationals into Maltese society.

SOS Malta  will hold a Pan-European Conference on good practice of integrating immigrants within society.  The conference will include speakers from European countries who will share their good practice of promoting integration through the intercultural cities approach.  Key stakeholders will be given the opportunity to learn about different approaches and possibilities for Malta.
