Frivillighet Norge (The Association of NGOs in Norway (Frivillighet Norge) in collaboration with Akershus county invites to Inclusion conference: "Someone who is right for me? Integration in practice in the voluntary sector," at Lørenskog house, Tuesday 13 November at. 16.30.
- Integration also means that minority organizations must be included in the society, says Secretary General in Frivillighet Norge , Birgitte Brekke.
Birgitte Brekke is disappointed of the new White Paper, report to the Norwegian Parliament from the Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion (BLD) titled "A coherent integration policy: Diversity and Community".
- The voluntary sector is by nature full of low thresholds and transparency, so it is good that the government recognizes the sector's role in inclusion work. But it is a pity that the White Paper from BLD contains few concrete measures, says Brekke.
Editor in morsmal.org and leader in the voluntary NGO organization Morsmal, On Elpeleg, agrees with Brekke. Elpeleg believes that the White Paper includes incorrect information about Education and the NAFO project "Tema Morsmål".
He says that Morsmal NGO has complained now to the Ombudsman and to the Parliamentary Scrutiny and Constitutional Committee about "fabricating information in the report" in connection with the connection with the marketing of the controversial website "Tema Morsmål" in this report.
- We think it is strange that while the report has an entire chapter about the importance of immigrant organizations' volunteer work and states that "In order to make greater use of immigrant organizations as positive resources, the government and other public organs should contact and collaborate with them"(page 126 on the report), the report supports shutting down of our website, which has been an important voluntary initiative from minorities in 10 years now.
- We have tried for 3 years now to get in constructive dialogue with the authorities and are totally ignored, says Elpeleg.
The conference is free and it is reported that over 110 organizations will send their representatives.
