Bürmoos was founded by the Prague Entrepreneur Ignaz Glaser in the 1880s. Therefore the town of Bürmoos is a relatively young town compared to the other establishments in the neighbourhood. As Bürmoos has emerged through immigration and has consistently grown, the integration of new Citizens is positively perceived.
Inspired by this circumstance, the organisers of the 1. Ignaz-Glaser-Symposions searched for towns with a similar background and initiated an exchange of experiences.
Therefore, representatives from Braunau/Inn, Freilassing, Hallein, Mauthausen, Telfs, Traunreut and Waldkraiburg will meet for this exchange of experiences in the community centre of Bürmoos between 21.-23. April 2006.
UNITED for Intercultural Action included the 1. Ignaz-Glaser-Symposium as 'good practice' in its 'Calendar of Internationalism', a project which publishes information about important events, seminars, training courses conferences, demonstrations, exhibitions, festivals etc. in the field of anti-racism, anti-nationalism, anti-fascism, support of migrants and refugees and human rights.
