The European project Parents for Inclusion promoted by the AEF – Spanische Weiterbildungsakademie (Germany) together with the partners Popoli Insieme, Red Incola (Spain), San Ricardo Pampuri (Spain) and Nesting Play (Hungary) aims to promote the dialogue between different inclusion experiences for migrant parents in the four partner countries.
Through local activities, meetings and debates, the main goal of the project is the development of a collective output with a collection of best practices and workshops, in order to foster the inclusion of migrant parents.
The european project “TIPS”, co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme and promoted by Popoli Insieme together with Fundacion Red Incola (Spain), YouthLand (Romania) e AMAL İNSANİ YARDIM DERNEĞİ – KİLİS ŞUBESİ (Turkey), aims to promote social inclusion and make the topic of environmental sustainability more comprehensible and concrete for young people,in particular for young migrants and refugees, thus fostering their social engagement and active participation in the community and with their peers, also contributing to the development of their digital competence and to their future employability in green jobs.
How will we do it?
- In the partner countries there will be monthly sessions of activities for environmental sustainability that will engage youngsters, migrants and refugees
- Through a training for 16 young people and 4 youth workers in Arad (Romania) on the topic of environmental sustainability, green jobs & climate activism, including digital aspects
- The young participants will develop development of a vademecum entitled “TIPS for an intercultural and sustainable community
The european project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union and the European Commission and is led by a consortium made of six organizations in five different countries:
- Associazione Popoli Insieme (Italy)
- DOMNA (Italy)
- IAAD (Turkey)
- Ecepaa (Belgium)
- Embaixada da Juventud (Portugal)
- Red Incola (Spain)
The pandemic has had a significant impact on youth: mental health concerns, loneliness, isolation as well as challenges in peer and family relationships and in education.
The situation is even more severe for young refugees. This is the reason why youth workers need to develop specific skills and learn new methods to adapt their approach to pandemic times. They will do it with the support of the six competent and cooperative youth organizations that lead this project.
How to overcome isolation, even in times of social distancing? Art helps stimulate creativity, it is a vector of social cohesion and allows people in need or difficulty to express themselves.
Digital tools are key elements for inclusion under the pandemic situation.
The project aims to foster the process of decision making, team working, communication, interaction, anti-fragility, creativity, process management skills of youth workers.
It promotes community-based rehabilitation and anti-fragility approaches among youth workers and the cultural&creative sector grassroots organizations.
It encourages the resilience and antifragility of youth workers and associations, to face the global crisis and transform it into an opportunity. This will also help to develop and strengthen the digital, anti-fragility, artistic, cooperative, management, and creative skills of partner associations as well as strengthen cooperation among them.
It fosters non-formal education methods, creativity, art and digitalism in youth work to build an inclusive educational environment for young refugees by promoting active citizenship and foster creativity, culture, and multiculturalism among young people through art and digital tools.
Eventually it aims to raise awareness on refugee and pandemic issues in the community.
