Summary of the project
The project “Sharing Educational tools for Enhancing community Development (SEED)” aims at developing and sharing best practices in the field of social inclusion since it involves different organizations and institutional and non-institutional actors which work in this area focusing on the work with the disadvantaged quarters and target groups in their local context.
The main idea is that each Association working in the social field shares with others its tools for inclusion of sensible targets. On the other hand, institutional and non-institutional actors will present their work such as research and specific intervention strategies.
This project aspire at creating a cooperation between associations and institutional/non institutional actors in order to ameliorate their impact thanks to the use of new tools and methods successfully experimented by the other partners.
There will be 13 partners, 6 of them will be considered direct partners, as organizations which work directly in the disadvantaged communities, and will organize the transnational meeting in their countries hosting the other partners. The other 7 will be considered supporting partners, as universities and social enterprises, because they will not host a meeting in their countries but they will present their research or economic strategy of inclusion during a meeting.
The direct partners have been selected based on their experience in the specific field and the previous positive experience during different projects. The choice took into account the specialty of each partner in order to create a complete framework including different aspects of inclusion and targets. During the transnational meetings the hosting partner will present its best practice and its main tools and methodology through a direct experience, so each partner will comprehend deeply the approach and its practice.
Regarding the supporting partners we decide to include the following countries with mentioned profile:
- Belgium – University
- Germany – University
- Greece – Volunteering association;
- Hungary – Social association
- Netherlands – University
- Portugal – Social enterprise
- Spain – Social enterprise
- UK – Social association
The communication between partners will happen through emails and Skype call to organize and share information about the transnational meetings. During this 3 years long project, five meetings will be organized in each direct partner country so each 6 months a meeting will be held in a different country and two representatives of each partner will participate in order to experiment the single best practice.
The project’s priority is to improve the impact of each association projects thanks to a deeper knowledge of new methodologies, which allows enhancing the performances through the use of different tools.
The most relevant topics addressed are Human rights, mainly related to non formal education as a tool for social inclusion; Social awareness associated to the drama as methodology for socio-cultural integration and empowerment; Education, Health care and skills development linked to a melting pot place; Peace building and Peace education as an instrument for youth policy development, European integration and the implementation of the European standards in social life through a Youth center.
During each transnational meeting all the representatives of these 13 partners will have the opportunity to experience the best practice of the hosting organization and share the research results of an academic study or the analysis of economic strategy of a social enterprise in the field of social inclusion. After each meeting the partners will realize and spread them in their context through a specific activity of implementation and a dissemination seminar. Two weeks after the meeting each association will present an implementation and dissemination plan explaining the activities and the terms of both actions in order to present to the partners the strategy which they want to proceed with.
The intellectual output of the project will be a Guideline book with all the methodologies and tools experienced during the project meetings.
