Glocal Factory designs and implements projects granted by the European Union and other public and private institutions, aimed to social inclusion, people’s and communities empowerment, sustainable development.At the moment we are engaged, together with other Italian and European Partners, in implementing four transnational projects funded by the EU in the frame of the Erasmus Plus Programme:
In Autumn 2018 we have started cooperation with other two projects:
- T.O.M.M. Training Operators of Migrants through Mobility
The novelty and the dimension of migratory flows required structures ready to manage the humanitarian emergency by responding to national regulations and international agreements.
Here, the function of migrant operators in charge of the Reception Centers plays a fundamental role in welcoming, managing and integrating refugees and asylum seekers in the hosting communities.
The objective of the project (in the frame of the EU Programme Erasmus Plus, Key Action 1, staff mobility) is to update, train and motivate the staff of the reception centers, comparing the Italian operators working with similar systems having already developed integration models in Greece, Portugal and Great Britain.
- N.E.W.I. NEw Workers for Inclusion
The project (granted by the EU Programme Erasmus Plus, Key Action 2, Strategic Partnership in the field of Adult Education) aims to developing a Guideline of migrants operators’ job description and a Model of best practices regarding reception and social integration of migrants. A practical approach of good practices’ exchange among social workers coming from Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom and Greece by visiting centers and services for migrants will be the focus of the Short-term staff training activities.
