Glocal Factory designs and implements projects granted by the European Union and other public and private institutions, aimed at social inclusion, people and community empowerment, sustainable development.

We are currently engaged, together with other Italian and European partners, in implementing 15 transnational projects funded by the EU in the frame of the Erasmus Plus Programme:


SYW: Sustainable Youth Work: from volunteering to entrepreneurship.

The project aims at providing Youth Workers with entrepreneurial skills through a period of mobility in European and African companies. Then it seeks to complete the training path built up by our project CultNet by adding to the MOOC a Wiki area and a Tandem APP. And finally it wants to increase the official recognition of youth work by the involvement of official training institutions. The project is grandet by the European Union in the Programme Erasmus Plus – Capacity Building for Youth Workers.


Get Out of the Loop – good practices against new poverties.

The GOL project – in the frame of the EU Programme Erasmus Plus, Key Action 2, Strategic Partnership in the field of Adult Education – aims to tackle the theme of social exclusion valorizing existing good practices in Europe to combat social exclusion; confronting the methods of “generative welfare”, based on the involvement of the excluded and the resigned who do not seek work and do not inform about their rights, developing the empowerment of the marginalized people and re-creating the link broken at the community level; comparing operators working on marginality with European tools and practices against social exclusion; analyzing social policy experiments based on the resilience of people in times of difficulty and crisis; monitoring social protection systems to identify practices responding to the problems of poverty and social exclusion; experimenting the model proposed by the partnership and contextualize it in own reality.

Building capacities and exchange among youth workers on culture for inclusion.

Cult-Net aims is to raise the capacities of youth workers, active in the peripheral areas, to integrate inclusion measures in their work and use culture as a way to foster youth inclusion and participation.

MiGreat Logo


Supporting Migrants into CVET.

The “MiGreat! Supporting Migrants into CVET” is an Erasmus+ project (2016-2018), which aims to develop training procedures and tools to support training and employability of migrants.

Italy, United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Greece, are the countries involved in the project.

“MiGreat!” aims to improve the skills of VETPROs working with immigrants, migrant workers and refugees transferring the successful “CICERO” vocational training pedagogy and methodology used in Sweden.

Grandma’s Story

Engaging migrant youth in their local communities.

The primary objective of the project Grandma’s Story is to engage and include young people of migrant or refugee background in their local community by developing skills in interpretation, heritage and media, in a setting of migration, tolerance and diversity. The secondary objective is to extend and develop youth workers’ competence for working in and with museums and galleries, heritage and community associations especially those within areas of larger ethnic minority populations.


Individually, some members of “Glocal Factory” are involved in the implementation of other EU projects. Among them:

  • BELOW 10, focused on fighting against early school leaving
  • AMARE – A Multicultural Approach to REsilience, focused on migrants involvement in civili protection activities
