Preparation and conciliation

  • From December 2017 till February 2018:
    • CIES-IUL prepares a collection of good practices;
    • Partners from other countries contact and activate local stakeholders (social actors and institutions interested in the action).
  • From February till March 2018: in Bagnoli, in Cyprus, in Slovenia, and in Croatia short training paths are delivered for stakeholders, so as to shape a common language and vision on the migration phenomenon and on how to manage it and deal with it.
  • In April 2018, stakeholders who have attended the training paths design their Local Action Plans.

Local Action Plan implementation

  • Till end of April 2018, LAP’s (Local Action Plans) are presented to the population of the involved territories.
  • From May 2018 till the end of the project (November 2019) the LAP’s are implemented in Bagnoli, in Croatia, in Slovenia, and in Cyprus. The implementation will be led by Local piloting Committees which will involve the participation of various social and institutional actors.
  • In October 2019, Partners will implement an evaluation of the results and of the achieved impact with regards to each participating country.
  • In November 2019, the evaluation results are presented and discussed with the involved population.

What could the LAP’s be about

As an example, the LAP’s could provide a synergic link among these and other activities:
  • Socially useful work of refugees in favor of municipalities, non-profit associations and the local population;
  • Interventions of cultural mediators working internally and externally of the hospitality centers;
  • Training of trainers;
  • Identification and recognition of refugees professional skills in order to promote a temporary job placement;
  • Training courses and job placements in agriculture, the launch of “social gardens” and food self-production to improve the quantity and quality of nutrition for refugees and disadvantaged groups within the local population;
  • Experiences of “solidarity based economy”, solidarity based purchasing groups (fair trade);
  • Meet with the local population to prepare the welcoming of refugees, even in small facilities or in families;
  • Training labs for refugees (“survival language” in the hosting country, civic education, intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, transversal skills to search for work and job placement in Europe, hygiene and health;
  • Meetings, parties, sport events to foster knowledge and dialogue between refugees and local population;
  • Radio and local TV programs;
