Project GREAT

KA220-ADU

EMPOWERED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT: ECOLOGICAL LIVING, CULTURAL HERITAGE AND ECONOMY

GREAT is a European project based on the family relationship with grandparents. Grandparents play a fundamental role in family relationships, they are often the ones in charge of looking after their grandchildren when parents cannot take care of them, this is a beneficial relationship for both parties, as grandparents enjoy company, which helps to avoid loneliness, lack of attention or affection.

The pandemic has caused a social distancing that has led to the break-up of this type of relationship. To avoid this, the use of technology has been used, which has made it possible to avoid this distancing.

This project seeks to facilitate the process of ageing in adulthood and help in the development of educational skills in adults as well as encouraging them to develop ways to stimulate their creativity, their lateral thinking and support them in their relationship with their grandchildren. The ultimate goal is to maintain creativity even in times of social distancing or health crisis.

Activities such as reading, writing, painting, watching films among other things can be used to support relationships even remotely, all with the aim of supporting their relationship even remotely, ensuring that they participate in their grandchildren’s education and maintain active ageing

The specific objectives of the GREAT project are:

  1. Educate grandparents to be able to take an active part in their education.
  2. To be able to be part of the family role in small communities, even if there is no family relationship.
  3. To certify the capacity of grandparents to support single parents, families with low economic resources…
  4. Strengthen the educational skills of adults over 65 or grandparents of any age.
  5. Stimulate adult-child relationships.
  6. Promote active ageing.

The international partnership of the project is composed of: Italy, Spain, Greece, Romania.

SPACE4US Project

 

 

KA220-YOU

SPACE4US is an European project that aims at developing and testing an innovative and integrated model for the individual and collective empowerment of young women, based on blended-experiential learning activities, to foster the social inclusion of girls at risk of marginalisation.

Led by Glocal Factory, this project sees the active involvement of eight other partner organisations, Geinnova, Iscte,Breza,Synthesis Center, CZ-ART, NOESSO, L’Albero cooperativa,Mano Europa all of which are active and experienced in training and education sectors.

The concrete Objectives are as follows:

  1. To provide a framework as up-to-date as possible of the different contexts that generate
    inequality and marginalisation of girls: patriarchal families, culturally deprived families, schools unable to cope with bullying, social media, etc.; and specific to different territories across Europe.t
  2. To design and experiment new support strategies to help these girls reach their full potential, through activities, digital tools and spaces tailored to their individual and shared needs.
  3. To improve the personal and professional skills of the youth workers involved in the project, who often lack proper  pedagogical knowledge and methodologies to deal with the most pressing youth issues and more specifically with “girl issues”.
  4. It wants to be a means to increase motivation and satisfaction in their daily work and to boost
    their opportunities for professional development through the exchange of good practices and training, also by establishing working relationships with other youth workers from different European countries.
  5. To bridge the digital divide that generally affects young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, who tend to have less access to technologies than their peers and who, especially during COVID-19, found themselves in a situation of further marginalisation.

 

The partnership is composed of Italy, Croatia, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus, Lithuania, Poland.
