VOICITYS Justice Project

VOICITYS Justice Project

 

http://www.voicitys.eu

VOICITYS aims to improve social integration through reinforcing social dialogue and communication in European urban neighbourhoods characterised by ethnical and cultural diversity.

The Consortium is coordinated by Comparative Research Network (Germany), Mine Vaganti NGO (Italy), PVM (UK) and CERSHAS (Hungary).

More particularly, we intend to improve and make sustainable the communication and interaction between different social groups, and to deepen dialogue between policy makers, stakeholders and citizens in order to promote more efficient management of diversity.

Comparing the positive and negative experiences of local citizens with those of local stakeholders, leaders and decision-makers will improve common understandings of diversity at the neighbourhood level. It will also encourage new approaches to existing policies, incentives and tools regarding social integration and sustainable diversity.

The project focuses on studying four diverse European neighbourhoods: Wedding (Berlin, Germany), Jozsefvaros (Budapest, Hungary)., Salford (Greater area of Manchester, United Kingdom) and Sassari’s Old Town (Sassari, Italy).

Community Reporting is a storytelling movement that supports people to tell their own stories, in their own ways.
As part of this movement, people’s authentic stories are connected with decision makers who can use the insights in them to make positive change for communities.

At the Voicitys Kick-Off meeting 10 trainers from across the participating countries and organisations were trained as Insight Advocate Trainers and equipped with the skills to deliver Community Reporting for Insight programmes that seek to gather lived experience stories of what life is like in diverse neighbourhoods across Europe.
With these skills, the Insight Advocate Trainers have been delivering 2-Day training programmes in Sassari, Salford, Budapest and Berlin in which participants will use Community Reporting storytelling practices and smartphones and/or tablets to record their own and other people’s stories in relation to diversity and life in the neighbourhoods in which they live.

The Trainers are also holding local meet-up sessions to help their Community Reporters to continue to develop their skills and gather more stories from different people who live in their neighbourhoods. They have begun to share them online. So far over 40 stories have been gathered and over 50 participants trained in Community Reporting storytelling methods. All of the participants are now Silver members of the Institute of Community Reporters.

Project research encompasses the following 4 main activities:

  1. Collecting and curating stories of citizens through Community Reporting. In this frame a total 80 Citizen stories were collected across all partner countries by the Community Reporters trainedby each partner organization.
  2. Collecting and analysing stakeholders’ interviews through the implementation of semi-structured interviews. A total 45 interviews with stakeholders at the local, regional, national and European levels were performed by all partner organizations.
  3. Comparing the results of the two methods and elaborating a series of policy recommendations through participative workshops and consensus meetings in all partner countries.

The expected result is to collect and compare information on local diversity from citizens and stakeholders with a view to outlining multilevel recommendations, In doing so, the Consortium set itself the objective of developing a new model of Citizen participation in local and European policies related to diversity.

Justice programme contributes to the further development of a European area of justice based on mutual recognition and mutual trust. It promotes: judicial cooperation in civil matters, including civil and commercial matters, insolvencies, family matters and successions, etc. judicial cooperation in criminal matters judicial training, including language training on legal terminology, with a view to fostering a common legal and judicial culture effective access to justice in Europe, including rights of victims of crime and procedural rights in criminal proceedings initiatives in the field of drugs policy (judicial cooperation and crime prevention aspects).

MVNGO implemented a Training for Community Reporters in Sassari. Community Reporters gathered in MVNGO’s office for the purposes of attending 4 Meetups wherein to prepare community interviews.

The project involved the establishment of a specific online Platform dedicated to spreading and promoting project tourism offer www.foreveryoungtourism.eu.

“Forever Young!” purported itself to enhance transnational mobility by designing routes and products, based upon local cultural UNESCO heritage (immaterial and material such as oral traditions, monuments, Mediterranean dietary ecc.) in association with the promotion of local typical food and beverages in order to provide an unique learning experience: “living the culture”.

As a concrete product, tourism packages for stimulating transnational senior tourism flows were developed and tested.

Moreover, a total 54 deliverables (products of internal as well as external relevance functional to project progress) were developed over the 18 months of the cooperation.

The Consortium involved European experts, enterprises, tour operators, NGOs and municipalities active in the tourism field specially targeted at Seniors.
This positive result confirms the important role played by project team with a peculiar view on social enterprise.

A total of 4 Fam Trips was organized in order to test the Senior-targeted tourism packages developed in the project. The Fam Trips took place in Italy, France, Spain and Slovenia with the participation of international groups of Seniors and tourism agents/wholesalers.

Mine Vaganti NGO implemented the Fam Trip in Italy in the venue of Uri (Sardinia) betweeen June 27th and 29th 2017. In the context of the Italian Fam Trip, wherein a total 12 participants (4 tour operators and 8 Seniors) from France, Spain and Slovakia took part, the tourism package “Sardinia: A Culture to Live”, centered on the cultural, folkoric and historical heritage of Uri was presented and assessed.
