Photovoice Comune di Olbia

Photovoice

The project was entirely funded by the Municipality of Olbia and implemented by MVNGO.

The activities involved 2 classes of the third High School year of the Institute and were implemented by two collaborators of MVNGO, a Trainer expert in Non Formal Education and a Facilitator.

“Photovoice Olbia” was a project involving youngsters aged between 16 and 18 from Istituto Superiore Amsicora IPIA, also through the use of communication media as photographs and videos, developing their creativity and putting the latter to the service of the citizenry through the promotion of active citizenship. “Photovoice Olbia” activated a path allowing young people to develop their own points of view regarding the world surrounding them as well as to exploit these as tools of social change through the use of photography, videos and group discussion. The language of imagery, easily accessible for young people in particular, was combined with text language by the development of digital instruments and of widespread tools as smartphones, bringing into being an original and innovative methodology of research and analysis about urban contexts and ordinary life experiences, which contributed to the development of the critical thinking of the youngsters involved, giving voice to marginalized individuals and areas of the city.

Grundtvig Workshop “Inclusive Methods on Foreign Language”

Inclusive Methods on Foreign Language

The aim of the Grundtvig Workshop organised in September 2013 by MVNGO was to develop participants’ individual and social skills, relevant to their personal development and learning needs.

During the workshop, the participants’ creativity, teamwork skills, self-confidence and readiness for collaboration with others was enhanced.

Non formal education had a positive influence in people with very different cultural and social background, so it can be used as a tool in the education process, providing competence development for personal self-esteem.

Main activities of the Workshop were planned following the prototype of the simulation method.

The programme of the Workshop consisted of four different parts, where participants had an active role: they had to find out a solution to different types of problems accouring during the classroom sessions about different topics: intercultural dialogue, difficulties of comprehension, cultural behavior and linguistic barriers.

Every teacher could face off problems during his/her daily work.

The aim was to create “adaptive lessons” according to the different capabilities of the potential students to interact or understand another language.

The main activites of the project were based on the use of Non formal education as a supporting method for facilitating the process of Learning a language by foreigners.

The introduction of NFE Education and NFE methods helped to promote Community Content- Based Instruction within the formal educational system, because it:

-Involves students actively in identifying needs and finding solutions,

-Promotes learning that is practical, flexible, and based on real needs,

-Focuses on improving the life of the individual and/or community,

-Encourages students to assess, practice and reflect on their learning,

-Promotes the use of NFE as a facilitator process during the working session.

Chance for a Change

Chance for a Change

“Chance for a Change” was held in Sardinia in 2014.

The promotion of Green Skills in Sardinia was the main objective of the project granted by Fondazione Banco di Sardegna.

This project was implemented in the Olbia Tempio Province.

Following the current economic crisis in the tourism sector, much of the population aged between 18 and 32 years, especially women, at one time used at least seasonally in the tourism industry, it is unemployed or, even worse, unoccupied .

In this context it is necessary to develop new skills to guarantee the possibility of devising new forms of employment and self-employment which have to be compatible with the tourism economy that characterizes the Gallura Region.

We proposed to create new artistic and technical skills in the collection of polluting materials for the creation of “green” products (recycled) that have a real value in use (eg, lamps, storage , landscaping items , small furniture the house etc.) and a value of “artistic”.

The object then was to create and develop in recipients of second instance a set of green skills  that are the necessary condition for a possible development of a processing techniques of “waste”, urban and not, thus triggering of professional competences in the context of a new green economy.
