Objective of the project

We fight against educational poverty through a new model of inclusive civic participation involving youth, parents, schools, public institutions and the private sector.

Abstract of the project

The project’s main objective is to increase the civic participation of children and the educational community through activities that develop cognitive, relational and social skills including technological, communication, problem-solving skills; the promotion of new forms of  participation both within the governance of the school and the community; the co-planning of goods and services with local public and private entities and advocacy actions towards public decision-makers and institutions.

Context analysis

Educational poverty generates a vicious cycle whereby children are deprived of “their right to learn, build capacities and competencies, cultivate their aspirations and talents”. Poverty, inequalities and exclusion have an impact on children’s ability to take part in the political and social life of their communities. Children lose the capacity to be heard, to participate critically, to set objectives and implement actions to address the structural causes of poverty. Children often find themselves without 1) economic, cultural and relational resources; 2) psychological motivations, ideals and ambitions; and 3) opportunities and spaces to participate.

The project is implemented in 5 cities in Italy: Ancona, L’Aquila, Rome, Pordenone  and Trebisacce (CS).
