IN-Dipendente – don’t play with the game!

“INDEPENDENTE – let’s take care of ourselves” is a 12-month project that aims to counter the spread of pathological addictions by developing a new approach that fosters direct collaboration between the world of volunteering and local institutions in a PPP (Public-private partnership) perspective. It also creats a network of associations that deal with different (but sometimes linked) addictions to promote a multidisciplinary collaboration. Translated with (free version) The project develops along 2 main lines of activity, namely the fight against gambling addiction and alcohol abuse, and may serve as a sort of pilot project to test this approach also for future initiatives related to addiction.

CIRCLE – Circular Citizenship for a Long-Lasting Europe

CIRCLE Project, co-funded by the Europe for Citizens Programme 2014 – 2020, introduces the concept of “circular citizen” to define a citizen capable of activating a “sustainable thinking” on Europe, a citizen able to read and understand EU history, even recent, highlighting positive factors and treasuring negative ones, in practice “recycling” them. Within the Twinning between Sarmede and Cocumont, the project intends to re-elaborate past experiences of emigration, effort, suffering and distance from loved ones in order to better understand how difficult it is to foster dialogue between citizens from different countries, but also how in the long run this can enrich not only the protagonists of these events, but also their areas of origin. From the circular economy, then, to circular citizenship.
