Short description of the project:

The project will take place at “La Città dell’Utopia”, SCI Italia’s local project in Rome, which can be described as a social and cultural lab of active citizenship aiming for a new model of local and global development. The project originates from reflections on the social consequences of the current economic crisis, affecting to various extent all the European countries, Italy included. The economic crisis is generating high rates of youth unemployment and increasingly issues of social exclusion. The project, acknowledging volunteering as a tool for societal transformation and a key factor for improving social cohesion, will actively involve the EVS volunteers in SCI Italia’s activities (volunteering projects, raising awareness events etc.) for the social inclusion of youth with fewer opportunities, migrant people etc… The project is meant as a learning process for the EVS volunteers innvolved – which will be acknowledged throigh the Youthpass certificate –, while methodologies of non-formal learning will be used throughout the project to achieve its objectives.

SCI Italia’s “La Città dell’Utopia” project started in 2003 and is located in San Paolo neighborhood (via
Valeriano 3F – Rome), a popular suburban area inhabited mainly by elderly people, migrant families coming from Latin America, northeastern Europe, Asia and Africa, University students. The building hosts several informal groups and other associations working with/for transexual and transgender peoplem, migrants, promoting sustainable means of transportation etc…
The main activities carried out in La Città dell’Utopia are as following:

  • organizing and hosting of international workcamps, north/south trainings and international youth meetings;
  • raising awareness events;
  • organizing conferences, meetings, festivals, photo exhibitions, thematic meals; courses of music, group dancing, tai chi, African percussion, belly dance, language courses, ceramics, gardening; workshops on sustainable lifestyles such as recycling, composting, reduction in consumptions and renewable sources of energy, garbage recycling; promotion of participative forms of active citizenship.

Objectives of the proposed EVS project:

  • to involve youngsters in the promotion of international voluntarism as a practice of active citizenship, intercultural education and personal and social growth;
  • to spread news about the initiatives organized in Italy in order to promote intercultural respect and international solidarity;
  • to give volunteers the chance of actively participate in the implementation and development of a specific project, which is an opportunity of individual growth;
  • to facilitate relationships and boost cooperation among different informal groups and entities hosted by La Città dell’Utopia.

Volunteers will be involved in the following activities:

The volunteer will be involved in the following activities, mainly at “La Città dell’Utopia” in collaboration with another EVS volunteer that will start his service in September 2017:
