A new pilot museum in South Tyrol for the SMART project and its technological innovations!

We receive and share the following news from the SMART project:

The Typewriter Museum Peter Mitterhofer in Parcines will be our South Tyrolean Pilot Museum

The Alpine area is rich in small thematic museums which tell the history, culture and ancient crafts of each territory. These are often marginal spots on tourist itineraries, with few visitors due to both their specificity and the difficulty of reaching them, given their geographical positioning.

The SMART project will upgrade four such smaller museums with innovative technologies (Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Webapp, Virtual Tour, Design for all), preserving the historical and cultural heritage of local communities and offer tourists new opportunities to discover and experience the Alpine area.

The consortium has committed itself to determining a pilot location in South Tyrol that will carry out at least one project-specific measure in accordance with the approved project with its own resources. In this regard, we have now found a great partner for the SMART project in the Peter Mitterhofer Typewriter Museum in Parcines: the museum is located in the middle of the historic village center of Parcines. It was erected by the municipality of Parcines in memory of their greatest son, the typewriter inventor Peter Mitterhofer. With over 2,000 objects, it contains one of the world’s largest collections of historical typewriters and is barrier-free accessible for all visitors.

Thanks to the multimodal design, the following planned measures in the museum will be usable for everyone, especially for visitors with disabilities:

  • Barrier-free website www.smart-museums.eu on the project and the VR-tour of the 4 pilot locations, to visit them also from a distance;
  • Interactive Webapp with an element of Augmented Reality;
  • Element in Virtual Reality;
  • Training of the museum staff to use and manage the common website;
  • Standard-compliant adaptation plan for the museum to remove and overcome architectural barriers;

Common technologies are used to connect the 4 pilot sites in a common web platform for a uniform virtual museum tour, which is open to further expansion. In cooperation with the Typewriter Museum Peter Mitterhofer in Parcines, we have already started to work out the implementation concept in South Tyrol. The measures are to be implemented in the coming year 2021.

The SMART project, of which ALDA is a partner, is funded by the European Union and Interreg V-A Italy-Austria 2014-2020.

Schreibmaschinenmuseum Peter Mitterhofer in Partschins wird unser Südtiroler Pilotmuseum

Im Alpenraum gibt es viele kleine thematische Museen, welche von der Geschichte, Kultur und vom alten Handwerk des jeweiligen Gebiets erzählen. Es handelt sich dabei oft um Orte, die abseits der touristischen Hauptrouten liegen und die aufgrund ihrer Spezifität und der Schwierigkeit, sie wegen ihrer geografischen Lage zu erreichen, weniger Besucher anziehen.

Im Rahmen des Projekts SMART werden vier solche kleinere Museen mit innovativen Technologien (Virtuelle Realität, Erweiterte Realität, Künstliche Intelligenz, Webapp, Virtual Tour, Design for all) aufgewertet, um das historische und kulturelle Erbe der lokalen Gemeinschaften zu bewahren und den Touristen neue Entdeckungsmöglichkeiten und Wissenserfahrungen anzubieten.

Dabei hat sich das Konsortium dazu verpflichtet, auch in Südtirol einen Pilotstandort zu bestimmen, der mit eigenen Mitteln zumindest eine projektspezifische Maßnahme gemäß dem genehmigten Einreichprojekt durchführt. Diesbezüglich haben wir mit dem Schreibmaschinenmuseum Peter Mitterhofer in Partschins jetzt einen tollen Partner für das Projekt SMART gefunden: Das Museum befindet sich mitten im historischen Ortskern von Partschins. Es wurde von der Gemeinde Partschins zum Gedenken an ihren größten Sohn, den Schreibmaschinenerfinder Peter Mitterhofer erreichtet. Mit über 2.000 Objekten beinhaltet es einer der weltweit größten Sammlungen an historischen Schreibmaschinen und ist für alle Besucher barrierefrei zugänglich.

Dank multimodaler Gestaltung werden die nachfolgenden geplanten Maßnahmen im Museum für alle inklusive nutzbar sein, insbesondere auch für Besucher mit Behinderungen:

  • Barrierefreie Internetseite www.smart-museums.eu zum Projekt und zur Besichtigung der 4 Pilotstätten auch aus der Ferne;
  • Interaktive Webapp mit einem Element in Erweiterter Realität (Augmented Reality);
  • Element in Virtueller Realität (Virtual Reality);
  • Schulung für das Museumspersonal zur Verwendung und Verwaltung der gemeinsamen Internetseite;
  • Normgerechter Adaptierungsplan für das Museum zur Beseitigung und Überwindung architektonischer Barrieren

Zum Einsatz kommen gemeinsame Technologien, um die 4 Pilotstätten in einer gemeinsamen Web-Plattform für einen einheitlichen virtuellen Museumsrundgang zu verbinden, der für eine weitere Expansion offen ist. In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Schreibmaschinenmuseum Peter Mitterhofer in Partschins haben wir bereits mit der Ausarbeitung des Umsetzungskonzeptes in Südtirol begonnen. Die Maßnahmen sollen im kommenden Jahr 2021 realisiert werden.

Il Museo delle macchine da scrivere “Peter Mitterhofer” di Parcines sarà il nostro museo pilota per l’Alto Adige

Nella regione alpina ci sono molti piccoli musei tematici che raccontano la storia, la cultura e gli antichi mestieri del proprio territorio, ma spesso si trovano al di fuori dei principali itinerari turistici e attirano meno visitatori a causa della loro specificità e/o della loro posizione geografica che li rende difficilmente raggiungibili.

Il progetto SMART si prefigge come obiettivo il potenziamento di quattro di questi musei con tecnologie innovative come la Realtà Virtuale, Realtà Aumentata, Intelligenza Artificiale, Webapp, Virtual Tour e Design for all, per preservare il patrimonio storico e culturale delle comunità locali e offrire ai turisti nuove opportunità di scoperta ed esperienza.

Il consorzio partenariale si è impegnato ad individuare un sito pilota anche in Alto Adige, che realizzerà con risorse proprie almeno una misura specifica del progetto, in conformità con quanto approvato. Dopo attenta selezione, abbiamo trovato un ottimo partner per il progetto SMART nel Museo delle macchine da scrivere “Peter Mitterhofer” di Parcines. Il museo si trova nel centro storico del paese ed è stato realizzato dal comune in onore del proprio concittadino, l’inventore della macchina da scrivere Peter Mitterhofer. Con oltre 2.000 oggetti esposti, vanta una delle più grandi collezioni di macchine da scrivere storiche del mondo ed è accessibile senza barriere a tutti i visitatori.

Grazie alla progettazione multimodale, le seguenti misure previste nel museo saranno accessibili a tutti, soprattutto ai visitatori con disabilità:

  • Sito web accessibile www.smart-museums.eu che presenta il progetto e permette la visita dei 4 siti pilota anche a distanza;
  • Webapp interattiva con un elemento in Realtà Aumentata;
  • Realtà Virtuale;
  • Formazione del personale del museo su come utilizzare e gestire il sito web condiviso;
  • Piano di adattamento del museo in base alle norme vigenti per rimuovere e superare le barriere architettoniche

Tecnologie comuni verranno utilizzate per collegare i 4 siti pilota in una piattaforma web comune per un tour virtuale dei musei aperto ad un’ulteriore espansione. In collaborazione con il museo delle macchine da scrivere Peter Mitterhofer di Parcines, abbiamo già iniziato ad elaborare il concetto di realizzazione in Alto Adige. Le misure saranno attuate entro l’anno prossimo.

ECO-CHANGE: active youth for global change in Strasbourg!

Over the summer, the ALDA office in Strasbourg carried out a special intensive project in the city: “ECO-CHANGE – Active Youth for Global Change”. With climate change being not just a major environmental and development-related challenge, but also a key factor affecting people’s decision to migrate and their ability to do it safely, the project aimed to promote inclusiveness and solidarity among young people with different cultural backgrounds and to raise their awareness on the existing link between migration and climate change.

In cooperation with the Stamtish Association, ALDA set up two different kinds of activities for the youth involved: a waste collection in various places of Strasbourg; and eco-responsible cooking workshops. On August 22nd and 29th, hence, around 20 motivated young people took care of the ecosystem of Heyritz Park and Citadelle Park, collecting hundreds of cigarette stubs and several bags of waste – while on August 23rd and 30th they met at La Petite Cantine to cook multicultural food together.

It was a great experience of intercultural promotion, collective caring for common issues, and an important occasion to stimulate young people’s active citizenship in Strasbourg. As it insisted on the fundamental role of youth in becoming “actors of change”, in addition, the project contributed to the achievement of some of the Sustainable Development Goals, namely SDG 10 – Reduced Inequalities; SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities; SDG 12 – Sustainable Consumption and Production; and SDG 13 – Measures relating to the fight against climate change.

Funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs through FONJEP, ECO-CHANGE was coordinated by ALDA together with Stamtish, a Strasbourg-based NGO whose mission is to promote the integration of people with migrant background through culinary and eco-responsible events.

ECO-CHANGE : des jeunes actifs pour le changement mondial à Strasbourg !

Au cours de l’été, le bureau de l’ALDA à Strasbourg a mené un intensif projet intensif spécial dans la ville : “ECO-CHANGE – Une jeunesse active pour le changement global”. Le changement climatique n’étant pas seulement un défi majeur lié à l’environnement et au développement, mais aussi un facteur clé qui influence la décision des gens de migrer et leur capacité à le faire en toute sécurité, le projet visait à promouvoir l’inclusion et la solidarité parmi les jeunes d’origines culturelles différentes et à les sensibiliser au lien existant entre la migration et le changement climatique.

En coopération avec l’association Stamtish, ALDA a mis en place deux types d’activités pour les jeunes concernés : une collecte des déchets dans différents lieux de Strasbourg et des ateliers de cuisine éco-responsable. Ainsi, les 22 et 29 août, une vingtaine de jeunes motivés ont pris soin de l’écosystème du parc Heyritz et du parc de la Citadelle, en collectant des centaines de mégots de cigarettes et plusieurs sacs de déchets – tandis que les 23 et 30 août, ils se sont retrouvés à La Petite Cantine pour cuisiner ensemble des plats de différentes cultures.

Ce fut une grande expérience de promotion interculturelle, de prise en charge collective de problèmes communs, et une occasion importante de stimuler la citoyenneté active des jeunes à Strasbourg. En insistant sur le rôle fondamental des jeunes pour devenir des “acteurs du changement”, le projet a en outre contribué à la réalisation de certains des objectifs de développement durable, à savoir le SDG 10 – Réduction des inégalités ; le SDG 11 – Villes et communautés durables ; le SDG 12 – Consommation et production durables ; et le SDG 13 – Mesures relatives à la lutte contre le changement climatique.

Financé par le Ministère français de l’Europe et des Affaires étrangères à travers le FONJEP, ECO-CHANGE a été coordonné par ALDA avec Stamtish, une ONG basée à Strasbourg dont la mission est de promouvoir l’intégration des personnes issues de l’immigration à travers des événements culinaires et éco-responsables.

ECO-CHANGE: giovani attivi per il cambiamento globale a Strasburgo!

Durante l’estate, l’ufficio ALDA di Strasburgo ha realizzato un progetto speciale nella città: “ECO-CHANGE – Gioventù attiva per il cambiamento globale”. Dato che il cambiamento climatico non è solo una grande sfida ambientale e di sviluppo, ma anche un fattore chiave che influenza la decisione delle persone di migrare e la loro capacità di farlo in modo sicuro, il progetto mirava a promuovere l’inclusione e la solidarietà tra i giovani con diversi background culturali e ad aumentare la loro consapevolezza sul legame esistente tra migrazione e cambiamento climatico.

In collaborazione con l’Associazione Stamtish, ALDA ha organizzato due diversi tipi di attività per i giovani coinvolti: una raccolta dei rifiuti in vari luoghi di Strasburgo; e laboratori di cucina eco-responsabile. Il 22 e 29 agosto, quindi, circa 20 giovani motivati si sono occupati dell’ecosistema del Parco di Heyritz e del Parco della Cittadella, raccogliendo centinaia di mozziconi di sigarette e diversi sacchi di rifiuti – mentre il 23 e 30 agosto si sono incontrati alla Petite Cantine per cucinare insieme cibo multietnico.

È stata una grande esperienza di promozione interculturale, di cura collettiva dei problemi comuni e un’importante occasione per stimolare la cittadinanza attiva dei giovani a Strasburgo. Insistendo sul ruolo fondamentale dei giovani nel diventare “attori del cambiamento”, il progetto ha inoltre contribuito al raggiungimento di alcuni degli Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile: SDG 10 – Riduzione delle disuguaglianze, SDG 11 – Città e comunità sostenibili, SDG 12 – Consumo e produzione sostenibili e SDG 13 – Misure per la lotta al cambiamento climatico.

Finanziato dal Ministero francese dell’Europa e degli Affari Esteri attraverso FONJEP, ECO-CHANGE è stato coordinato da ALDA insieme a Stamtish, una ONG con sede a Strasburgo la cui missione è quella di promuovere l’integrazione delle persone con un’esperienza di migrazione attraverso eventi culinari ed eco-responsabili.

ECO-CHANGE: активная молодежь за глобальные перемены в Страсбурге!

Летом офис ALDA в Страсбурге реализовал в городе специальный интенсивный проект: ”ECO-CHANGE – Активная молодежь для глобальных изменений”. Поскольку изменение климата является не только серьезной проблемой, связанной с окружающей средой и развитием, но и ключевым фактором, влияющим на решение людей мигрировать и их способность делать это безопасно, проект был направлен на поощрение инклюзивности и солидарности среди молодых людей с разным культурным происхождением и повышение их осведомленности о существующей связи между миграцией и изменением климата.

В сотрудничестве со Stamtish Association ALDA организовала два различных вида деятельности для вовлеченной мультикультурной молодежи: сбор мусора в разных местах Страсбурга; и семинары по экологически ответственному приготовлению пищи. Таким образом, 22 и 29 августа около 20 мотивированных молодых людей заботились об экосистеме парка Хейриц и парка Цитадель, собирая сотни окурков и несколько мешков с мусором, а 23 и 30 августа они встретились в La Petite Cantine, чтобы приготовить мультикультурную еду вместе.

Это был большой опыт межкультурного продвижения, коллективной заботы об общих проблемах и важный повод для стимулирования активной гражданской позиции молодых людей в Страсбурге. Он настаивал на фундаментальной роли молодежи в том, чтобы стать ”участниками перемен”, кроме того, проект способствовал достижению некоторых целей в области устойчивого развития, а именно ЦУР 10 – Снижение неравенства; ЦУР 11 – Устойчивые города и сообщества; ЦУР 12 – Устойчивое потребление и производство; и ЦУР 13 – Меры, связанные с борьбой с изменением климата.

ECO-CHANGE, финансируемая Министерством Европы и иностранных дел Франции через FONJEP, координировалась ALDA вместе с Stamtish, страсбургской неправительственной организацией, миссия которой заключается в содействии интеграции людей из числа мигрантов через кулинарные и экологические мероприятия.

EKO-PROMENA: aktivni mladi za globalne promene u Strazburu!

Tokom leta, kancelarija ALDA u Strazburu sprovela je u gradu poseban projekat: „EKO-PROMENA – Aktivna omladina za globalne promene“. S obzirom da klimatske promene nisu samo glavni izazov za životnu sredinu i razvoj, već i klјučni faktor koji utiče na odluku lјudi da migriraju i njihovu sposobnost da to bezbedno urade, projekat je imao za cilј promociju inkluzije i solidarnosti među mladima različitog kulturnog porekla i podižu njihovu svest o postojećoj vezi između migracija i klimatskih promena.

U saradnji sa udruženjem Stamtish, ALDA je uspostavila dve različite vrste aktivnosti za multikulturnu omladinu: sakuplјanje otpada u različitim delovima Strazbura; i ekološki odgovorne radionice kuvanja. 22. i 29. avgusta, dakle, oko 20 motivisanih mladih lјudi brinulo se o ekosistemu parka Hejric i parka Citadela, sakuplјajući stotine cigareta i nekoliko kesa otpada – dok su se 23. i 30. avgusta sastali u La Petite Cantine da zajedno kuvaju multikulturalnu hranu.

Bilo je to veliko iskustvo međukulturne promocije, kolektivne brige o zajedničkim pitanjima i dobra prilika za stimulisanje aktivnog građanstva mladih u Strazburu. Kako je insistirao na osnovnoj ulozi mladih u tome da postanu „akteri promena“, pored toga, projekat je doprineo postizanju nekih od ciljeva održivog razvoja (SDG), a to su: SDG 10 – Smanjene nejednakosti; SDG 11 – Održivi gradovi i zajednice; SDG 12 – Održiva potrošnja i proizvodnja; i SDG 13 – Mere koje se odnose na borbu protiv klimatskih promena.

Finansirano od francuskog ministarstva za Evropu i inostrane poslove preko FONJEP, ECO-CHANG, a koordinirano od strane ALDA-e zajedno sa Stamtish-om, nevladinom organizacijom sa sedištem u Strazburu čija je misija promocija integracije lјudi sa migrantskim poreklom kroz kulinarske i ekološki odgovorne događaje.

!أيكو-تشاينج شباب ناشط من أجل تغيير دولي في مدينة سترازبورغ

أنجز مكتب ألدا في مدينة ستراسبورغ, خلال موسم الصيف, مشروعا مكثفا وخاصا في المدينة: ” أيكو-تشاينج: شباب ناشط من أجل تغيير دولي في مدينة سترازبورغ”. مع التغيرات المناخية, التي لا تمثل تحديا كبيرا مرتبطا بالبيئة والتنمية فحسب, بل وكذلك عاملا أساسيا مؤثرا على قرار الأشخاص في الهجرة وقدرتهم على القيام بذلك بكل سلامة. يهدف المشروع إلى دعم منظومة الادماج الشامل والتضامن بين مختلف الفئات من الشباب, بمختلف خلفياتهم الثقافية, وتعزيز التوعية لديهم حول العلاقة القائمة بين الهجرة والتغيرات المناخية.

نظمت ألدا, بالتعاون مع جمعية ستامتيش, صنفين مختلفين من الأنشطة لفائدة الفئات الشبابية المتعددة الثقافات المعنية: رفع الفضلات في العديد من المناطق في مدينة ستراسبورغ, وورش طهي رفيقة للبيئة. وفي سياق متصل, تولى عدد ما يقارب 20 شاب, يحدوهم جميعا حماس فياض, يومي 22 و 29 أوت (أغسطس), القيام بنشاطين يتعلقان بالنظام البيئي في كل من منتزه هايرتس ومنتزه سيتادال, حيث رفعوا المئات من بقايا السجاير وكمية كبيرة من الأكياس. كما تجمع هؤلاء الشبان, يومي 23 و 30 أوت (أغسطس), في الكننين الصغيرة لإعداد, بشكل مشترك, عدد من الأطباق المتأتية من بلدان المتعددة الثقافات.

كانت هذه تجربة رائعة عكست الجهود المبذولة لتعزيز الأنشطة المتعددة الثقافات والتأكيد على ضرورة إيلاء مزيد من العناية للمسائل المشتركة, إضافة إلى توفيرها فرصة سانحة لتحفيز الشباب وتشجيعهم على اعتماد مبادرات المواطنة في مدينة ستراسبورغ. إضافة إلى تأكيده على الدور المحوري للشباب في التحول إلى “أطراف فاعلة في التغيير”, ساهم المشروع كذلك في تحقيق عدد من أهداف التنمية المستدامة, وخاصة الهدف 10 المتمثل في الحد من أوجه عدم المساواة, والهدف 11 المتمثل في مدن ومجتمعات محلية مستدامة, والهدف 12 المتمثل في الانتاج والاستهلاك المسؤولان, والهدف 13 المتمثل في ضرورة مكافحة التغير المناخي.

يتم مشروع إيكو تشاينج, الذي يحظى بتمويل من قبل الوزارة الفرنسية لأوروبا والشؤون الخارجية, من خلال صندوق التعاون للشباب والتربية الشعبية, بالتنسيق مع ألدا وجمعية ستامتيش, وهي منظمة غير حكومية تأخذ من مدينة ستراسبورغ مقرا لها, وتضطلع بمهمة تعزيز منظومة ادماج الأشخاص المهاجرين بواسطة التظاهرات التي تركز على الطهي في إطار يحترم المعايير البيئية.

Over the summer, the ALDA office in Strasbourg carried out a special intensive project in the city: “ECO-CHANGE – Active Youth for Global Change”. With climate change being not just a major environmental and development-related challenge, but also a key factor affecting people’s decision to migrate and their ability to do it safely, the project aimed to promote inclusiveness and solidarity among young people with different cultural backgrounds and to raise their awareness on the existing link between migration and climate change.

In cooperation with the Stamtish Association, ALDA set up two different kinds of activities for the youth involved: a waste collection in various places of Strasbourg; and eco-responsible cooking workshops. On August 22nd and 29th, hence, around 20 motivated young people took care of the ecosystem of Heyritz Park and Citadelle Park, collecting hundreds of cigarette stubs and several bags of waste – while on August 23rd and 30th they met at La Petite Cantine to cook multicultural food together.

It was a great experience of intercultural promotion, collective caring for common issues, and an important occasion to stimulate young people’s active citizenship in Strasbourg. As it insisted on the fundamental role of youth in becoming “actors of change”, in addition, the project contributed to the achievement of some of the Sustainable Development Goals, namely SDG 10 – Reduced Inequalities; SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities; SDG 12 – Sustainable Consumption and Production; and SDG 13 – Measures relating to the fight against climate change.

Funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs through FONJEP, ECO-CHANGE was coordinated by ALDA together with Stamtish, a Strasbourg-based NGO whose mission is to promote the integration of people with migrant background through culinary and eco-responsible events.

ECO-CHANGE : des jeunes actifs pour le changement mondial à Strasbourg !

Au cours de l’été, le bureau de l’ALDA à Strasbourg a mené un intensif projet intensif spécial dans la ville : “ECO-CHANGE – Une jeunesse active pour le changement global”. Le changement climatique n’étant pas seulement un défi majeur lié à l’environnement et au développement, mais aussi un facteur clé qui influence la décision des gens de migrer et leur capacité à le faire en toute sécurité, le projet visait à promouvoir l’inclusion et la solidarité parmi les jeunes d’origines culturelles différentes et à les sensibiliser au lien existant entre la migration et le changement climatique.

En coopération avec l’association Stamtish, ALDA a mis en place deux types d’activités pour les jeunes concernés : une collecte des déchets dans différents lieux de Strasbourg et des ateliers de cuisine éco-responsable. Ainsi, les 22 et 29 août, une vingtaine de jeunes motivés ont pris soin de l’écosystème du parc Heyritz et du parc de la Citadelle, en collectant des centaines de mégots de cigarettes et plusieurs sacs de déchets – tandis que les 23 et 30 août, ils se sont retrouvés à La Petite Cantine pour cuisiner ensemble des plats de différentes cultures.

Ce fut une grande expérience de promotion interculturelle, de prise en charge collective de problèmes communs, et une occasion importante de stimuler la citoyenneté active des jeunes à Strasbourg. En insistant sur le rôle fondamental des jeunes pour devenir des “acteurs du changement”, le projet a en outre contribué à la réalisation de certains des objectifs de développement durable, à savoir le SDG 10 – Réduction des inégalités ; le SDG 11 – Villes et communautés durables ; le SDG 12 – Consommation et production durables ; et le SDG 13 – Mesures relatives à la lutte contre le changement climatique.

Financé par le Ministère français de l’Europe et des Affaires étrangères à travers le FONJEP, ECO-CHANGE a été coordonné par ALDA avec Stamtish, une ONG basée à Strasbourg dont la mission est de promouvoir l’intégration des personnes issues de l’immigration à travers des événements culinaires et éco-responsables.

ECO-CHANGE: giovani attivi per il cambiamento globale a Strasburgo!

Durante l’estate, l’ufficio ALDA di Strasburgo ha realizzato un progetto speciale nella città: “ECO-CHANGE – Gioventù attiva per il cambiamento globale”. Dato che il cambiamento climatico non è solo una grande sfida ambientale e di sviluppo, ma anche un fattore chiave che influenza la decisione delle persone di migrare e la loro capacità di farlo in modo sicuro, il progetto mirava a promuovere l’inclusione e la solidarietà tra i giovani con diversi background culturali e ad aumentare la loro consapevolezza sul legame esistente tra migrazione e cambiamento climatico.

In collaborazione con l’Associazione Stamtish, ALDA ha organizzato due diversi tipi di attività per i giovani coinvolti: una raccolta dei rifiuti in vari luoghi di Strasburgo; e laboratori di cucina eco-responsabile. Il 22 e 29 agosto, quindi, circa 20 giovani motivati si sono occupati dell’ecosistema del Parco di Heyritz e del Parco della Cittadella, raccogliendo centinaia di mozziconi di sigarette e diversi sacchi di rifiuti – mentre il 23 e 30 agosto si sono incontrati alla Petite Cantine per cucinare insieme cibo multietnico.

È stata una grande esperienza di promozione interculturale, di cura collettiva dei problemi comuni e un’importante occasione per stimolare la cittadinanza attiva dei giovani a Strasburgo. Insistendo sul ruolo fondamentale dei giovani nel diventare “attori del cambiamento”, il progetto ha inoltre contribuito al raggiungimento di alcuni degli Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile: SDG 10 – Riduzione delle disuguaglianze, SDG 11 – Città e comunità sostenibili, SDG 12 – Consumo e produzione sostenibili e SDG 13 – Misure per la lotta al cambiamento climatico.

Finanziato dal Ministero francese dell’Europa e degli Affari Esteri attraverso FONJEP, ECO-CHANGE è stato coordinato da ALDA insieme a Stamtish, una ONG con sede a Strasburgo la cui missione è quella di promuovere l’integrazione delle persone con un’esperienza di migrazione attraverso eventi culinari ed eco-responsabili.

ECO-CHANGE: активная молодежь за глобальные перемены в Страсбурге!

Летом офис ALDA в Страсбурге реализовал в городе специальный интенсивный проект: ”ECO-CHANGE – Активная молодежь для глобальных изменений”. Поскольку изменение климата является не только серьезной проблемой, связанной с окружающей средой и развитием, но и ключевым фактором, влияющим на решение людей мигрировать и их способность делать это безопасно, проект был направлен на поощрение инклюзивности и солидарности среди молодых людей с разным культурным происхождением и повышение их осведомленности о существующей связи между миграцией и изменением климата.

В сотрудничестве со Stamtish Association ALDA организовала два различных вида деятельности для вовлеченной мультикультурной молодежи: сбор мусора в разных местах Страсбурга; и семинары по экологически ответственному приготовлению пищи. Таким образом, 22 и 29 августа около 20 мотивированных молодых людей заботились об экосистеме парка Хейриц и парка Цитадель, собирая сотни окурков и несколько мешков с мусором, а 23 и 30 августа они встретились в La Petite Cantine, чтобы приготовить мультикультурную еду вместе.

Это был большой опыт межкультурного продвижения, коллективной заботы об общих проблемах и важный повод для стимулирования активной гражданской позиции молодых людей в Страсбурге. Он настаивал на фундаментальной роли молодежи в том, чтобы стать ”участниками перемен”, кроме того, проект способствовал достижению некоторых целей в области устойчивого развития, а именно ЦУР 10 – Снижение неравенства; ЦУР 11 – Устойчивые города и сообщества; ЦУР 12 – Устойчивое потребление и производство; и ЦУР 13 – Меры, связанные с борьбой с изменением климата.

ECO-CHANGE, финансируемая Министерством Европы и иностранных дел Франции через FONJEP, координировалась ALDA вместе с Stamtish, страсбургской неправительственной организацией, миссия которой заключается в содействии интеграции людей из числа мигрантов через кулинарные и экологические мероприятия.

EKO-PROMENA: aktivni mladi za globalne promene u Strazburu!

Tokom leta, kancelarija ALDA u Strazburu sprovela je u gradu poseban projekat: „EKO-PROMENA – Aktivna omladina za globalne promene“. S obzirom da klimatske promene nisu samo glavni izazov za životnu sredinu i razvoj, već i klјučni faktor koji utiče na odluku lјudi da migriraju i njihovu sposobnost da to bezbedno urade, projekat je imao za cilј promociju inkluzije i solidarnosti među mladima različitog kulturnog porekla i podižu njihovu svest o postojećoj vezi između migracija i klimatskih promena.

U saradnji sa udruženjem Stamtish, ALDA je uspostavila dve različite vrste aktivnosti za multikulturnu omladinu: sakuplјanje otpada u različitim delovima Strazbura; i ekološki odgovorne radionice kuvanja. 22. i 29. avgusta, dakle, oko 20 motivisanih mladih lјudi brinulo se o ekosistemu parka Hejric i parka Citadela, sakuplјajući stotine cigareta i nekoliko kesa otpada – dok su se 23. i 30. avgusta sastali u La Petite Cantine da zajedno kuvaju multikulturalnu hranu.

Bilo je to veliko iskustvo međukulturne promocije, kolektivne brige o zajedničkim pitanjima i dobra prilika za stimulisanje aktivnog građanstva mladih u Strazburu. Kako je insistirao na osnovnoj ulozi mladih u tome da postanu „akteri promena“, pored toga, projekat je doprineo postizanju nekih od ciljeva održivog razvoja (SDG), a to su: SDG 10 – Smanjene nejednakosti; SDG 11 – Održivi gradovi i zajednice; SDG 12 – Održiva potrošnja i proizvodnja; i SDG 13 – Mere koje se odnose na borbu protiv klimatskih promena.

Finansirano od francuskog ministarstva za Evropu i inostrane poslove preko FONJEP, ECO-CHANG, a koordinirano od strane ALDA-e zajedno sa Stamtish-om, nevladinom organizacijom sa sedištem u Strazburu čija je misija promocija integracije lјudi sa migrantskim poreklom kroz kulinarske i ekološki odgovorne događaje.

Into the FOREST: safety in the workplace in forestry at the 2nd transnational meeting

On September 16th and 17th, 2020 the second transnational meeting of the FOREST project was held on the topic of “Safety in the workplace in forestry” in the beautiful setting of the Forestry Training Center Pilch in Austria. With the aim to exchange know-how and practices among project partners, the meeting was dedicated to security practices with a particular focus on the incidence of accidents in the agro-forestry field.

The event was composed of 2 sessions and it was opened by the Austrian partner of the project, and in particular by Mr Martin Krondorfer, Head of the Forestry Training Center Pilch, followed by Mr Franz Telser, who focused on the state of the art of accident prevention. Mr Norbert Weber then proceeded to provide all partners and participants of the workshop the necessary skills, abilities, and knowledge regarding company agreements, relevant standards and legislation for forest workers in Austria. The session was concluded by Mr Peter Konrad with an overview on the situation for Austrian forest entrepreneurs in terms of opportunities and challenges at both local and international level. In the end, all partners of the FOREST consortium met and discussed the implemented activities, and planned future strategies.

In the morning of September 17th, the second session consisted on an intensive, practical workshop in relation to safety regulations and innovative standards of working in experimental forests. A simulation was made of the felling and skidding processes as per Austrian standards: trainers and operators of the Forest Training Center showed partners how to safely operate while using chainsaws, according to the European Chainsaw Certificate (ECC) regulated by the European Forestry and Environmental Council (EFESC). More specifically, different methods of harvesting small trees of up to 20cm in diameter were addressed, as well as different methods of harvesting big trees of up to 80cm and more, with notes on technical help and different methods involving ropes or a hydraulic felling wedge.

Felling methods in deciduous trees were also examined, as well as the problem of ash die-back, rope-assisted felling methods and the processing of wind-thrown trees though at the time there were none in the forest.

It was a highly engaging occasion for the whole consortium – now looking forward to the next steps!

FOREST – Forestry Operators Reflecting on Equalising Skills and Training is a 24-month Erasmus+ project that wishes to respond to the fragmentation of competences in forestry management at the national and international levels, by giving rise to debate around the possibility to create a standard level of competences and skills of forestry workers and promoting innovation and professionalism by joint actions and initiatives.

During the last few months, the Covid19-related containment measures have highlighted the strong dependency of several Italian sectors on foreign labour – first on the list, the agrifood sector. Most of the seasonal workers employed in the agricultural sector in Southern Italy come from Bulgaria (55.000) and Romania (1.2 million). Of these, 57% are women. The migration of these workers is accompanied by dangers ranging from the lack of protection that would be provided only by a regular employment contract, to situations of psychological, social, economic and physical violence.

هذه مناسبة سانحة للترحيب بالمانح الجديد في شبكتنا ألا وهي وكالة التنمية الفرنسية. من خلال جمعية التضامن اللائكية, حيث تتولى وكالة التنمية الفرنسية دعم الجهود القائمة لإنجاز هذا المشروع الجديد من قبل ألدا وبالشراكة مع الكشافة التونسية. بالتالي, تصبح ألدا هي المنسق “لقطب الديمقراطية التشاركية والمحلية“, الذي سيتحول إلى أكبر شبكة فرنسية – تونسية للجمعيات المنضوية تحت برنامج الالتزام بالتشارور مع مختلف الأطراف!

انتظروا مزيدا من الأخبار… ابقوا معنا!

ALDA’s activities in Tunisia are multiplying fast! We are currently getting ready for the implementation of a new and diversified set of actions, within the framework of the “Pluri-Actors Concerted Pledge Program” (PCPA).

And this is also the occasion to welcome a new donor into our network, the French Development Agency (Agence Française de Développement – AFD): through the Association Solidarité Laique, in fact, AFD will support the realization of this new project, implemented by ALDA in partnership with Scouts Tunisia. ALDA will thus become the coordinator of the “Participatory and local democracy pole”, which will be the largest French-Tunisian network of “PCPA” associations!

More news to come… Stay tuned!

UNDEF in support of youth empowerment and civic participation

Building strategies and implementing effective grassroot actions is at the core of ALDA’s mission; nevertheless, without a strong network of co-workers and supporters, it can be very hard to realize. For this reason, we are extremely proud to announce that our work in Tunisia now has a new supporter: the United Nations Democracy Fund – UNDEF, which will specifically support the implementation of the project “Youth empowerment to build local democracy in Tunisia” (Autonomisation de la jeunesse pour construire une démocratie locale en Tunisie).

The project, conducted in partnership with the association “Tamkeen for Development”, has the overall objective to enhance the capacity of local Tunisian youth in mastering and managing the core concepts and methodologies linked to good governance and local cooperation.

More exactly, we foresee to boost the involvement of youth in local governance, through three main fields of action:

  1. Firstly, local youngsters will be trained in participatory democracy, learning when and how this technique is used;
  2. Then, following a field-study, the 12 principles of local good governance will be fostered;
  3. And, in parallel, we will act locally to improve the conditions for youngsters’ civic participation.

Once again, we heartily thank UNDEF for making this possible and for contributing to our mission in North Africa… we can’t wait to get out there!

Le FNUD en faveur de l’autonomisation des jeunes et de la participation civique

L’élaboration de stratégies et la mise en œuvre d’actions de terrain efficaces sont au cœur de la mission d’ALDA. Néanmoins, sans un solide réseau de collègues et de sympathisants, cela peut être très difficile à réaliser. C’est pourquoi nous sommes extrêmement fiers d’annoncer que notre travail en Tunisie a désormais un nouveau soutien : le Fonds des Nations unies pour la Démocratie – FNUD, qui soutiendra spécifiquement la mise en œuvre du projet “Autonomisation de la jeunesse pour construire une démocratie locale en Tunisie“.

Ce projet, mené en partenariat avec l’association “Tamkeen for Development“, a pour objectif général de renforcer la capacité de la jeunesse tunisienne locale à maîtriser et à gérer les concepts et les méthodologies de base liés à la bonne gouvernance et à la coopération locale.

Plus précisément, nous prévoyons de renforcer l’implication des jeunes dans la gouvernance locale, à travers trois principaux domaines d’action :

  1. Premièrement, les jeunes locaux seront formés à la démocratie participative, en apprenant quand et comment cette technique est utilisée ;
  2. Ensuite, après une étude sur le terrain, les 12 principes de la bonne gouvernance locale seront promus;
  3. Et, parallèlement, nous agirons localement pour améliorer les conditions de la participation civique des jeunes.

Une fois de plus, nous remercions chaleureusement le FNUD de rendre cela possible et de contribuer à notre mission en Afrique du Nord… nous sommes impatients d’y aller !

UNDEF a sostegno dell’empowerment dei giovani e della partecipazione civica

La costruzione di strategie e l’attuazione di efficaci azioni a partire dal basso sono al centro della missione di ALDA; tuttavia, senza una forte rete di collaboratori e sostenitori, può essere molto difficile da realizzare. Per questo motivo, siamo estremamente orgogliosi di annunciare che il nostro lavoro in Tunisia ha ora un nuovo sostenitore: Il Fondo per la Democrazia delle Nazioni Unite – UNDEF, che sosterrà specificamente la realizzazione del progetto “Autonomizzazione dei giovani per costruire una democrazia locale in Tunisia” (Autonomisation de la jeunesse pour construire une démocratie locale en Tunisie).

Il progetto, condotto in partenariato con l’associazione “Tamkeen for Development“, ha l’obiettivo generale di migliorare la capacità dei giovani tunisini locali di padroneggiare e gestire i concetti e le metodologie legate al buon governo e alla cooperazione locale.

Più precisamente, prevediamo di rafforzare il coinvolgimento dei giovani nella governance locale, attraverso tre campi d’azione principali:

  1. In primo luogo, i giovani locali saranno formati alla democrazia partecipativa, imparando quando e come questa tecnica viene utilizzata;
  2. Poi, a seguito di uno studio sul campo, saranno promossi i 12 principi del buon governo locale;
  3. E, in parallelo, si agirà a livello locale per migliorare le condizioni di partecipazione civica dei giovani.

Ancora una volta, ringraziamo di cuore l’UNDEF per aver reso possibile tutto questo e per aver contribuito alla nostra missione in Nord Africa… non vediamo l’ora di iniziare!

ФДООН в поддержку расширения прав и возможностей молодежи и гражданского участия

Выработка стратегий и реализация эффективных действий на низовом уровне – это суть миссии ALDA; тем не менее, без сильной сети сотрудников и сторонников это может быть очень трудно реализовать. По этой причине мы чрезвычайно рады сообщить, что у нашей работы в Тунисе появился новый спонсор: Фонд демократии Организации Объединенных Наций – UNDEF, который будет специально поддерживать реализацию проекта ”Расширение прав и возможностей молодежи для построения местной демократии в Тунисе” (Autonomisation de la jeunesse pour construire une démocratie locale en Tunisie).

Проект, осуществляемый в партнерстве с ассоциацией “Tamkeen for Development”, имеет общую цель – повысить способность местной тунисской молодежи усвоить и управлять основными концепциями и методологиями, связанными с надлежащим управлением и местным сотрудничеством.

Точнее, мы предполагаем активизировать вовлечение молодежи в местное управление посредством трех основных сфер деятельности:

  1. Во-первых, местная молодежь будет обучена принципам совместной демократии, узнав, когда и как используется этот метод;
  2. Затем, после полевого исследования, будут внедрены 12 принципов надлежащего местного управления;
  3. И параллельно мы будем действовать на местном уровне, чтобы улучшить условия для гражданского участия молодежи.

Еще раз мы сердечно благодарим UNDEF за то, что это стало возможным, и за вклад в нашу миссию в Северной Африке … нам не терпится поехать туда!

UNDEF pruža podršku za osnaživanje mladih i građansko učešće

Izgradnja strategija i sprovođenje efikasnih “grassroot” akcija je srž misije ALDA-e; bez obzira na to, bez jake mreže saradnika i pristalica, to može biti vrlo teško ostvarivo. Iz tog razloga, izuzetno smo ponosni što možemo da objavimo da naš rad u Tunisu sada ima novu podršku: Fond za demokratiju Ujedinjenih nacija – UNDEF, koji će posebno podržati sprovođenje projekta „Osnaživanje mladih za izgradnju lokalne demokratije u Tunisu“ (Autonomisation de la jeunesse pour construire une démocratie locale en Tunisie).

Projekat, sproveden u partnerstvu sa udruženjem “Tamkeen for Development“, ima opšti cilј da poveća kapacitete omladine na lokalnom nivou u Tunisu u savladavanju i upravlјanju osnovnim konceptima i metodologijama povezanim sa dobrim upravlјanjem i lokalnom saradnjom.

Planiramo da pojačamo uklјučivanje mladih u lokalnu upravu, kroz tri glavna polјa delovanja:

  1. Prvo, lokalni mladi će biti obučeni u participativnu demokratiju, učeći kada i kako se koristi ova tehnika;
  2. Zatim, nakon terenske studije, negovaće 12 principa lokalnog upravljanja;
  3. A paralelno ćemo delovati lokalno kako bismo pobolјšali uslove za građansko učešće mladih.

Još jednom se od srca zahvalјujemo UNDEF-u što je omogućio sve ovo i što je doprineo našoj misiji u severnoj Africi… jedva čekamo da stignemo tamo!

صندوق الأمم المتحدة يدعم مشاريع تمكين الشباب والمشاركة المدنية 

تتمثل المهمة الأساسية التي تضطلع بها ألدا في بناء الاستراتيجيات وتنفيذ الأنشطة الفاعلة التي تستند إلى قاعدة موسعة على المستوى المحلي. غبر أنه بدون توفر شبكة من العاملين والداعمين, الذين يشتغلون بشكل مشترك, سوف لن تكون هذه المهمة سهلة الانجاز. لهذا السبب, نحن فخورون جدا بالإعلان أن نشاطنا القائم في تونس الآن يتم بدعم من طرف متدخل جديد, ألا وهو: صندوق الأمم المتحدة للديمقراطية. سيتولى هذا الصندوق بالخصوص دعم كافة الجهود المبذولة لتنفيذ مشروع تمكين الشباب من أجل بناء منظومة الديمقراطية المحلية في تونس.

يهدف هذا المشروع, الذي يتم بالشراكة بين جمعية “تمكين من أجل التنمية“, أساسا إلى تعزيز قدرات الشباب التونسي على المستوى المحلي وتمكينه من امتلاك القدرة على التحكم في المفاهيم الأساسية وإدارة المنهجيات المرتبطة بالحوكمة الرشيدة والتعاون المحلي.

بشكل أوضح, نحن نتطلع إلى تعزيز عملية دمج الشباب صلب منظومة الحوكمة المحلية وذلك من خلال ثلاثة مجالات تشمل الأنشطة الأساسة التالية:

1. أولا, سيتلقى الشباب المحلي دورات تدريبية في مجال الديمقراطية التشاركية, وذلك بهدف إدراك متى وكيف يمكن استغلال هذه التقنية,

2. بعد ذلك, وعلى إثر الانتهاء من الدراسة الميدانية, سيتم اتخاذ كافة الاجراءات الضرورية لتعزيز 12 مبدإ المحددة لمنظومة الحومة الرشيدة محليا,

3. على إثر ذلك, وبالتوازي مع الجهود القائمة, سنتحرك على المستوى المحلي لتحسين ظروف الشباب ومساعدتهم على المشاركة في الحياة المدنية.

مرة أخرى, نود التعبير عن شكرنا الجزيل لصندوق الأمم المتحدة للدمقراطية على الجهود المبذولة لتسهيل مهمتنا وعلى مساهمته القيمة في الأنشطة التي نضطلع بها في منطقة شمال إفريقيا. نحن ننتظر بفارغ الصبر انطلاق الأنشطة المبرمجة هناك.

Rush finale a Schio per il rinnovo dei consigli di quartiere: partecipa agli incontri!

In occasione dell’evento pubblico svoltosi mercoledì 9 settembre 2020 alle ore 20 presso la Sala Turbine del Lanificio Conte di Schio (VI) a tema “Il quartiere comincia da te! Rigenerazione dei Consigli di Quartiere di Schio“, è stata presentata la fase 2 del processo partecipativo, ovvero il percorso di incontri che vede protagonisti i singoli quartieri in vista del prossimo rinnovo il 15 novembre.
L’obiettivo? Costruire ed elaborare una sorta di manifesto del quartiere condiviso da presentare alle elezioni con la lista dei candidati. Il percorso è strutturato in due appuntamenti per ciascuno dei sette quartieri scledensi: il primo per discutere delle criticità specifiche di ciascuno, con divisione in gruppi tematici per elaborare possibili sfide e soluzioni; il secondo, più deliberativo, con l’ambizione di trasformare le idee emerse nel primo incontro e redigere a partire da lì il programma per le elezioni.
«I consigli di quartiere sono una risorsa unica che da sempre contraddistingue la nostra Schio e prenderne parte è un’occasione per fare comunità attraverso la solidarietà, la cura del territorio e la democrazia diretta. Proprio per questo abbiamo deciso di avviare un percorso di coinvolgimento della popolazione supportato dalle competenze professionali di ALDA, così da incoraggiare una partecipazione consapevole e condivisa – dicono da Palazzo Garbin -. Questa seconda fase del percorso è molto importante e necessaria per definire chiaramente quali saranno gli obiettivi e gli impegni dei consigli per contribuire alla crescita della comunità cittadina».
In preparazione a tali cruciali passaggi, l’incontro del 9 sera ha incluso un lavoro di gruppo per la pianificazione, appunto, degli incontri da realizzarsi nei singoli quartieri, con un focus su:
  1. Programma: quali sono le problematiche del quartiere? Quali saranno i tavoli di discussione?
  2. Promozione: come coinvolgere quante più persone possibili agli incontri e quindi al voto?
  3. Logistica: conferma del calendario, organizzazione degli spazi, materiali utili, ecc.
Durante i 45 minuti di lavoro, i facilitatori di ALDA hanno supportato i referenti e i cittadini nel definire un piano d’azione completo per ogni quartiere: ora non resta che partecipare agli incontri!
Si prega di dare conferma al proprio quartiere per prenotare la propria partecipazione.
