Pretvaranje ciljeva održivog razvoja u konkretne akcije - primeri naših projekata

Od 1. do 17. UN su definisale ciljeve održivog razvoja koji treba da vode naše postupke i postanu naš kompas. Ipak, kako te ciljeve možemo pretvoriti u akcije, čineći ih opipljivima i razumljivima svima nama? Naravno da je to veliki izazov, ali uz malo truda sve je moguće. Stoga, prilikom razvijanja svojih projekata, , ALDA ima na umu te razvojne ciljeve i dizajnira svoje aktivnosti kako bi, ne samo podigla svest o njima, već i podstakla promene i promovisala konkretne akcije za njihov uspeh. Pogledajmo izbliza!

 Na primer, cilj održivog razvoja 4 označava „kvalitetno obrazovanje“, koje ide od inkluzivnog učenja do dobrog obrazovanja, kao i podršku celoživotnom učenju. ALDA-in projekat Piece, samo da pomenemo jednu inicijativu, namenjen je razumevanju i reagovanju na potrebe različitih zajednica u Evropi kroz obuke i edukaciju. Drugim rečima, osnaživanje ljudi davanjem alata i znanja kako bi postali vredan resurs za lokalna društva. Stoga će dizajniranjem ovog projekta i uključivanjem različitih partnera konačni ishod biti promocija pozitivnih i dugotrajnih promena, dok će cilj održivog razvoja 4 postati opipljiv koncept.

ALDA ima na umu ciljeve održivog razvoja i dizajnira svoje aktivnosti kako bi promovisala konkretne akcije za njihov uspeh

But let’s continue with other goals. The SDG 16 tackles “peace, justice and strong institutions”, concepts which are pretty often used and discussed,especially the fist and the second, but how we can really address them is a different matter. Following the example above-mentioned, starting from the Schumann Declaration, the DESIRE project is willing to raise awareness on this milestone in European Union history. In detail, the project will stimulate participants to reflect on EU values – be they peace, justice and solidarity – by using different artistic and visual tools. 

As the case of the two previous projects, also EPIC project is directed to understand and address the challenges posed by the integration of migrants in medium-sized realities. And how is this connected to SDGs? Here we come: not only SDG 10 but also 11 and 17 are taken into account. SDGs are in fact strictly related to one-another spurring an holistic approach, a circular action that involves all of these goals. In fact, EPIC project aims at “reducing inequalities” (SDG 10), by supporting and developing “sustainable cities and communities” (SDG 11), within which migrants will settle and actively join. Furthermore, by including different actors – from municipalities, to universities and CSOs, EPIC has turned goal 17 on “partnership for goals” as a concrete and successful reality.

Finally, our projects also focus on the environment and planet. Here we would like to introduce to you FOREST project. It goes without saying that the aim of this initiative is within the forestry sector.  Thus, it is willing to increase and unify the fragmented knowledge as far as forestry management concerns, both at national and international levels. In this case, the project has been tailored having SDGs 13 and 15 in mind. The former is intended to fight climate change, while the latter focuses on “life on land”, that means acting in order to protect ecosystems and biodiversity. By improving the level of professionalism and competitiveness of forest workers at cross-border level for example, the idea of the project is to safeguard these green realities which are the habitat for different species and are essential for actors as far as climate concerns.

These are a bunch of examples of ALDA projects, but if you check our page you will find plenty of projects, each of them related to specific SDGs.

We are also delighted to share with you the latest issue of the SDG Watch Europe Newsletter, on which you can find several articles from which to draw inspiration, including news on our projects!

Projekat MIICT: širi koraci ka rešenjima za integraciju migranata sa omogućenim ICT-om

Kako odnos među evropskim društvima i migrantima učiniti inkluzivnijim? Da bismo odgovorili na ovo pitanje, želeli bismo da podelimo sa vama pouzdane dokumente objavljene u okviru projekta MIICT. Stoga su potonji već predstavili preporuke raznim akterima - bilo da su oni donosioci odluka, lobističke grupe i druge interesne grupe. Objavljen u martu 2020. godine, prvi politički dokument istakao je devet ključnih oblasti politike kojima će se baviti u kontekstu integracije migranata u Evropi: počev od zaposlenosti, socijalne inkluzije i anti-rasizma, pa sve do stanovanja, zdravstva, obrazovanja, trgovine ljudima, pravnih pitanja kao i informaciono-komunikacione tehnologije. Pored toga, osim što je izneo nekoliko sugestija u vezi sa ovim oblastima, takođe podvlači preporuke za države za Španiju, Italiju i Kipar.

Devet ključnih oblasti politike kojima će se baviti u kontekstu integracije migranata u Evropi

U novije vreme, u martu 2021. godine, projekat MIICT izdao je drugi politički dokument kako bi predstavio dalje preporuke o postojećim politikama u vezi sa migracionim pitanjima. Kapitalizacijom nalaza iz svog prvog dokumenta, kao i na onim iz zajedničkog okruglog stola za migracionu politiku, MIICT je organizovao ovu akciju u saradnji saH2020- „sestrinskim“ projektima (REBUILD, NADINE, MICADO, EASYRIGHTS i WELCOME). Diskusije za okruglim stolom dogodile su se između 14. i 16. oktobra 2020. godine i dovele su do objavljivanja Zajedničke beleške o migracionoj politici..

Drugi politički dokument MIICT-a temelji se na beloj knjizi i izražava dalje preporuke u vezi sa MIICT-om. Naglašava:

  • značaj saradnje i koordinacije među zainteresovanim stranama i organizacijama, a ne pojedincima;
  • zamah digitalizacije javnih usluga povezanih sa pandemijom COVID-19.

Fokusira se na to kako digitalna transformacija i postojeća tehnološka rešenja (npr. Prevodilačke usluge) mogu rezultirati višeslojnim ICT rešenjima koja poštuju kulturnu raznolikost među krajnjim korisnicima. U tom kontekstu, takođe se bavi pitanjem finansiranja i drugim opcijama za održivost rešenja. U dokumentu se zaključuje da Evropska komisija treba da odigra ključnu ulogu u pružanju podrške uvođenju i održivosti. Konačno, drugi politički dokument je predstavio moguće prepreke i izazove koji se moraju uzeti u obzir za dalji razvoj politike.

Sledeći korak biće fokusiran na distribuciju i širenje preporuka o politici. Budući okrugli stolovi za lokalnu i evropsku politiku biće održani tokom 2021. godine za reviziju i proširivanje preporuka u svetlu ICT rešenja.
