Third Transnational Project Meeting and Training of the INCLUDATE project in Palermo

Jul 07, 2023

Migration Linked project:

On June 12-13-14-15, 2023 at the premises of Moltivolti Co-Working and the magnificent Palazzo Cutò and Bocs in Bagheria, Palermo (🇮🇹), ALDA participated at the third Transnational Partner Meeting within the Includate – Educating for Inclusion project: funded by the Erasmus+ Programme and led by the German organization Comparative Research Network, the project aims directly at the inclusion of people with fewer opportunities, specifically migrants. 

The Includate project identifies the need for capacity building to enable migrant associations to be involved in inclusion and diversity strategies, starting with a careful analysis of the needs of the communities involved.
Its main focus is to enhance the inclusion of individuals with limited opportunities, especially migrants who often face intersectional marginalisation due to factors like ethnic discrimination and socio-economic deprivation.

During the meeting, which took place on June 12, partners finally welcomed in person the new partner Konkáv from Hungary (🇭🇺). Moreover, the event has also been an opportunity to coordinate the work among partners and prepare for the projects’ next steps and challenges.

In the following days the Training was held at palazzo Cutò and Bocs, in Bagheria (🇮🇹), specifically on June 13-14 and 15, 2023.

During the first part, the training was entirely focused on strategy-making processes as well as the LogFrame Approach (LFA) for the action plan building process. This approach is a systematic, visual approach to designing, executing and assessing projects which encourages users to consider the relationships between available resources, planned activities, and desired changes or results.

The second day of the training was aimed at analysing EU policies within the framework of the Russian aggression against Ukraine, while using the Problem Tree method. This method helps to find solutions by mapping out the anatomy of cause and effect around an issue in a similar way to a Mind map, but with more structure. 

On the third and last day, partners had the opportunity to discuss and reflect alternative methods for the action plan building process: some practical examples are the Theory of Change, Impact Pathways, Kanva.

The event ended with the “Through my eyes” Tour in Ballarò (🇮🇹), held by a  young man from Gambia, Mr. Malick; afterwards, partners participated to a storytelling event organised by ALDA in collaboration with the organisation CESIE

Partners look forward to gathering again at the end of November for the next Transnational Partner Meeting and Multiplier Event in Strasbourg (🇫🇷).
