In the past year, MSHA has participated in a number of European projects, including:
Oltre le porte:
A project to give young people the opportunity to develop a new physic garden in Apulia, Italy. The garden incorporated ideas for climate change in South Italy and environmental protection. In the photograph to the left, young people from Luton are joined by participants from Greece, Bulgaria, Spain, Romania and Italy.
Social participa(c)tion project
This project saw MSHA carrying out the role as international trainer for small and medium sized social organisations in Italy. In two mini-projects, MSHA trained staff from 12 different organisations in “Marketing for small organisations” and “Human resources for small organisations”. In the photograph here are representatives from local education, non-government organisations, the circus and private companies.
Bike Stop for social inclusion:
Bike-stop for social inclusion: “from guest to host” is a social innovation project that favours the inclusion of people in society at risk of exclusion.
The project is presented by a partnership of organizations from Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, Serbia, Germany and the United Kingdom. The main project work is the development of a shared innovative model of social inclusion, in contexts where it is becoming increasingly difficult to identify employment opportunities. The partners intend to experiment with “active reception models” especially those that provide daily training on the themes of cycle tourism where there are opportunities for non-formal and informal learning.
