DIAGNÓSTICO LOCAL

Veneza

A vantagem da diversidade: a transferência de conhecimento sobre a integração dos migrantes

Dez diferentes localidades da Europa alargada partilharam os seus conhecimentos, experiências e boas práticas sobre a integração dos migrantes no passado dia 7 de Junho em Veneza, Itália, no âmbito da atividade internacional de três dias “Reequacionar a coesão urbana nas cidades europeias, “segunda etapa transnacional do projeto URGENT.

“URGENT – Regeneração Urbana, Rede Europeia de Cidades” (regeneração urbana, as cidades europeias de rede) é um projeto de dois anos financiado pelo Programa “Europa para os cidadãos” do programa, que visa promover a coesão social nas comunidades locais melhorando a integração dos migrantes através do desenvolvimento de políticas urbanas, da promoção do diálogo intercultural e o uso de áreas públicas.

O evento foi uma oportunidade para compartilhar soluções criativas que visam introduzir mudanças positivas a nível local. Autarquias, associações da sociedade civil, académicos e cidadãos comuns compartilharam seus saberes destacando a necessidade de uma ação por abordagens que envolvam simultaneamente vários atores locais, colocando em rede os recursos e os conhecimentos que já existem em todos essas comunidades.

Intervenientes internacionais e locais tiveram a oportunidade de debater e de partilhar experiências no seminário público realizado no dia 7 junho. A sessão de abertura foi moderada por Laura Fregolent, Universidade IUAV de Veneza, com contributos de Veronique Daugent, chefe da unidade cultural do Bureau Regional da UNESCO para Ciência e Cultura na Europa, Luisella Pavan-Woolfe, responsável pelo Bureau do programa do Conselho da Europa em Veneza, Giuseppe Aiello, Representante da região de Veneto, e Aldo Xhani, coordenador de programas de cidadania europeia da ALDA, que destacou a necessidade de ser desenvolvido um modelo governança como um elemento fundamental para promover eficazmente a integração dos migrantes nas nossas comunidades.

Josefina Perez Espino de RECFronteras, compartilhou uma perspectiva interessante sobre o problema das migrações do outro lado do mundo. Ela veio participar na conferência para abordar as semelhanças e diferenças entre o processo de migração nos EUA-México e na Europa. Sob a moderação de Elena Ostanel, SSIIM Cátedra UNESCO da Universidade IUAV de Veneza, o segundo painel contou com os contributos de Marcello Balbo, diretor da cátedra SSIIM UNESCO, Universidade IUAV de Veneza, de Lorna Muscat, representante da SOS Malta e coordenadora do ” Caminho de migração “projeto LADDER, e Francesca Lionetti, representante programa Cidades Interculturais do Conselho da Europa.

A última sessão, presidida por Giovanna Marconi, SSIIM Cátedra UNESCO da Universidade IUAV de Veneza, foi dedicada à valorização de políticas locais específicas identificadas como boas práticas. Natalia Maramotti vereadora do Município de Reggio Emilia com os pelouros da segurança, da cultura, da legalidade e da cidade histórica, Gianfranco Bonesso, representante do município de Veneza, Jean-François Maljean, coordenador do projeto do município de Etterbeek (Bélgica) e Alexander Van Leuven, coordenador do projeto da identidade positiva e educação social do município de Mechelen (Bélgica), apresentou exemplos e histórias de sucesso.

COMUNICAÇÃO DA ALDA

I hope this email finds you well.

We would like to share with you more details about our upcoming international event in Mostar on the 28-29 November. Please, find attached the info-pack with detailed information on how best to reach Mostar.

We decided to dedicate 2 full working days to the seminar. Also, because Mostar is a bit more complicated to be reached you will have 2 full days dedicated for your travel. Arrival is foreseen on the 27th November in the evening and departure on the 30th in the morning. Please, see agenda as to organise yourself.
We strongly advise you to book your tickets as soon as possible. We remind that the travel costs will be reimbursed up to EUR 280.

In regards to the preparation process: we kindly ask to prepare a short PPT presentation with maximum 6 slides describing the design of the local processes. You can find further details on this in the info-pack.

Last, but not least, please register at the following link by 15 November the latest:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1r6sZZAQbNsEnuvScoxOeDd0SdJAi3SxEqI482M_g2_M/viewform?edit_requested=true

I also seize the opportunity to inform you that unfortunately I will not be with you in Mostar. More than this, I will be leaving ALDA to start a new professional adventure at the Migration Policy Group, still here in Brussels, as of next week. It has been a real pleasure working with you all and I hope we can keep in touch also in future, migration being a topic of interest to us all.

Mihaela, whom you met in Venice, is the official project manager of URGENT. You are in very good hands! Please feel free to communicate directly with her for all project related issues.

 

All the best to you all and hope to see you soon again!

Aldo

Presentation of the project

 

 

Project:

URGENT: Urban Re-Generation: European Network of Towns

 

Time span:

1st September 2016 – 31st August 2018

 

 

Partnership:

Coordination of the project                                                                       

  • ALDA – the European Association for Local Democracy, France

 

Associated partners

Aim:

In today’s Europe we are reaching alarming levels of urban fragmentation, inequality and structural socio-spatial divisions within our cities, which are feeding extremisms and radicalised behaviour. The most vulnerable part of the population is often given no other choice but concentrate in disadvantaged areas or neighbourhoods where social exclusion and deprivation usually overlap with high level of cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity, further challenging an already weak social cohesion. Increasingly marginalized and stigmatised, these areas and their inhabitants are pushed into a vicious circle of poverty. New physical and symbolic boundaries emerge within European cities from growing xenophobia, intolerance and discriminations even before those built at European internal and external borders. Through a bottom-up approach aiming at promoting city-level and local awareness-raising about the urgent need for establishing new intercultural connections among inhabitants of marginalized multi-ethnic neighbourhoods/areas and population of central areas, URGENT project aims at tackling growing fear of immigration and to overcome related misleading stereotypes, which feed euroscepticism and undermine fragile European cohesion.

 

 

Objectives:

The main objectives of this project are:

  • To create spaces of discussion and mutual learning among citizens from different socio-cultural background and from different countries of Europe;
  • To foster active citizenship and co-creation of policies and services in local societies, particularly for citizens often excluded from the decision-making processes;
  • To enhance the capacity of local institutions of being “multipliers” in their own communities in order to engage a wide range of stakeholders;
  • To provide a new impetus to the EU enlargement process, contributing to the establishment of a long-lasting thematic network of cities that are strongly active and committed as key players in Europe.

 

 

Main activities:

URGENT foresees 10 steps, having impact both at the local and at the European level:

Through a collaborative workshop, all partners will identify conflicting areas in partner cities and will be trained on techniques of territorial analysis (see local paths-pilot projects).

 

Expected results:

All participants are aware about:

  • migration/refugees processes at UE level
  • the causes and effects of stigmatisation processes and radicalisation patterns at local level
  • conflicts, xenophobia, intolerance and discrimination aroused by the presence of migration/refugees in their cities

Time span: 21/05/2017- 31/10/2017

 

Content:

Thanks to the training acquired, partners will develop a pilot project idea to be implemented at local level in targeted areas. A citizens’ consultation will be organised in each city to discuss and design the pilot project. Different participatory tools previously acquired will be used according to local priorities. Pilot projects are dedicated to reduce stigmatisation, promote intercultural dialogue among diversities, and prevent radicalisation and Euroscepticism at city level.

 

Expected results:

  • Pilot projects at local level are defined trough the promotion of active citizenship processes
  • Target areas are taken into account by local authorities that develop pilot projects to promote intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding
  • In each city, local communities become active in promoting the social cohesion of local communities in most fragile city areas
  • In targeted areas, radicalisation behaviour and Euroscepticism are prevented trough the definition of community based activities

 

Partners concerned:

Content:

Partners discuss about the pilot projects ideas developed at local level using SWOT analysis to revise them. Pilot projects will be adjusted according to guidelines developed during the 2nd international event. Each partner presents the local path experience in thematic focus groups on:

  • the effect of the local welfare constraints on social cohesion in cities
  • the link between social exclusion and Euroscepticism
  • the effect of community based activities in building intercultural dialogue.

Content:

In each partner city, pilot projects are updated thanks to the suggestions collected during the second international event. Then, pilot projects are implemented to overcome stereotypes about immigrants by deconstructing past and present processes of stigmatisation; pilot projects will be able to build counter narratives, hampering integration and mutual understanding in targeted areas. Pilot projects in marginal areas of the city will exemplify a way to work against xenophobia and intolerance.
