Context of the Project
in recent years, Europe has visibly been marked by terrorist attacks perpetrated in different capitals. Cities are the places where many religions and philosophical movements coexist, and where European citizens have been living in a climate of fear and distrust in recent years, public places of life are often guarded, militarized and targets of violence and dramatic episodes. In an attempt to address the issue of the growth of fundamentalism, mistrust and exclusion, increasing discrimination, European institutions have an open dialogue with religious and non-confessional, first referring to Article 17 of the Treaty on the Functioning of European Union (TFEU), introduced by the Lisbon Treaty, providing for the first time a legal basis for an open, transparent and regular work between EU institutions and religions, religious and philosophical and non-confessional.
Creativi108, inspired by the commitment of promoting tolerance and mutual respect as important features of the European Community, through the Aşîtî Games project aims to encourage the reduction of the impact of terrorist acts by providing a positive example of peaceful integration and peaceful coexistence among ethnic citizens and different religion. Generating, therefore, useful tools for the prevention of religious extremism among young people.
About the Project
A Bootcamp, proposed in Bologna (IT), will involve 15 young Youth Workers from Italy, Portugal, Spain and Poland, in a multi-religious context. The goal is a multidisciplinary intensive non-formal education laboratory and social innovation for the generation of Urban Games. their dissemination across Europe will be supported by a careful dissemination plan in four European cities, thanks to a media campaign on social networks and the involvement of local stakeholders.
Youth workers will be changemakers for their community, positive influencers and organizers of the Aşîtî Games events, created to play in urban spaces from twenty to fifty young people and at the same time in the city.They will become the bearers of a new methodology aimed at the prevention of religious integrity, active citizenship and participation in democratic and civil life in Europe.
The call is open for the following countries: Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain
Creativi108’s competences and expertise need to be inserted in the political and geographical context of Emilia-Romagna, a region always active in social projects. The projects developed in these years have been made in collaboration with many stakeholders: local entities, schools, local and national youth associations and European partners.
Currently, Creativi108 is backed by the Municipality of Bologna department of “Cittadinanza Attiva” (“Active Citizenship”) for the creation of youth self-entrepreneurship courses that envisage the use of socially innovative methods. This project is called SoJuEn – Social Junior Enterprise. The new Regulation promoted by Mayor Mr. Merola and the civic collaboration programmes envisaged in the project “Collaborare a Bologna” has set our Municipality as the precursor and promoter of ideas and initiatives for the citizens and the common good, as presented also in the Meeting that took place in Bologna to share their studies and practices about art therapies.
Moreover, Creativi108 has developed a path for active citizenship for a classroom of a secondary school including mobile phones digital photography and exploration of aggregation spaces of the city. It is involved with the Metropolitan City of Bologna and “Teatri Solidali” (“Solidarity Theaters”) network in a project regarding the inclusion of young people with disabilities. It is implementing an experimental project for the empowerment of dancers from all over Europe.
The core objectives of Creativi108 are the attention to social inclusion and the development of the territory in a more socially sustainable way.
