CIVACT – Promoting Civic Engagement

  • Desde: 2018
  • Contacto: catarina.lameira@apdes.pt

The CIVACT project focuses on empowering and encouraging the participation in their community of a sample of youth (aged 16-25) with migration background and/or who are at risk of social exclusion from five different urban areas: Hamburg (DE), Palermo (IT), London (UK), Gothenburg (SE), and Porto (PO).
This project comprehends five partners – Lawaerz Stiftung (DE), Bond of Union (IT), Mapping for Change (UK), Goteborgs Stad (SE) and APDES (PT) – and is funded by the European Comission.

CIVACT has four specific objectives:

  • To promote the participation of hard-to-reach youths in their community through the development of new tools and participatory methodologies;
  • To provide youth workers with new operational supporting tools for their activities with hard-to-reach groups;
  • To provide local actors responsible for district management with understanding about participatory methods to engage young people in the creation of proposals for the improvement of their neighbourhoods.
  • To create a network of organizations and local stakeholders adopting/testing the CIVACT Intellectual Outputs.
