A network of professionals and catalysts contributing to a community where all stakeholders collectively generate social impact. We share resources, processes, languages and metrics. As an organisation, we support social impact through consulting, capacity building, project development and knowledge sharing.
Strategies for community empowerment in underprivileged neighbourhoods usually include calls for civic participation, however, the intended beneficiaries rarely contribute. If the needs and ideas of the most disadvantaged adults were taken into account, these could help to reduce their risk of social exclusion while providing benefit for the whole community. The project COmmunity ENgagement for Social Inclusion (COMENSI) aims to understand why marginalised adults do not participate and what tools and strategies could be developed to revert this situation. Project partners will work in five challenging EU urban neighbourhoods to create a network of adult educators and professionals to explore the problems and potential solutions.
