    Training and information on EU programs and funds for social
    inclusion and active citizenship initiatives
    Slovenia – 25/29 October 2007
    50 years after the signature of the Treaty of Rome and despite of the goodwill of the Signers, the concept of
    “European citizenship” looks far from being part of the daily life of European citizens.
    European Institutions continue to be often perceived as something too far: more than opportunities, Europe
    and its Institutions are perceived as «another wheel» of bureaucracy: «Eurocracy» more than “European
    The European Union, its Institutions and its programs and initiatives can indeed be a source of support for
    many activities run by active civil society in Europe, in particular those active in the field of social work
    through voluntary activities.
    Quite often, European citizens are not aware of the links between daily life and activities of
    European Institutions. This is part of a vicious circle to be broken: people don’t know rights and
    opportunities offered by Europe and therefore don’t look for information and the less they express
    an active citizenship and therefore the less they know.
    The project
    A network of NGOs working in Italy, Slovenia and Spain is currently running a project under the “Europe for
    Citizens” which include different meetings in order to present how European Union influence our daily life
    and how its actions can be “used” to support active citizenship activities run by non-profit organizations.
    Our project aims to break the vicious circle mentioned above: instead of «waiting for citizens
    looking for information» we want promote an «information that goes toward the citizens» and by
    this mean promote their rights, their participation and active citizenship.
    This training
    The training and information session to be run in October will provide the participants with information and

    first level skills to use different European programs in order to support and co-fund their social activities. In
    particular 4 different issues will be addressed, in relation to specific European initiatives:
    -Youth (Youth in action program)
    -Active citizenship (Europe for Citizens program)
    -Social inclusion (Progress program)
    -Social inclusion not only in Europe: International solidarity and Development issues EIDHR
    European instruments for democracy and human rights and ENPI – European neighborhood policy
    The participant’s profile
    From what said it is evident that we aim to particularly involve members, staff and volunteers of social
    organizations who promote the participation and active citizenship by mean of volunteering and
    informal learning processes. All the participants are requested to act, once back in their
    country/organizations, as multiplier, sharing the info and the acquired skills inside their organization
    in order to improve their effectiveness and the impact of their activities at local level.
    Due to EU rules, the participation is foreseen for citizens coming from the current 27 EU
    member countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland,
    France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latria, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands,
    Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom
    There is no age restriction for the participants.
    We expect to have in the training 21 participant from countries other than Slovenia and 8 from

    insegnare inglese (ma non solo)

    In questo blog ci sono informazioni e offerte per insegnare italiano, ma la lingua italiana è meno richiesta della lingua inglese. Quindi per chi conosce bene l'inglese o lo può insegnare aggiungo qualche sito utile al proposito. La Cina è un paese con numerosissime offerte per insegnanti di inglese e lì difficilmente un candidato con buona preparazione di inglese viene scartato. Anche in Corea del Sud si cercano molti insegnanti di inglese ma gli stranieri che insegnano lì devono avere un passaporto con cittadinanza di paesi anglofoni.
    (questi ultimi due sono quasi solo per insegnare inglese in Cina e Taiwan)
