Programme: Europe for Citizens
Identifier: 562904-CITIZ-1-2015-1-HR-CITIZ-NT
Title: ACTive Communities for INclusion
Summary
The overall aim is to improve societal engagement in implementing Union policies & measures focusing on the inclusion of persons with disabilities and the elderly in local actions. The specific aims are: 1)to demonstrate to citizens how to effectively implement programs promoting social inclusion of disabled persons and the elderly; 2) to increase citizen awareness about daily challenges faced by persons with disabilities and the elderly and how EU policies positively impact citizens’ lives. The inclusion of persons with disabilities and the elderly in civic activities is a priority for the Muncipality of Cestica. Local non-profits providing services to disabled persons & the elderly found that current programs and individual services need to be adjusted in order to improve their inclusion in civic activities. Apart from this, it was found that the majority of residents regionally in Croatia are unaware of the issues facing persons with disabilities & the elderly; making it difficult to foster support for new initiatives. In this project, Cestica & its partners will exchange knowledge/best practices to improve current systems designed to enhance inclusion of persons with disabilities & the elderly in civic activities. This will be done by demonstrating innovative methods, presentations, public awareness activities & exchanges at 4 events. Citizens will become aware of issues facing the disabled and elderly, the advantages of EU policies for social inclusion and of volunteering opportunities. Professionals in public institutions & associations will gain know-how required to establish effective civic initiatives for the inclusion of disabled persons and the elderly at the local level, and new proposals will be drafted. The partners will build on the results of previous actions. A cooperation agreement finalized at the last event will detail joint future activities relating to the inclusion of persons with disabilities and elderly.
