    RegioStars 2012 - INCLUSIVE GROWTH:  O4O - Lifelong experience boosts ageing communities

    13/06/2012People in the EU are living longer than ever, and the proportion of the population aged over 55 is growing all the time. In some rural areas on the fringes of northern Europe, many pensioners live by themselves, and risk becoming isolated and marginalised if public transport and other services are not available and they cannot afford special care. In these remote regions, skilled staff, such as carers and nurses, are often hard to recruit and retain. The O4O project – Older people for Older people – co-financed by the European Union, responded to this challenge, using existing skills and experience within ageing communities. O4O shows older people how they can take responsibility for providing the services they need, and organises support across rural Scotland, Finland, Greenland, Northern Ireland and Sweden. At a time when public spending is under pressure in many parts of the EU, the project demonstrates how vital networks and facilities can be maintained in a way that also encourages older people to stay active and make an important contribution to society. Winner of the RegioStars 2012 Award, Inclusive Growth category

  • RegioStars 2012 : SÖM - A new start for deprived city neighbourhoods

    RegioStars 2012 : SÖM - A new start for deprived city neighbourhoods

    13/06/2012There is no simple solution for regenerating run-down urban areas. But in South East Malmö, Sweden, a neighbourhood with a population of 80 000, the SÖM project offered an outstanding example of how measures working together can bring new hope to a depressed community. The project started by analysing the needs of local people in four of Malmö’s poorer areas. This generated 10 projects on issues such as social integration, local growth and job creation. Partnership was key to success, so the project built a network of public and private participants; contacting businesses, universities, property owners, NGOs and community groups. Within a year, they created a coordination platform to ensure the best use of EU structural funding. Winner of Regiostars 2012 Award, Citystar category

    RegioStars 2010: Mikrofinansiering

    01/05/2010Denna video visar det vinnande projektet i RegioStars 2010 i kategorin Integration av invandrare och marginaliserade grupper i städer. Projektet, som etablerades 2008, är inriktat på att förbättra tillgången till finansiering för invandrarkvinnor som ofta stöter på svårigheter när det gäller att skaffa kapital för att starta eller utveckla egna företag. Projektets huvudsakliga syfte är att etablera ett varaktigt mikrofinansinstitut för att hjälpa dem att övervinna dessa hinder. Hittills har projektet stöttat 80 kvinnor som nyligen gett sig in i företagandet och bidragit till att 15 mikroföretag kunnat starta, samt skapat 20 nya tjänster.
