Local Activities I

Good Practices

The aim of this activ­i­ty was to iden­ti­fy exist­ing good prac­tices at local lev­el where urban art is used as a socio-edu­ca­tion­al tool for pro­mot­ing the inclu­sion of young migrants and/or groups at risk of exclu­sion, whose expe­ri­ence can be extrap­o­lat­ed and used with our targe group.

These good prac­tices can be seen as a ref­er­ence and inspi­ra­tion for future activ­i­ties of our and oth­er organ­i­sa­tions. They can also be adapt­ed to work oth­er top­ics of rel­e­vance with young peo­ple, local pop­u­la­tion and oth­er tar­get groups.

In the final e‑Book of our project, you are going to find more detailed infor­ma­tion of all these good practices.
