Social & Nature

A SHORT STORY ABOUT THE PROJECT

People who are socially, economically, culturally, politically, institutionally or otherwise marginalized are particularly vulnerable to climate change as well as to some adaptation and mitigation strategies.
(IPCC – Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).

Social& Nature is a project, developed by 6 partners in 4 different European countries (Belgium, France, Greece, Italy), funded under Erasmus + Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training.

Its aim, through the training of learning mediators and social workers, is the prevention and climate changes’ mitigation of environmental disasters, which impact significantly on groups that already are socially, economically and culturally vulnerable.

It has 2 specific objectives:

– Create a transnational consortium to build a European framework for the training of trainers working in the social sector (social policies and assistance for training and job placement) and act as mediators and facilitators towards vulnerable groups, strengthening their ability to deal with the problem of natural hazards and the consequences of climate change.

– Produce didactic tools, simple and easily transferable in the various territorial contexts to be used by training centres and institutions that are responsible for social policies.
