In November, in Galbiate, Italy, representatives from 26 organizations met for the Annual Meeting of the Network of Associazione Joint with the final goal of creating a very important document. InfinityGreece was represented by Vasiliki Tsiakiridou, a member of the Board of the social enterprise.
The position paper “Improving the Inclusion of Highly Vulnerable People in International Mobility | ESC and Erasmus Plus” was created within 3 days full of workshops, non formal education and exchange of opinions.
The organizations involved have experience in carrying out mobility projects under the Erasmus+ and Solidarity Corps programmes. The consortium consists of a number of 26 from 14 countries and has focused on the issue of inclusion and in particular focusing on the inclusion of groups of young people who are in extremely vulnerable situations and could benefit from a participation in an ESC or Erasmus+ project.
Which are the Highly Vulnerable Groups?
The consortium has agreed on a common understanding of the concept of highly vulnerable groups of young people.
A highly vulnerable young person is a person that is living in a situation of vulnerability and who is facing an overlapping of potential exclusion factors, of which at least one is a long-term or permanent condition. Their involvement in mobility activities implies a need for a long term structural support system to be put in place by all partners in the project and promoted by National Agencies and European stakeholders.
