Komentarz aplikującegoThe concept for the project was developed as a result of a contact seminar held in Vilnius from the 14th to 16th of October 2015. During the seminar it was possible for potential partners to meet and discuss issues which they felt were and would be impacting on their institutions in the near future and to which a common project was needed to best analyse and share experiences. The project will deal with specific issues related to the integration of members(best word?) into our respective communities. The project will aim to provide citizens the opportunity and support structure to interact and participate in key events that will be tailored to share best practices and experiences related to the overall internationalisation of communities. By doing so the project will also aim to foster a strong sense of European identity and ownership and enhance mutual understanding between members and The three topics -internationalisation, integration and inclusion - will form the foundation for the project with members from local communities being brought together to share and exchange experiences, opinions and values related to the topics. The project will aim to create a platform where participants will work on themes related to the topics through the use of 5 (depends on partners) seminars each hosted by one partner. The seminars will provide an avenue for participants to debate, learn and discuss on the main topics of the project while also encouraging interaction between members of the participating nations. Within each These seminars will be developed in such a way so as to create a meaningful and productive workspace where planned tasks, workshops and activities will result in collected information that will then be used to produce a “3i guidebook”. This can then be disseminated to other communities in Europe who are also facing issues relating to the internationalisation, integration and inclusion of members into their communities. Project idea: 3i Rural development, inclusion, integration and internationalisation Aims: Developing communities through internationalisation and integration activities. Objectives: How: Developing town services to meet the needs of new people in the community, both foreign and national. This will focus on the interaction and exchange of best practices between civil servants in partner countries. To provide local communities the platform to take part in inclusion activities to create greater levels of diversification and inclusivity. Development of services to benefit economically and socially from the increased interaction and involvement of new community members (immigrants, refugees, asylum seekers). Who: Civil servants/front line services (circa 5 from each country) Close NGO’s operative personnel 3-5 (such as Red Cross, Village Associations and other rural associations such as 4H and Nuorisoseurat in Finland) Associations or different cultural groups (such as Central-Finland’s African Association) when applicable, 1-5. Activities: Preparatory meeting, 1 meeting Planning meetings within the seminars Each partner will host a seminar which will be based on the use of workshops on certain subjects. Each partner will have a specific subject so for example, Kalajoki would deal with intercultural communication. Topics will be deiced once other partners have been identified but could deal with subjects such as;internationalisation of (town) services, integration in our community. In the time between seminars each community will undertake an analysis of the current state, related to the theme, and methods to improve issues will be found in the workshops in the seminars. Integration community guidebook made up from results of the seminars and the specific topics for each.The workshops and activities held during the seminars will product the information needed to make the guidebook.
