MAKING SYSTEM

In Sicily a pilot project has started for the integration of young people, Italians and foreigners, in disadvantaged conditions.

The core of the project activities is realized in eastern Sicily, in particular in the provinces of Catania and Ragusa, a territory where hundreds of migrants arrive, often unaccompanied minors fleeing from their countries. The project “Making System Beyond Hospitality” targets these migrants, but also young Italians in a situation of distress, providing them with employment opportunities and social inclusion.

Why “making system”? In today’s complex society it is necessary to put at stake different skills, experiences and expertise in order to address these issues. “In this case, for example, Francesco Tortorella of AMU project area explains, the initial idea came from the Fo. Co. cooperative that has been dealing with the integration of asylum seekers and unaccompanied minors in Sicily for years. Other partners were immediately involved, as the non-profit organization AFN for example, who will put into place a national network of families for the reception of these young people as well as of businesses of the Economy of Communion which will offer throughout Italy vocational training opportunities and job placement, and so forth.”

This project, which began in January, will last one year. It will involve fifty young people and almost as many workers. This experiment will be the basis for future actions of this kind at national level, which are actually already in planning stage.
