Presentation and prize-giving ceremony of the call “stories of resilience” (EPALE ITALIA)

Author: Irene Morici

The Italian Erasmus+ NA Indire and EPALE Italia joined the initiative of the European commission to create a network of positive role models who could inspire, with their stories, those living in difficult contexts, by enhancing trust in their capacity to make the most of difficult situations. The initiative is part of the measures of the European commission to support member states in overcoming radicalisation and social discrimination, through lifelong learning. At the end of 2017 the call “stories of resilience” was launched, receiving positive participation with more than 70 short stories from migrants, refugees, youths at risk of early school leaving, prisoners, ex-prisoners disables and disadvantaged youths. These were different stories sharing a pathway to redmption where education and training played a crucial role. On 21st March 2018, the authors of the 25 selected stories have been presented and awarded. During 2018 these people could become testimonials in schools, prisons, and institutes for adult learning and tell their stories as “role models” to inspire positive behaviours. http://rolemodel.erasmusplus.it/
