On February 24, 2021, IDP European Consultants took part in a new CITIES BY HEART Transnational Project Meeting. The meeting took place online due to COVID-19 restrictions and allowed partners to take stock of the state of implementation of project activities and results.
While most of the attention is now devoted to Intellectual Output 5, Partners also discussed adjustments to the schedule and to the objectives to account for the exceptional circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, Partners made sure all previous activities were carried out according to agreed standards and procedures and came up with new ideas to boost the project’s dissemination activities.
CITIES BY HEART is a Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission involving a Consortium of six Partners from six countries (Austria, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal).
The goal of CITIES BY HEART Project is to promote a type of responsible tourism “at zero kilometre” in which protagonists are citizens with a family or individual migratory path (whether new entrants or settled in the neighbourhood for several generations) original they want to share. The objective is twofold: to create a link between the residents of these urban areas to avoid communal conflicts and to trigger an economic dynamic to respond to the precariousness of the inhabitants of disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
In the Project, IDP brings its consolidated experience and expertise as a private provider of VET and adult education services. IDP has 25 years of experience in international and cross-border collaboration in the field of promotion of entrepreneurship and employability. IDP will greatly contribute to the technical and operational activities of the Project carrying out analysis and stock-taking activities of the Italian VET ecosystem pertaining to the project; contributing to structuring modules, developing methodologies for effective teaching and learning, materials and content.
