SOCIALNEET – PROGRESS, ACHIEVEMENTS, RESULTS Confartigianato Imprese Terni – January 2020

At present, following the report delivered at the end of September 2019, Socialneet project has made the following progress:

– As part of activity 2.3.8, the deep action to raise awareness and information about the project and its aims towards local institutions and civil society organizations continued. The result obtained was mainly related to the awareness, on the part of these subjects, that a greater degree of interaction and cooperation at local level is needed, a fact that is currently absent. The project was a fundamental element in this sense, and thanks to it Confartigianato Imprese Terni has acquired an important role in this area, acting as a key element between the institutions and the CSOs. An important result achieved is the sharing of a memorandum of understanding between Confartigianato Imprese Terni and the municipalities of Terni, Orvieto and Narni to carry out joint actions for the benefit of the project. The signing of this document will take place on 21 February on the occasion of the info day. (Attached is the list of the stakholders met)

– As part of activity 2.4.6, an important information campaign is being planned, via social media and traditional information channels, in order to promote the opening of the meeting point located in Confartigianato Imprese Terni’s headquarter and the organization of the info day. This campaign will begin during the current week.

– With regard to activity 3.2.7, Confartigianato Imprese Terni has acquired a deep knowledge concerning the issue related to the identification of a methodology connected to the analysis of the degree of interaction between the CSOs (private and institutional) operating at local level. An in-depth desk analysis relating to documentation (articles, laws, studies) was carried out and a focus group was set up between private organizations operating in the third sector. The second focus group with the participation of institutional subjects is scheduled for the next few days. This analysis, as mentioned, outlined a substantial lack of interaction between the subjects of civil society, an element that makes the implementation of effective policies in the area particularly difficult. This also makes the data collection phase on unused resources problematic. Despite having made formal requests to many local bodies and institutions, it is difficult to acquire reliable data, however, we hope to conclude this phase positively, also considering the stimulus function, in this sense, that the project is having. With regard to the questionnaires, for the reasons just expressed we are experiencing difficulties in having concrete answers. We have distributed the questionnaire to dozens of subjects. We are intensifying contacts in order to have concrete results by the end of February.

– With regard to activity 4.1.6, the Meeting Point is active since the end of January within Confartigianato Imprese Terni’s headquarter. The Info day, activity 2.2.33, is scheduled for next February 21st.
