Topics to be developedEdit

CITISENSHIP: what does it means, for us, “to be citizens” and what does it means for us “active citizenship”?

RESPONSIBILITY: what does it means to be “active citizens”?, responsible for the common goods?

OWNERSHIP: how to develop it? Only after the creation of the ownership feeling, it become possible to structure an action plan and long-term activities.

LONG-TERM PERSPECTIVE: it’s important to realize activities with an immediate impact (“spot”) on the local backgrounds, but it’s also fundamental to find the most suitable way to give continuity (in a long-term perspective) to the initiatives.

DEEP-ROOTED: the activities have to meet (and answer) to the local needs and they have to be deep-rooted there.

IMPACT: does it meet to the aim fixed in the beginning of the project? How to measure the impact in a short and long term perspective?
