The Institute for Social Enterprises of Rotterdam is an Italian-Dutch foundation which deals with legal and administrative consultancy on social issues.We are currently working in collaboration with two Dutch Municipalities (Rotterdam and Leeuwarden) to develop a new model of organization and management of the services traditionally provided by the municipalities: we are talking about a very wide range of services, from the most basic (care of public green, management of buildings and common areas etc) to the social services, up to the organization of events and so on.The goal of the project is to involve citizens and their communities (neighborhoods) more in the provision of these services, with a view to encouraging participation, a sense of community, civic engagement.Our final idea therefore is to bring the communities of citizens to self-organize, establishing themselves in the form of a "Social Enterprise", directly receiving the funds allocated by the Municipalities and providing part of these services, without the need for intermediaries, so as to raise the quality of the services themselves and adapt them to the real needs of the citizens.This is the core of our project. At the same time, the University of Rotterdam gave its availability to join us.In a second phase, we would like to "export" this model to other European countries or, at least, to create a debate on this issue in other EU countries.Hence, the idea of participating in the "Europe for the citizens" call.At this moment we need urgently to find collaborations, partnerships with European municipalities and/or no profit organizations involved in the social sector, provided that they have a legal personality and based in a EU country.If you are interested, please contact us!Matteo Satomail: Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots.

BEYOND DUBLIN The political and social phenomenon of sovereignty is the expression of electoral appetites but has found and finds support in the 1990 Dublin agreement. Agreement underestimated in the consequences at the time of the signature by the detractors today of the agreement and object of dispute between governments, all convinced, however, that a review of the agreement should be put on the agenda and in this sense Von Der Leyen, head of the new Commission, expressed herself. The project intends to directly involve 300 citizens per participating Country, in various ways interested in the topic, others 500 indirectly through social media, to study and discuss in interviews/workshops, accompanied by technical facilitators and with the final result sought: the formulation of 10 Recommendations for policy makers and administrators of the new EC, to be delivered in agreed form by representatives of the project partners to the European Parliament. The 10 final Recommendations will be those agreed between the partners in a meeting in Italy, starting from the Recommendations formulated by the different participants/Country.
