RESISTIRÉ is making a difference! We’re funding a selection of pilot projects that aim to reduce the impact of the pandemic on vulnerable groups, in specific domains.
RESISTIRÉ’s last call for pilot projects was closed on 31 January 2022. In total, 30 project proposals were accepted for evaluation with applicants from many countries. All proposals were evaluated by RESISTIRÉ Pilot Evaluation Board. In this first call, four projects were selected, amounting for a funding of over EUR 120,000 in total. These projects, executed by NGOs and CSOs, aim to reduce the impact of the pandemic on vulnerable groups in three domains.
Congratulations to all successful applicants and a warm thank you for all submitted projects and all the effort dedicated to this call. A second call for pilot projects will be launched in Autumn 2022, stay informed by subscribing to our newsletter (four times a year, nothing more).
GREEN SPACES AS AN ECOSYSTEM OF CARE
RESISTIRÉ supports two pilot projects transforming green spaces into an ‘Ecosystem of Care’ through the development and implementation of programmes that make all users, and in particular vulnerable groups, feel welcome and able to access green spaces.
Parc de l’Espanya Industrial: aquí (Spain)
aquí is a social innovation collective based in Barcelona that collaborates with citizens and local organizations to create a more equitable, sustainable and healthy city.
Triester Neighbourhood: Transition Graz (Austria)
Transition Graz aims to transform Graz into a transition city that is both future-proof and, in global terms, fair.
EMPLOYERS WHO CARE
RESISTIRÉ supports projects contributing to the positive transformation of the homecare sector and the working conditions of domestic workers by mobilising “committed” employers as key actors of change and allies of domestic workers.
Allied Employers: SOS Racismo (Spain)
Allied employers is a project that consists of creating spaces for meetings and dialogue between migrant domestic workers and employers -single elderly people or families with care needs- in Gipuzkoa.
RESISTIRÉ supports projects co-creating caring workspaces promoting inclusiveness, diversity, safety and care for employees at all levels, also responding to the new challenges posed by the pandemic and the increase in teleworking.
Creating Caring Workspaces: Postane and Hafıza Merkezi (Turkey)
During this one-year project, Postane and Hafıza Merkezi will conduct desktop research, create a comprehensive checklist and carry out a communication campaign for the promotion of caring gender+ workspaces.
