Jovesólides has trained about fifteen teachers from Italy and Spain in the innovative method ‘BiciLiberaTutt*', which sees mobility as a tool to strengthen social cohesion
Bolonia and València were the focus of the European project Let’s cycling!
A total of 13 Italian and Spanish education professionals were trained in a new innovative methodology of social inclusion through mobility, developed by Jovesólides in cooperation with the Italian institutions CEFA and Salvaiciclisti, with funding from the Erasmus+ programme, as part of the European education project for the development of Let's cycling! BiciLiberaTutt* pushes educational training that focuses on mobility as a central idea to promote autonomy, empowerment and inclusion of people.
As a result of the project, they have developed three didactic guides in English, Italian and Spanish so that anyone who wants to can get to know the methodology, learn it and apply it independently. The aim of this trilingual toolkit is to strengthen the skills of staff and volunteers in associations or institutions that carry out training activities with people at risk of exclusion.
Training for trained persons
The 13 teachers and Let's Cycling social workers involved, experts from Spain and Italy, were trained during a meeting in Bolonia at the beginning of March, where they strengthened their skills and received instructions on sustainable mobility and social inclusion so that the resulting methodology would promote education for development.
Subsequently, these people trained 40 others in Bolonia and València in two laboratories that served to spread the idea that mobility enables a liberating, sustainable and social coexistence.
Sustainable mobility as an agent for change
With Let’s Cycling! has promoted the cooperation and the collaborative work between the three partner entities through an exchange of good practices and thee experience of implementing a common project.
The challenge now is to continue the work of promoting intercultural education, welcoming and accompanying migrants and people at risk of social exclusion, and supporting the creation of inclusive communities based on solidarity.
