During the first year of the project we elaborated and than adopt methods and improve existing good practices and programmes which are effective in reaching community aims for social excluded people in the 4 key areas selected during the phase of project design ( Community building, Education, Training and Employability, Eco-Sustainability, Housing).
After the analysis of study cases, at the beginning of the second year of project, technical expert of the project who participate in Study Visits elaborate this Tool Box, containing transferable good practices selected during study visits. This helped in the creation of a public web platform to be considered as an important tool for all those professional working in this field.
