Digitalized training course
The training course for professionals working in urban setting will consist of mixed-media materials on the topic of creating more inclusive urban communities and working with adults at risk, especially due to the migration background. The training will be primarily targeting educators and staff members from both non-governmental and governmental organizations and institutions working with adults at risk in cities. The main need behind creating this output is the observed lack of knowledge and, in some cases, willingness to give more responsibility to the people themselves and act only as supporters rather than experts implementing ready solutions.
The main focus of this output would be to introduce the concept of community development in the city and encouraging educators and staff working with adults to broaden their approaches and focus not only on supporting people to raise their competences individually, but also to implement activities that could create a community and give people both more sense of belonging and tools to become changemakers.
Tool Kit on Needs Assessment in Urban Communities
The tool kit itself will be in a form of a digital publication with a step-by-step description of four different community needs assessment methods. Each method description will be complimented with printable handouts and a checklist of task and materials needed to implement it. Along with the description for each method, the tool kit will also include a short report from the testing phase done locally.
