- Semi-finalist: CLASS Sharing
- Country: Italy
- Field: Community Cohesion and Cultural Diversity
Culture, leisure, art, sports and skills can change your view of the world, and a different view can change the world. The key idea underlying the CLASS Sharing project is a new and disruptive perspective of the question of integration based on an innovative system which rewards the ‘shared utilisation’ of culture and leisure opportunities by refugees/migrants and the local population. The operational tool is a web platform through which public and private organisations in the culture and leisure sector offer special packages for a specific period of time exclusively for mixed groups of refugees/migrants and local residents. By promoting a virtuous circle of social situations, the project will encourage the integration of migrants and refugees, facilitating, with time, their full inclusion in the host community.
