II Implementation Seminar Bucharest,

January 22-23, 2009 Power Point Presentation

Work in Progress.

Under the DCDII programm managed by FESU, ANITIA continues its project on "Young urban vagrants and uses psycho active substances.
The objectives are to:

  • Make visible to young people in vulnerable circumstances the action of social Europe.

  • Exchange experiences and best practices between different European cities between elected officials and professionals.

  • Transfer of social experiences and actions to achieve a common level.

  • Allow cities to access European funding from a programmer hardware.

The project includes the following cities: Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Toulouse, Lille, Bologna and Bucharest.

The first phase has just ended. It aimed to establish a diagnosis on Young urban vagrants on the one hand (characteristics, problems, resources ...) and the nuisance and safety issues faced by the municipalities, on the other. Cities have also clarified the activities or services in place to provide answers to young people wandering. Following the project will develop these courses of action, via interviews on 6 sites and the identification of "best practices".
This project relies primarily on the experience of cities and the mobilization of elected representatives. However, it is accompanied by an expert group currently being formed, which already includes: Martine Lacoste (CLEMENCE ISAURE, Toulouse), Karlheinz Cerny (ESPACE DU POSSIBLE, Lille), Jean-Michel Delile (CEID Bordeaux), Anne Coppel (sociologist), François Chobeaux (CEMEA).

With the diagnosis, on-site interviews to come and inputs from experts, the work aims to produce:

-    A  positioning charter

-    A practical social guide (multiple languages) with chapters general and common to all cities for young vagrants to access useful services (accommodation, emergencies, health, nutrition, risk reduction, etc.).

-    A guide appropriate responses ( "best practices") for professionals in cities.

City representatives and experts will meet and discuss the tools coproducts at an endo-training seminar to be held in April 2010.
The Vienna Conference in November 2010, organized by the FESU will mark the end of the project and dissemination tools.
