GOAL (Granting Opportunities for Active Learning)


Short Description
Immigration and immigrants’ participation represent vivid issues at the EU level and affect citizen’s daily life throughout the continent.
The project GOAL (Granting Opportunities for Active Learning) aims at promoting citizen participation in the construction of a tighter-knit, democratic, world-oriented and united Europe, tackling the challenge of immigration and emigration as opportunities to develop active citizenship and sense of ownership of the EU, whilst enhancing tolerance, solidarity and mutual understanding. The project presents a set of activities that grants citizens the chance to interact – both at the local and at the European level – and offers them the occasion to “work” together towards a common aim.

Overall Objectives
• To encourage the participation of European citizens in the construction of Europe
• To engage citizens in the debate about the further integration of Europe
• To enhance the relation between European citizens and EU institutions
• To encourage a bottom up approach to allow citizens to express their views
• To promote a "two-way process" (information and feedback) between EU Institutions and citizens
• To develop innovative methods to enhance participation

Specific objectives
• To create "citizens' panels" to promote active European Citizenship at the local level
• To promote the participation of citizens on an extensive basis, involving directly citizens who would not have spontaneously participated in projects of a European nature
• To promote trans-national mobility opportunities among the citizens of the countries involved
• To encourage the exchange of ideas and best practices
• To realize relevant outcomes (position papers, reports, etc.) to be submitted to decision makers
GOAL specific aim is to further improve the methodology of “citizens’ panels” adding the component of immigration. These panels are groups of ordinary citizens who would not have spontaneously participated in projects of a European nature and paying attention to involve people of different demographic, social and professional background. These groups meet regularly throughout the project to discuss matters of migration and, eventually submit recommendations on this issue to relevant political actors at local and European level.
GOAL foresees 9 steps of activity, having an impact both at the local and at the European level:
1. Training for citizens’ panels activators
2. Set-up of local citizens’ panels
3. Local panels and workshops
4. International meeting of citizens’ panels (mid-term): Kastoria (Greece), June 17-19 2011
5. Open days at the local level
6. Production phase
7. International final workshop: Bucharest (Romania), November 2011
8. Final publication
ARDR has implemented the actions of the GOAL project in the Amarastii de Jos community in Dolj County. Amarastii de Jos is a commune with almost 7000 inhabitants, situated 60 kilometers south from Craiova. The community was chosen for implementing the activities of the project because it is facing problems regarding the massive emigration of people abroad for work. This has created a series of problems for the community from the phenomenon of „brain drain” where the professionals and well educated individual leave the community and settle abroad to aging of the population. Adding to this was the increased risk for people coming from rural areas. Most of them lack proper information before going abroad to find work and thus have a higher risk of getting deceived, getting underplayed jobs, getting on the black market etc.
