ESC RESOLVE: Social Action
Interested in leading your own social action project?
Would you like to be responsible for a social action project budget and make decisions on how it is spent?
The RESOLVE: Social Action programme wishes to provide an opportunity for UK Resolvers (former Erasmus+ RESOLVE programme participants) and peer young people to continue on designing, planning, managing and delivering youth-led social action in their local communities.
Key issues within our communities, UK Resolvers wish to address:
- Lack of youth developing reconciliation/conflict resolution skills to address their personal, community or wider conflicts
- The Rise of the Far Right in the UK – especially in relation to attracting young people who do not feel their voices are being heard
- Community isolation and Community-based conflict caused by the changes in our society started due to the Economic Crisis, Austerity and Brexit
- The negative view of Migrants, Refugees and anyone else from a socially disadvantaged group who has been portrayed negatively by the press and the Far Right (i.e. the homeless who are increasingly being attached on the street and Welfare claimants)
- Rise in segregation within our communities
- Need for social enterprise skills and initiative amongst young job seekers.
Initially, UK Resolvers aims to co-develop our peers, developing the skill-sets of other young people in reconciliation skills through delivering some of the activities we learned during the RESOLVE programmes – such as Sport for Peace, Simulation games, Theatre for Peace role plays, People-to-people dialogue, Mediation activities etc.
This will assist in the development of our local RESOLVE: Network.
The RESOLVE: Social Action project aims and objectives included:
- Promote youth-led social action
- Reduce conflict
- Build reconciliation
- Promote social inclusion
- Increase civic awareness – around the realities of subject like: economics migrants; EU citizens; the EU; Brexit – ensuring more diverse views are being shared and discussed, rather than one-sided views
- Reduce inter-community anger – most of this anger which is created by politicians – the UK Resolvers will offer a platform of dialogue and mediation to break down some of this anger through encouraging responsible expression.
- Increased Social entrepreneurial skills development amongst youth through peer to peer learning.
