COMANITY kicks off: social inclusion through community animators

Universidad Internacional de La Rioja (UNIR) took part in the kick-off meeting of the newly-awarded Erasmus+ KA3 “Support for Policy Reform” project COMANITY on February 26-27. The two-year project (2017-2019) involving 9 partners from 5 EU countries will develop a new “Community Animateur” role and training programme, which aim is to bridge the existing gap between marginalised young people and public institutions such as youth services. By acting as a social mediator, the animateur will therefore contribute to the overall improvement of his/her community.
