Social inclusion: MoreThanAJob and MedTOWN projects join forces
An-Najah National University, lead beneficiary of the MoreThanAJob project, is interested in possible collaborations with the MedTOWN project (Co-producing social policies with social and solidarity economy - SSE - actors to fight poverty, inequality and social exclusion) to reinforce the impact of birth projects.
During the training for lead beneficiaries organized by the ENI CBC Med Programme in October 2019, Dr.Imad Ibrik, MorethanAJob project manager and José María López, MedTOWN project mamager from Assembly of Cooperation for Peace, met and agreed to unify their efforts for empowering social services in the Mediterranean region.
The project MedTOWN is an initiative focused on the combined potential of agents of the social and solidarity economy (SSE), citizens and local authorities to co-produce social policies that can fight poverty, inequality, social exclusion, and environmental unsustainability, providing them with tools and connections to build local resilience and foster the transition towards more fair, resilient and sustainable societies in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
As for MoreThanAJob, the MedTOWN project will achieve policies and regulatory recommendations to improve the delivery of social services, and cooperation between public administrations and relevant stakeholders for coordinated planning and implementation of social services.
