WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE CITY COUNCIL

The Fundació Catalunya Voluntària has received the support of the Barcelona City Council, within the framework of the general call for annual grants, to carry out 4 initiatives, which will help us fight against discrimination and hate speech, promote coexistence and raise awareness of the climate crisis and citizenship rights.

The 4 winning initiatives are:

  • The ‘Move to Learn’ project, which celebrates its 8th edition as part of the FCV’s ‘Catalans around the world’ programme. The project helps us make it possible for young people with difficulties to participate in this type of activity to take advantage of international mobility, training, volunteering and exchange opportunities that take place abroad.
    The project takes place in association with different entities and social networks and also has the support of the ‘Fundació La Caixa’.

There are 3 initiatives that are taking place for the second time and that we hope to carry out in 2022, maintaining and improving the results of the previous editions, in 2021:

  • The project ‘Sustainable Podcast, 2nd edition’ will allow us to publicize various ecological practices and environmental care initiatives carried out by various entities in the city and share them through a series of talks and entertaining interviews in ‘podcast’ format. The initiative reflects the FCV’s commitment to publicize and raise awareness of the role that all non-profit entities can play in the fight against the climate crisis.
  • The ‘Dances for Coexistence’ project promotes positive interaction between young people from different cultures using dance as a common element and expresses FCV’s commitment to make greater use of the fine arts as a tool for quality learning, different and innovative, through, in this case, dance and body movement techniques that we consider very useful to promote cultural expression and knowledge of new realities and cultures.
  • The project ‘If you want to improve, think!’ offers awareness-raising and educational activities (campaigns, workshops) to help address the lack of media literacy and thinking, which is at the root of many of the conflicts facing individuals and communities. The project reflects our commitment to collect, publicize and create educational tools that help us understand reality, communicate, act and make the right decisions using our own ability to think. This activity is also supported by the Erasmus+ program of the European Commission.

The 4 initiatives have in common to be original and open to the participation of those entities and people who want to collaborate or participate. For this reason, we recommend that you keep an eye on the agenda on our website and on social networks. The total and maximum amount received from the City Council of Barcelona to carry out the 4 initiatives is €9,500.
