RETROSPECTIVE OF THE ReSolution PROJECT PARTNERS ON THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CRISIS CAUSED BY COVID-19
One of the impacts of COVID 19 has been to highlight a worsening of existing situations of vulnerability and poverty, which has been more accentuated in those sectors of the population that were in a situation of severe or moderate social exclusion, affected by situations arising from inequality and social injustice.
This increase in structural poverty means that it is more necessary than ever to strengthen the projects that work directly with these groups, in which the economic impact of the crisis will more than likely result in an increase in job insecurity; this indicator, on the other hand, will also increase social exclusion, and other invisible realities (chronic poverty, lack of social participation, isolation…) derived from the situations to which social exclusion leads.
It is everyone’s responsibility to address this social decline. We need to think creatively as a global community, putting people at the centre and understanding that what affects other groups affects us all.
In this serious and uncertain context, projects such as ReSolution, which already targets people in vulnerable situations, make more sense. The ReSolution project is also a working space with common and shared objectives and ethical values among the different structures of which we are part. We share the same sensibility regarding the implementation of proposals and tools to respond and activate social and transformative action at the service of the most vulnerable groups.
The time has come to reflect on the social structure in which we live, on the growing socio-economic gap to which the effects of this pandemic are leading us, and on how the structures working on the ground can contribute to mitigating the effects of the current crisis.
This is an exercise in social responsibility.
The ReSolution project aims to bridge the gap between professionals (actors of socio-professional integration, trainers, employment professionals) who work directly with people far from employment, defined at this stage as a heterogeneous group within the population aged between 15 and 64 years old for whom socio-professional integration is a major issue, particularly vulnerable young people “neither in employment, nor in studies, nor in training” (NEET), and long-term jobseekers (people who have been unemployed for at least 1 year).
To this end, several free online tools will be created:
- Innovative practice tools to inspire the target group ;
- A training tutorial for professionals working with audiences far from employment ;
- Un MOOC (cours en ligne massif et ouvert) ;
THE TOOLBOX IS GOING ON!
In the last newsletter, we already told you about this toolbox. We now know that it will contain 16 innovative practices, to which new practices can be added by guidance professionals participating in the massive MOOC online course.
The practices presented have been identified in France, Italy, Belgium, Hungary, Spain and Portugal, and can be carried out in other contexts, following the transferability elements present in the sheets. These practices are intended to promote the social and professional reintegration of all those who are furthest from employment. Out of these 16 practices, 11 files have been finalised, such as the “100% young people” practice developed in Belgium, which aims to enable young people who have dropped out of school to regain contact with and trust in institutions in order to implement a professional project.

The next step will be to make all the files available to readers online, in an accessible and attractive design.
