In 2020, for the first time, Fondazione Reggio Children adheres to the Servizio Civile Universale program in the Reggio Emilia area created within the system headed by Confcooperative Reggio Emilia, with the project “Thinking and acting educating communities" offering four places for young people aged 18 to 28.
The project was born with the aim of conceiving, planning and conducting educational proposals in the territory of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, favoring the construction of educating communities where sustainable relationships between people also include a sensitive look at the relationship with nature.
Also for 2024 Fondazione Reggio Children adheres to the program with the project “PER COMUNITA' EDUCANTI - Partecipazione, Ecologia, Resilienza per comunità educanti”, making 4 places available.
The activities will take place at the offices of Fondazione Reggio Children, Pause Atelier dei Sapori and the Remida Centre in Reggio Emilia (Italy) for a total duration of 12 months (25 hours a week, 5 days a week).
Divided into the three different bodies, civilians will be involved in support activities for the management of activities and projects, for the communication and dissemination of project initiatives and results, for the design of new activities through participation in tenders.
