About the EM-CITY Project
All Europe is going through an extraordinary emergency issue in these days. One of the obstacles during the emergency activities was limited communication among different groups of people living in the local area together. And in case of an emergency, it is not easy always to include all these groups in an emergency plan at the same level. This include both young and elderly people, families, Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, long-time residents, and so on.
Considering this need we designed EM-CITY project to promote social cohesion among different groups in the local communities in case of emergency, recognizing that young people, if properly sensitized and involved, can play a pivotal role in facilitating these relations.
