Promotion of social inclusion and the fight against poverty


The Community of Practice (CoP) is the main tool for people-to-people communication in the project. A space for inspiration, mutual e-learning and interactions on social innovation in the co-production of social services, as well as a vehicle for policy dialogue with critical reflections among professionals in the public social sector, local policy, citizenship and research in the SSE. In the long term, the CoP will be linked with other CoPs in the field of sustainable communities and eco-social innovation.


The stimulating journey around the Mediterranean that the training provides makes it an excellent opportunity to learn interactively and exchange knowledge on ways to develop co-production initiatives using local currencies and social innovation instruments. The main aim is to help SSE actors to develop appropriate skills on community-building abilities so that they can facilitate the engagement of local actors in co-production activities.


MedTOWN is a social innovation project that supports the role and capacities of the SSE actors in fighting poverty, inequality, social exclusion and environmental unsustainability through the research and experimentation of a SSE based co-production model. It aims at improving the legal and regulatory framework of co-production initiatives and at promoting the use of public complementary e-currencies for the provision of social services and financial aid.
