Title: The Intercultural Community Intervention Project (ICI) promoted by “la Caixa” Foundation.

Abstract: The Intercultural Community Intervention Project (ICI) encourages social interaction in areas with great cultural diversity to create a more cohesive society. Our aim is to produce a model of social intervention that can be applied to different locations where we operate and that helps to promote intercultural cohesion in society, improving the living conditions of the whole population. To achieve this, we promote a new way of working in society based on the resources available in each area and involving the whole community in its development. We work in collaboration with the public administration and with social organizations in the different areas to ensure this project becomes a model that can be rolled out to other neighborhoods and towns. Through interdisciplinary teams related to social organizations, preventative and promotional work is carried out of an integrating nature, with the goal of transforming and promoting open processes that involve both citizens and institutions. We focus our actions on education, health and citizen relations. Actions in these three areas emphasize work with children, young people and families. Click here to know more about the project.
