The British National Offender Management Service has invited Mr Crisona as an expert in representation of europemobility.eu, to join the ACTIVE INCLUSION LEARNING NETWORK meeting organized by ISFOL – Italy, the 4th and 5th December in Rome.

Active Inclusion is a European Social Fund (ESF) transnational Learning Network, funded through the European Commission, with partners from Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The project commenced in June 2013, and is due to finish on 31 May 2015.

The learning network is looking at the following themes:

  • Troubled Families (Anti Social Behaviour; Offenders’ Families; Long term/multi-generational Unemployed; and Educational Problems.)
  • Disaffected Youth (Youth Not in Education, Employment or Training; and Youth Inclusion and Empowerment.)
  • Marginalised in Communities (Homelessness; Physical, mental and learning difficulties; Offenders/Ex Offenders; and Drugs and Alcohol abuse.)

Mr Crisonà has proposed to the ACTIVE INCLUSION LEARNING NETWORK to considerate the possibility to join common activities with SOS Network , a thematic network active on inclusive eduction in Europe, recently started and very active in collecting resources and opportunities for inclusion. Contacts on this potential collaboration are therefore ongoing among the international coordinators.


The overall goal of the Learning Network is to tackle unemployment amongst ‘Troubled Families’, ‘Marginalised in Communities’ and ‘Disaffected Youth’ by enhancing social inclusion and preventing stigmatisation. The Learning Network will identify where and what type of support is required, and what policies and practices work best and offer the best chance of success for the disadvantaged. It is doing this by examining government strategies and policies, as well as identifying and evaluating programmes, interventions and innovative work, from across the EU, that promote the social inclusion of these disadvantaged groups.
