Namasté was a project which reinforced the city-wide programme of integration projects for foreign adolescents and second-generation people. It was underpinned by a multi-level strategy that involved both the inhabitants and the institutions and worked on the three more significant moments in young people’s lives: school, family and aggregation.
Namasté investigated, together with young people in the community, experiences of life and of inclusion at school and in the workplace, with specific attention given to young people of foreign origin. In this regard, it promoted the realisation of participative research, collective writing and social research initiatives. Once this phase ended, Namasté operated so that the accumulated knowledge could resonate with those who genuinely operate in the community. In this way, as a conclusion of the project, an educational pathway was created to both systematise what had been learnt and consolidate an operational network on the topic.
