Today social exclusion and poverty are considered to be the most challenging problems of the time for all countries, and for all the official organizations and managers of all kinds of institutions. It is a current challenging problem on the top agenda of EU, and there is a need to develop strategies and policies to overcome the issue in EU. For this reason, the fight against the social exclusion has become a one of the main six objectives of the European social policy by the Amsterdam Treaty.
LEMOR is project designed for finding new cross-cultural ways and sharing of good practices on poverty and social exclusion in EU States. Therefore, organizations from six countries acting in the area of social exclusion and poverty made a partnership in such a way to represent the multi player action. The project focuses on organizations and managers to deal with the problem. In each country there are many local solutions and good practices, which are unknown to other partners/countries and could be shared.
During the implementation, all the partner countries will be visited and the problems, solutions and good practices and possible new strategies will be studied. And they will be compiled in different formats for all countries. At the end of the project not only a cross-border vision and partnership will be obtained among the partner countries but also managers of partner organizations will upgrade themselves.
As the impacts and products of the project we foresee to produce electronic material, e-booklet, websites, etc., printed material-booklets, reports, pilot practices etc. In each partner country, a series of activities will be held and all the experience and material outputs will be compiled in different formats.
