For School

 

We have a twofold goal: on the one hand, to strengthen participants’ civic duty and promote, since a young age, practices of active citizenship; on the other hand, to support a repossession of common spaces and a greater awareness and care of the commons by young participants. Drawing from the belief that education to participation is ageless, BiPart designs participatory processes and school-work balance projects in any kind of school, supporting the school’s staff and pupils in each step and with tailored tools.

 

Training

We provide students and teachers with the necessary skills to design and implement civic engagement processes: from organizational to graphic, communicative and facilitation skills, as well as know-how concerning software usability and online community management.

 

Facilitation

Every participatory process involves negotiation: BiPart’s team supports students and teachers in facilitating class meetings, understood as design workshops to raise issues and find solutions. Participation, as active listening, confrontation and co-design, thus represents an important medium of cohesion and cooperation among school users.

 

Support to Project Design

Thanks to our project management expertise, we provide support to schools’ staff in the analysis and feasibility assessment of gathered proposals and in the (re)definitionof tools and strategies to accomplish set goals.

How it works

 

To extend participation to education means to directly involve pupils in their school’s decision making processes: this, in turn, foster dialogue among them, with the school administration and with the local community to raise issues and bring about changes accordingly.
We provide students and teachers with the necessary skills to design and implement civic engagement processes: from organizational to graphic, communicative and facilitation skills, as well as know-how concerning software usability and online community management. The training mixes several languages in technical, economic and social fields of interest; different communication media (oral, scientific, symbolic...); and different devices (printouts, IT, multimedia).
