In addition to develop educational resources and participate in R & I projects Ersilia Foundation supports other institutions with which we share strategies and objectives. In many cases what we do is provide the tools to better communicate and disseminate their projects. In particular, we have collaborated with Sustainable Barcelona Educational programme from the City Council of Barcelona and XESC programme promoted by the Generalitat of Catalonia Department of Environment and Housing, Fem Poble St. Miquel de Balenyà Neighborhood Initiative, and the Casal d’Infants association.

Tools 2.0 for a local movement
Ersilia Foundation is collaborating with the neighbourhood association “Fem Poble” (Sant Miquel de Balenyà) in the project to imagine a town with better quality parks and public spaces. We believe a high quality parks and public spaces are an essential feature of successful neighbourhoods where people want to live, work, play and invest. What we do?: We hear the ideas of the residents to improve public spaces and we draw or compose images so they can visualize how these spaces would change if their ideas are put into practice. We provide 2.0 tools, as a web or Facebook or Instagram channels, with the idea of providing opportunities for participation and debate and to create consensus that parks and public spaces are a genuine political and financial priority. www.fempoble.eu www.facebook.com/fempoblebalenya
