Build Solid Ground Project

Fair and decent housing in sustainable communities (covered mainly by SDG 11) is the main driving force of this joint project. Build Solid Ground Project is an EU-funded project which is being carried out by 14 partners in 7 countries. Program countries include Bulgaria, Hungary, Ireland, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and the UK. Our niche is to focus on education and awareness-raising activities in the areas of preventing youth radicalization, migration, interfaith, interethnic and multicultural dialogue, and Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030).

Build Solid Ground Project

So far we have focused our cooperation with partners on raising awareness of the above-mentioned topics via: social media posts, articles, interviews, the Bistro Afrika theatrical performance, the documentary film Talking Feet and a dozen short videos within the “Open up for Dialogue” program covering existing good practice or mini-projects in the main topics area of the BSG project. Currently, we are also working on campaigning activities for Better Housing with our consortium partners.

Our education activities are focused on high school students, offering them living libraries and informal discussion formats with “live books” - guests from Benin, Ethiopia, Guinea, and Kenya living in Slovakia and Bistro Afrika theatrical performances followed by facilitated discussion in smaller groups. For youths from the Visegrad countries, Bulgaria, and Romania, we have designed an 8-month education program captured by the documentary Talking Feet. Another target group consists of university students and teachers. A new university course titled “Winter/Spring School of Development and Peace Education” on Land Rights and Housing in the case of Mega Sport Events was created in cooperation with our German (Planpolitik) and Brazilian (University of Rio Grande) partners. So far, the course has opened for 6 different universities in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Last but not least, we are organizing informal offline meetings (“Tea-Time Discussions”) to support Global Education learners and educators in sharing and exchanging their know-how.
