The Reconciliation of Work and Private Life (PEOPLE theme #1)

The necessary and increasing access of women into the labor market, the increased number of people in dependent situations due to social and demographic changes challenged by European regions and the growing need for retaining talent force us to implement effective and efficient measures with an immediate impact in the field of reconciliation of work and private life between women and men. That is why PEOPLE project aims to address this issue as a priority, through the Programme's "sub-objective 1": The Reconciliation of Work and Private Life between women and men.

e-health and independence
E-health and Independence - home

E-health and Independence (PEOPLE theme #2)

Technology-supported health and care services can help reduce demands on carers and provide better more effective solutions for health and independence. There are two inter-related markets for technologysupported services that need to be developed in order to provide sustainable health and social care in the future:
Market 1: Telecare, Telehealth, Medicare
- the provision of equipment, systems and services for monitoring general well-being and/or specific medical conditions (e.g. high blood pressure, diabetes, et cetera) for treatment and for dispensing medication, or for control related to these conditions.
Market 2: Assistive Living, Assisted Living (AL)
- specialist equipment and software, including that related to mobility, access, ergonomics and household features designed to assist independent living. Assisted Living equipment can help reduce reliance on social and support services and allow some people to stay out of residential care. It includes infrastructure and system support provision and may encompass residential care and domiciliary care. NOTE: Assisted Living equipment that does not use ICT (e.g. stairlifts etc) would not be covered by this project.

silver economy
The Silver Economy - home
The Silver Economy (PEOPLE theme #3)
Europe's population is ageing, potentially resulting in a decline in total employment, lower prospects for economic growth and a smaller working population supporting a much larger number of elderly people. An immediate priority is to limit redundancy numbers; support people who are made redundant; and re-skill and re-engage as many as possible. A longer term priority is to support future economic growth. It is also important to ensure that these priorities promote equality and diversity for all groups, including men and women, people from different ethnic backgrounds and faiths, disabled people and people with different sexual orientations.
An important aspect of the Silver Economy is that older people are major contributors to their regional and local economies as consumers of products and users of services. Relevant services and products include those which relate to health and dependency; improve quality of life (e.g. travel, leisure, education, social activities) and involve a ‘design-for-all’ approach (e.g. vehicles, ICT hardware and software).

social entrepreneurship
Social Entrepreneurship - home

Social Entrepreneurship (PEOPLE theme #5)

Social Economy is that part of the economy which is neither private nor public, but consists of constituted organisations, with voluntary members and boards of directors or management committees, undertaking activities for local benefit. The Social Economy is often referred to as ‘the third sector’ and can be broken down into three sub-sectors: the community sector, the voluntary sector and the social enterprise sector.

Social Entrepreneurship is the work of a social entrepreneur. A social entrepreneur is someone who recognises a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organise, create, and manage a venture to make social change.

Civil Society Empowerment (PEOPLE theme #6)
European regions need to confront demographic changes that are drastically mutating the composition and the social needs and priorities of their communities: immigration, ageing, increasing ethnic and cultural diversity, unemployment, disadvantaged people, changing family structures are posing new and compelling challenges.
In this scenario, local authorities play an important role in order to effectively pursue their priority tasks, which are:
• the promotion of the economic, cultural and social development of theirrespective community;
• the promotion of innovative methods and mechanisms to support the inclusion and solidarity across different social groups and improve the community cohesion, including through the development of increased social capital, especially among the most disadvantaged categories of citizens (the disabled, immigrants, ROMA peoples and travellers, the elderly, women, the unemployed, and people at risk of exclusion due to poverty or other reasons);
• empower the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in order to set up innovative methods and mechanisms to support sociall changes.

THE PEOPLE PROGRAMME - 5- Top_PR_SO2-SO4_Empowerment_civilians
Governments have to stimulate and facilitate the empowerment of civilians regarding more self organization and to reinforce their social and informal care network. Several factors have to be taken into account:
• In regions where there is a history of centralised coordination of the government, governments have to take a step backwards to give more space to self organization of civilians. Apart from this change of culture, procedures and legislations the welfare state has to be changed.
• It is important that governments raise awareness to all stakeholders about their changing relationship with civilians and that civilians have to take more responsibility for themselves and of others in their social network.
• The government has to stimulate and facilitate active and inactive civilians in realising digital (local) communities together with good access to internet and web 2.0 tools for every one and improvement of digital skills to use these tools

Report 4th EU Interregional Cooperation Forum

THE PEOPLE PROGRAMME - Report 4th EU Interregional Cooperation Forum

4th EU Interregional Cooperation Forum, Budapest, 3-4 February 2011

On February 3rd and 4th, the Lead Partner attended the 4th EU Interregional Cooperation Forum in Budapest, organized by the INTERREG IVC Secretariat. In general, this event offered participants an opportunity to get all the information about the last open call for projects, to attend workshops addressing specific issues that projects can face – and overcome, to network and search for partners interested in the same issues and to discover the advances made by INTERREG IVC projects in the fields of Innovation and Environment.

During the Interregional Cooperation Achievements session, Aneta Widak from the Marshall Office of Malopolska Region represented the PEOPLE Project alongside three other regional authorities providing testimonies on specific gains they have made thanks to INTERREG IVC projects. Aneta presented Malopolska's "Strategy for ageing population" as it is one of our main regional outputs of PEOPLE. It was of interest to all participants to hear how the involvement of the regional stakeholders and the peer reviews carried out, have impacted the implementation of the aging population policy and strategy in Malopolska Region.

Many other PEOPLE regions and sub-projects partners participated in the Forum in Budapest, which clearly was a perfect environment for disseminating PEOPLE Project to a European audience!
