AttivaMente in english version

AttivaMente is a social enterprise founded in 2007 that operates mainly in the territory of eastern Veneto (Venice, Padua, Rovigo). The cooperative was founded with the aim of responding with professionalism and expertise to the needs of care and empowerment expressed by people and communities. The approach of AttivaMente is based on participation, active citizenship, reciprocity. The goal is the activation and the networking of the social and economic resources of the territories, promoting sustainable development and wellbeing of the communities


In many projects AttivaMente plays the role of activator of social resource and facilitator in the involvement of local civil networks. For the creation of welfare systems and services focused on the needs  of the person, AttivaMente promotes co-projecting and networking of best practices. Due to the established expertise in strategic planning, the University of Padua (Italy) has entrusted to AttivaMente an advisory role, for non didactic activities, in development of complex projects and fund raising.

Since 2014 AttivaMente is an accredited body for employment services through corporate profiling, recruitment, tutoring, monitoring and evaluation.

In 2015 AttivaMente is managing the process of employment of young people with disadvantages in tourism companies and primary sector companies, through specific projects developed with local Foundations and as operational partner in “Youth Guarantee” Projects. AttivaMente facilitates employment of people with "special" needs in its own projects and in companies of the territory, with customized projects. AttivaMente helps these people to enter in the organizations with the adequate profile and skills, and organizations to accept and to use tools and work processes effective in achievement of the best possible productivity (diversity management).

Since 2016 Attivamente manages a sports area in Rosolina Mare through “SportivaMente4all”, a project aiming at promoting sports activities for all, especially vulnerable groups such as disadvantaged youngsters and people with disabilities.

As managing operational partner for Ente Parco Delta Po and municipalities on the Venetian Lagoon, AttivaMente manages natural and water activities, such as vivits, organized sport and natural activities, natural and cultural heritage promotion, traditional crafts and arts promotion, local products and food promotion, with specific attention to sustainability and “KM0” apporach.

AttivaMente has developed a strong experience in mentoring and business coaching for socially disadvantaged groups, as well as sport training skills in sport for all that will be valorized in the project.

 

AttivaMente has among its main target groups people with disabilities, both mental and physical, people with social, cultural and economic disadvantages, especially youngsters with cognitive disadvantage and elder people. It main aim is to promote their professional and social integration, starting from the recognition and the valorisation of each one specificities and capabilities according to a person based approach.

To reach this goal, AttivaMente develops activities of social and rural tourism, sport “for all” activities and accessible facilities management, social entrepreneurship with these target groups in social agriculture, slow tourism and crafts. It manages 2 hostels in the rural area of Venetian lagoon (Delta del Po), developing social and natural/green tourism and agriculture, sport activities (horses, water sports, traditional sports and activities like use of donkeys for natural visits…) accessible for all valorising youth with mental diseases as active workers, and not only as beneficiaries. AttivaMente also manages a sport and leisure area, “SportivaMente For All” fully equipped to host youngsters with mental and physical disabilities, elder people with Alzheimer and other difficulties and their families, to improve their quality life through group activities, sport, trips to discover natural environment and cultural initiatives.

AttivaMente manages and coordinate activities for leisure and free time of elder people for the Municipality of Padova, working with more than 6000 elder people (since 2011) offering touristic, creative and sport activities. The project has shown good results, especially in the field of sport connected to natural tourism and creative works.

AttivaMente could focus its role in the connection between the valorisation and promotion of natural/rural touristic experiences, sport in natural and rural areas (Delta Po, Venetian Lagoon) and the opportunity of social inclusion and empowerment of people with difficulties, especially youngsters and elder people with Alzheimer and other degenerative diseases. AttivaMente will involve their direct beneficiaries of activities (people with Alzheimer and elder with social disadvantages), associations of families and relatives of people with these problems (as for example Fondazione Domani per Voi, Vicenza) and public authorities relevant on the topic (Municipality of Padua, Social Services Department, and medium-small cities).

La Mission

L’obiettivo condiviso dai componenti della cooperativa è quello  di rispondere con professionalità e competenza ai bisogni del territorio (istituzioni, imprese, nonprofit, ecc.) avendo a cuore prima di tutto le persone. La prospettiva forte  è quella di  operare  promuovendo una cultura dell’accoglienza, a partire dalle differenze come valore. Ci accomuna infatti la consapevolezza  che  tutte  le differenze di  sesso, età , genere, etnia, abilità,  diventano una preziosa risorsa che unisce e avvicina. Lo stile è quello della partecipazione, della cittadinanza attiva, della reciprocità. Da qui nasce l’impegno di attivare e mettere in rete le risorse del territorio, costruendo opportunità di lavoro, di comunicazione e di relazione.
