Show More

So-called “atypical” and precarious workers who are not – at moment – categorized in any repertory of the actual labour market. From one side all what is considered the future of ICT professions: smart workers working everywhere, with a laptop and Internet connection, using foreign languages, as individuals or in small teams, responsible for their timetable, free-lances, precarious and paid depending on the reached goals or daily based. From the other side, the MOTHER workers: linked with the “motherland” and the local context, using hands and creativity, producing concrete objects, aiming at selling and develop small business, working in familiar environments especially in the field of craft, agriculture, food-agrarian chain but also health, beauty, wellness, textile, cooking. MOTHER partners represent for them a support team for a concrete virtual and physical meeting through the creation of an intellectual output: the “MOTHER social platform for business of youths”. MOTHER Platform is a virtual space to MEET, create an innovative professional profile, get to know each other and be guided with the goal to develop successful cooperation at local and international level. The mobility plan of the project foresees 2 Learning Mobilities: A training for e-coaches in Portugal, and “the M.O.T.H.E.R. Social Economic Forum – Calabria 2021” for potential MOTHER workers and Free Workers Online (FWO) in Soverato who meet after having started to use the platform to consolidate the cooperation and plan future developments. Coordinating partners organise 4 Transnational Project Meetings in Skopje, Hatvan, Kaunas and Larissa assuring efficient management and a dynamic coordination 2 series of Multiplier Events aimed at increasing the number of involved youths.

the Concept

M.O.T.H.E.R. idea was born in the deep south of Italy, in Calabria, which is the context more “in need” due to the highest youth unemployment rate of Europe (55.6% of the population unemployed between the ages of 15 and 24). Partners represent other local contexts with similarities and differences but at the European level, they are all part of the wider European framework characterised by a new emergent “youth unemployment”. At the base of the MOTHER project, there’s the state of the art that the worldwide labour market is changing faster than legislation and policies which don’t sustain a real sustainable development where youths play a central role. Media and ICT are powerful tools if used in the proper way; potential workers escape from the motherland to find new opportunities and jobs without knowing that, maybe behind the corner, there’s the person who can give them the right and competent “impulse” they need. MOTHER workers are stable and rooted to land traditions but they don’t know foreign languages, they would need a colourful attractive website but in the small town, there’s no the right web designer. A Free Worker Online is somewhere, sitting in a studio and could be the missing piece to complete the business puzzle of the MOTHER worker.
