DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
NEW HORIZONS is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting social development and cultural preservation for the local territory and bridging the local population to the constantly changing world outside by means of education and training, information service, and international cooperation. It is founded and run by
young professionals who are designing, implementing and evaluating local and international youth projects.
NEW HORIZONS is dedicated to creating and implementing educational concepts that allow participants to develop a self-defined strategy of learning in the framework of non-formal education.
In essence, the founding members aim to construct “new horizons” in the imminent future of the people and crucially young people in their city of residence. Based in Tusa, a small ancient town of approximately 3,000 inhabitants in the province of Messina (Italy), New Horizons takes the initiative to rediscover, revitalize, and relaunch a floundering town dealing with depopulation, youth unemployment and the shortage of socio-cultural services for its remaining residents.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
