Liberi. Children, youth and community research group

Resilient children, young people and communities

The project entitled Children, young people and resilient communities: Identification and analysis of social and educational practices from a multi-dimensional and inter-sectional perspective to face the pandemic is one of the winners of AGAUR's PANDEMICS 2020. It is a project led by Dr Carme Montserrat, from the University of Girona's Liberi research group. 

The goals are:

  1. Identifying the ‘resilient practicals’ that exist, at both micro- and macro-level, to take on the pandemic through children and young people. Given that there are no specific measures available for assessing and, at the same time, promoting personal, social and community resilience processes in pandemic situations, the research project specifically proposes to make this contribution by focusing attention on vulnerable groups of children and young people at risk of social exclusion where there is a greater incidence of adverse health, educational, psychological, social and economic situations arising from the pandemic.
  2. Analysing intersectionality between groups and the cross-cutting nature of resilience.
  3. Constructing an analytical model that enables resilient practices in the heart of a community to be discovered and strengthened, to take on both the pandemic and its consequences.
  4. Disseminating and internationalising methodologies and results.

The project will last 18 months, from 14th May 2021 to 13 November 2022 and has a budget of €110,781.82.

The project will put the focus on children and young people (0-29 years) and the areas he will focus on will be family or community nucleus (flat/centre); the educational nucleus : a) Resource 0-3 years (nursery schools and CDIAP), b) Schooling 3-16 years, c) post-compulsory and higher Education; leisure; social and vocational integration; emancipation / independent life; and association-movement life (social network/community).

The following children’s groups and youth groups will be taking part: with functional diversity; foreign immigrants and children of immigrants; LGTBI; in situations of poverty; in residential or family shelters; and in situation of absenteeism.

The project will be carried out in Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella District; in Girona; in Olot, in Palafrugell and in Celrà.
