Don Scaloni, who was the first provincial of the Salesian congregation in Belgium, published in 1903 the second edition of 'Capital & Travail'. This was a manual on social economy, which he used in the vocational school of Liège to teach his pupils the basics of social economy during their last 3 years of school. As such he followed the vocational school curricula which were being developed by the Salesians in Torino.
This video is a good introduction on NEETs, including defitions and youth work approaches to tackle it.
WHAT IS THE LIVING LIBRARY?
The Living Library is an innovative method designed to promote dialogue, reduce prejudices and encourage understanding. The main characteristics of the project are to be found in its simplicity and positive approach. The Living Library works exactly like a normal library – readers come and borrow a ‘book’ for a limited period of time. There is only one difference: the Books in the Living Library are human beings, and the Books and readers enter into a personal dialogue.
The Books in the Living Library are people representing groups frequently confronted with prejudices and stereotypes, and who are often victims of discrimination, prejudice or social exclusion. In this library, Books cannot only speak, but they are able to reply to the readers’ questions, and the Books can even ask questions and learn themselves.
