30 March, 2015
Professionals and users of the Zona Franca Integral Equipement of the City of Barcelona, managed by Suara Cooperative, participated in the conference "Get a different result. Get people involved", organized by the European Federation of National Organisations working with the Homeless (FEANTSA), together with the Care Network for Homeless People (XAPSLL, for its Catalan acronym) and Arrels Foundation.
The conference, held on March 5th in the Macaya Palace of Barcelona, focused on participation as a tool for the empowerment of homeless services users, a tool that allows users to be part of the decision making process about the development and operation of services they use: "It was a very enriching and innovative experience that marks the way for a paradigm shift in attention to the homeless people," says Anna Garcia, social educator at the Zona Franca Integral Equipment.
