This project aims to raise public awareness of the issue related to irregular employment of foreign-born people working for the agricultural sector and legally staying in the country. To that end, relationship building with beneficiaries and information are absolutely key alongside educational pathways, work placement and community-based programmes. Public awareness is raised through social action and resource sharing involving citizens as well as local stakeholders in the implementation of sustainable practices in the medium to long term future. The project is based on capacity building which emphasises and promotes the acquisition of skills to be used and devoted to the workplace and the local community. The fight against irregular employment can be won through public awareness and social action. Here networking comes as a key asset too for us seeking to design and implement as well as test and verify the efficiency and the effectiveness of our intervention model.

Outputs: Project reports, resources used for the implementation and the documentation of key actions.

Results: the emergence of irregular employment from the shadow economy, work placement and development of good practices.

Expected impact: greater awareness and better quality of employment service to foreign-born workers in agriculture.
