Short summary:
The "INVOLVE Impact Assessment" report details the outcomes of a European Commission co-funded project aimed at enhancing the integration of third-country nationals through voluntary activities focused on environmental heritage recovery. Managed by partners in Italy, France, and Germany, INVOLVE leveraged local community hubs to engage migrants and locals in cooperative projects, fostering a sense of belonging and community enhancement. Over three years, the project reached about 10,000 people, involving 700 participants directly in environmental activities. Key findings include significant improvements in local cooperation, cultural integration, and communal ties, demonstrating the project's profound social impact on both individual participants and the broader community.
