In late spring 2023 the partners of the Erasmus+ project SOLIS gathered in Palermo, Italy, to create a video about the grounding principles of the SOLIS project and its resources. The team filmed at Borgo Molara, a public green area on the outskirts of Palermo where there previously not been such a public space. The garden and communal meeting and play area is now a great asset to the local community and was brought into existence by SOLIS partner People Help the People. The area used to be a dumping ground and site of criminal activity and is now transformed into a greatly used space for the entire community, something that reflects the whole ethos of the project: to focus on a new future.

The partners representing the 8 countries of the SOLIS project visited the garden and planted an oak tree to permanently ground the project’s values.

The video introducing the garden and the SOLIS tree can be viewed here:
