What can governments and international institutions do to encourage social integration and an inclusive “society for all.” What kind of policies are needed?
**Promote the value of respect for human life, of all peoples and cultures, based on the conviction that an authentic people is one that knows how to respect and care for the most defenseless and fragile life.
**Promote the recovery of a simplicity of life which strengthens family and neighborhood ties.
**The most disadvantaged social groups experience economic development policies that take them into account.
**Investment in educational and social programs with personalized attention to groups experiencing personal and social breakdown, thus avoiding ghettos of any social class.
**Policies of social integration without countries exploiting one another but working towards greater well-being such as in the phenomenon of emigration, the consequences of deforestation, development of food banks originating from excesses.
**Trade and aid projects to the poorest countries should not impede their use of their own resources for their own development.
Examples of good practices and programs that encourage social integration
~~In the School System, the project of attention to diversity by the entire Province, makes our Centers genuinely, welcoming the contribution of everyone who makes up the educational communities.
~~Social Integration Plans which coordinate actions for housing, food, formation, work, transportation, administrative support, leisure, without excluding anyone.
~~Project of Collaboration with other concerned groups in a residential welcome center for minors at social risk (abandoned, abused, mistreated, broken families, unaccompanied minors). Networking with Social Services for the integration of the minor into his/her family and of the family into their environment or, when this is not possible, with alternative, non-biological families.
~~Projects of collaboration with private institutions, developing programs of welcome to those of the ‘third age’, with scarce resources and without stable family support.
