The LUCIDE project and network: Languages in Urban Communities – Integration and Diversity for Europe
Abstract: The University of Rome “Foro Italico” Language Centre was a partner of the LUCIDE project and network. The project, funded by the European Commission Lifelong Learning Programme, aimed to gather a comprehensive picture of how communication occurs in multilingual/multicultural settings across the EU and beyond, to develop policy ideas about how to manage the new, complex citizen communities, and to use the gathered information to support institutions for a better use of diversity as an economic resource and for enhanced mutual understanding. Universities and institutions from all over the EU and from Canada and Australia were among the 16 partners of the network.
The objectives of the project included: 1) to analyse the realities of multilingual cities in education, the economy, civil society and cultural life.; 2) to propose policy directions to support the diverse realities of multilingual cities; 3) to examine the connections between cities, the common communication and cultural space; and 4) to propose a vision for the city of the future. At the centre of the network’s activity was the LUCIDE website, a repository of documents, reports and multimodal examples of good practice.
