From silent social work to community networks

In the sphere of social work – the varied collection of experiences in the Third sector: volunteering, social cooperation, social entrepreneurship, social awareness associations – reference is constantly made to the need for creating networks; often, however, there’s the impression that this intention does not exceed expectation. What seems to be missing are the research and the qualification of shared general objectives, capable of determining structural changes. Therefore, the issue is linked to the perception organizations have of their own role: important players capable of providing answers to the needs of the weak, but who perhaps are hesitant to consider their work as essential in reinforcing community culture and qualifying social capital. In other words, reluctant to consider themselves as subjects capable of a political dimension.
