JUMP is a cultural organization born in Calabria in 2012 from the will of a team of young adults who studied and worked years out of the region Calabria with the same common interest in Europe, its functioning, institutions and values. Coming back to the native land they discovered that many things could have been done to improve the situation and be active players in the wider European framework. Calabria is a beautiful territory, with charming natural places, the Ionian sea and long sandy beaches, high mountains, lovely hills and historical hamlets. On the other hand, the region is poor and underdeveloped with two main problems: youth unemployment and depopulation. JUMP wants to solve especially these problems through the development of opportunities of networking, learning and growing. JUMP works at the international level remaining reliable to the local valorisation and it’s involved in a permanent activity of project design and management.

JUMP’s mission is to give a strong value to the “Youth Spirit” we all should have inside to react and take action. That’s why the second name is “Gioventù in riSalto” that literally means “highlight youth”. While JUMP as the first “keyword” wants to express the launch we should do towards life, all along life. 

JUMP has the long term vision that what is international can have an impact on the local and develop social innovation. People make the difference and it’s their union which can bring a positive change. 

Thanks to an intensive work of relationship building, international cooperation and continue learning on EU topics, JUMP matured an almost 10 years experience in:

  • EU project design and management, especially in the topics of social entrepreneurship, social innovation, cultural studies in business, cultural heritage, green economy/ecology, circular economy, innovation in education and game-based learning;
  • Teachers training on many topics which are the result of a continuous research of experts and teacher trainers;
  • Organization of events;
  • Web-design and web-content production
  • Video-making
  • Social media dissemination and marketing

He proposed to unite the French and West German coal and steel industries. This led to the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community, which became the first European Community
