Beehive South Value

The work that exists with South Working

Scenario

The “emptying” of the South, internal migration towards the center-north of Italy and external migration towards the “north” of the world is now a constant trend that especially impoverishes inland areas. It is a displacement of people, skills and knowledge that slows the development of local communities and empties smaller centers, depriving them of resources, identity and specificity.
However, the way in which the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has changed our habits, the needs of the inhabitants and the way we work tells us about a new possibility for the South. The boom of the so-called “smart workers” has led to a rethinking of business processes (public and private) and has opened the space to a new opportunity for the relaunch of territorial economies: southworking.

Territory: Trapani

Objective

For this reason, Beehive, a social cooperative society, was born, a social enterprise made up of three young people from Trapani: a community incubator in the city of Trapani aimed at promoting south working and accompanying formulas for social enterprises and young people in the area. Peculiar feature: turning to large national companies that allow their people to work from the South.

Activities

This model of sustainable development transforms the traditional idea of work: Beehive Valore Sud is in fact a community incubator that promotes local development through the new frontier of work and support for youth start-ups, creates opportunities for professional and personal growth, supports companies and professionals towards the digital transition.

Today Beehive is a community of people and organizations that animate this social enterprise which, through training events open to businesses and inhabitants, is a real “community incubator” where skills and knowledge remain in the territories and become a real economy by placing integral human development.
A real community incubator to create and restore value to the South through innovative projects with a social impact, the involvement of young people and the reduction of inequalities.

The role of the Community Foundation

The Community Foundation has seen in this change of trends in the world of work a new possible scenario for the restart “in the South” and the support of young people for the creation of job opportunities.
The Community Foundation has promoted and supported the birth of Beehive with a donation to support the start-up phase and with a constant path of accompaniment and networking.
