Social participation in Norway: Empowering local youth in their quest for social inclusion through employment and social entrepreneurship in Oslo - The Norwegian case is located in the area of Gamle Oslo district, the city's second most populated district. Diversity and a great variation in living conditions characterize Gamle Oslo and provide challenges as well as opportunities for its youth. The researchers from OsloMet are particularly interested in existing (or lacking) job opportunities for local youth, and how social entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, non-governmental organizations, and public institutions can increase these opportunities. To find out more, young co-researchers from Gamle Oslo will engage in dialogue forums, living lab sessions, a national workshop, participant observation, fieldnotes, walkalongs, surveys, debriefs, logging as well as developing and testing of the Spotteron app. The entire research team explores the following questions: How is the experience of social inclusion among young people in Gamle Oslo District connected to employability and social entrepreneurship? How are opportunities for work and social enterprise located within the community of Gamle Oslo district? What are the challenges when it comes to social inclusion for youth and young adults in the larger society of Norway? The young co-researchers will engage local stakeholders from both the private and public sector in finding creative ideas to develop local job opportunities for youth. The Intercultural Museum (IKM) will serve as a living lab, making it a hub for all the project activities.

Det norske caset vil foregå i bydel Gamle Oslo, en bydel som kjennetegnes av mangfold og stor variasjon i levekår, noe som fører til både utfordringer og muligheter for lokal ungdom - Forskerne i OsloMet-teamet er spesielt interessert i eksisterende (eller manglende) jobbmuligheter for lokal ungdom, og vil finne ut hvordan sosiale entreprenører, lokale ideelle organisasjoner, frivillige organisasjoner og offentlige institusjoner kan øke disse mulighetene. Sammen med lokale ungdomsforskere vil forskerteamet utforske spørsmålene: Hvordan er opplevelsen av sosial inkludering blant unge i bydel Gamle Oslo knyttet til arbeid og sosialt entreprenørskap? Hvordan er mulighetene for arbeid og sosial virksomhet lokalisert i Gamle Oslo bydel? Hva er utfordringene når det gjelder sosial inkludering for ungdom og unge voksne i storsamfunnet i Norge? Ungdomsforskerne i prosjektet vil gjennomføre spørreundersøkelser, intervjuer, deltagende observasjon, samt delta på dialogforum og living lab sesjoner. De vil dokumentere forskiningsprosessen underveis og analysere dataene de samler inn. I tillegg vil ungdomsforskerne engasjere lokale samarbeidspartnere (stakeholders) fra både privat og offentlig sektor for å sammen kunne utvikle kreative ideer for å gi ungdom bedre jobbmuligheter. Interkulturelt museum (IKM) på Grønland vil fungere som et levende laboratorium (living lab) og vil dermed bli et knutepunkt for all aktivitet som foregår i prosjektet.
