A call for applications for the selection of 71,550 volunteers to work in Universal Civil Service projects between 2023 and 2024 in Italy and abroad has been published on December 15 on the website of the Department for Youth Policy and Universal Civil Service.

Among the eligible intervention programs there is also "I Don't Take Risks 365: Good Civil Protection Practices" - promoted by Anpas - Associazione Nazionale Pubbliche Assistenze in collaboration with the Department of Civil Protection and Cima Foundation - which will involve 30 volunteers interested in exploring topics related to the I Don't Take Risks campaign.

Applicants can select from three projects related to the program: "'I Don't Take Risks 365: Volunteering" and "I Don't Take Risks 365: Population," both developed by Anpas, and "I Don't Take Risks 365: Communication" implemented by the Department in conjunction with the Cima Foundation. For this project, lasting one year, four young people who will have the opportunity to contribute to the dissemination of good civil protection practices by actively participating in the development of multimedia content to convey through the website and social channels of I Don't Take Risks. The goal is to approach risk communication from a new point of view, that of the new generations, to take full advantage of the languages and mechanisms that rule social media and broaden the campaign's target audience. Volunteers involved in the project will also play a supporting role in analyzing the results and communication languages used in the campaign until now, to improve its efficacy.

Communication and dissemination of best practices, and more. Choosing this project, the youths who will spend a year at the Department of Civil Protection and the Cima Foundation will have the opportunity to train on other relevant topics - of safety and risk reduction - dealing with people committed to prevention and emergency every day. Volunteers will gain an understanding of the functioning of the Civil Protection System and deepen their knowledge of the natural risks that affect our country, taking a first-hand look at the activities and tools used to monitor the national territory and the actions implemented by the Components and Operational Structures in case of emergency. The project represents a valuable opportunity for growth and training for those who want to be involved in an important service for the country and are willing to contribute concretely to the spread of the culture of prevention and respect for the environment and the territory.

All young people who, as of the date of application, are aged 18 and no older than 28 and hold Italian citizenship, or that of one of the other member states of the European Union or of a country outside the European Union as long as they are legally residing in Italy, may apply for the project " I Don't Take Risks 365: Communication."
