Building Bridges for Europe
In the Erasmus+ projects "Building Bridges for Europe" we will analyse european projects and activities with the focus on good practices in the areas of fostering critical thinking, European consciousness and solidarity and the reduction of prejudices. The project’s objective is the creation of an online Method-Toolbox which can be used by multiplier and stakeholders in the context of adult and especially older adult education programs and other european actions.
The Method-Toolbox should help to improve and extend the supply of high quality learning opportunities tailored to the needs of different target groups and individual learners. Collected will be methods of learning and transnational European cooperation, which will then be analyzed and adapted for work with the target groups of this project, especially older people, women, people with low education, and for learning settings (formal, non-formal, informal) in general adult education in Europe.
Over two years (2017-2019) the project will take place by four partnermeetings in Ruse, Ulm, Zagreb und Mola di Bari as well as by online-collobaration (e.g. video conferences, Social Media and other online tools). Taken into consideration will be various learning arrangements, target groups and differences in work conditions, culture, languages, as well as the educational and social framework of the respective countries and the applicability of the methods in the respective countries,focusing the cooperation of education providers from West, middle and Southeast Europe.
