7 EUROPEAN ORGANISATIONS JOIN FORCES IN LOGROÑO (SPAIN) TO PROMOTE ADULT EDUCATION AND MOBILITY FOR SOCIAL INCLUSION

From the next 27th November to 29thNovemberwill take place in Logroño (Spain) the first meeting of theEPAEMSI project(European partnership on Adult Education and Mobility for Social Inclusion). This project, co-funded by the European Commission through the Lifelong Learning Programme, is composed of 7 partners from: Spain, Malta, Romania, Poland, Slovenia, Italy and United Kingdom. Its aim is to use the experience of the partner organisations on social inclusion and the active participation of adult learners from disadvantaged social groups to promote and improve social inclusion through education, in particular non-formal and informal education.


Throughout the two-year project, partners will organise mobility activities and activities at local level in order to share their best practices on how to use education for social inclusion and bring light on the issue of social exclusion whilst using this opportunity to create more mobility projects as a mean to further enhance social inclusion. Adult learners will be from disadvantaged social groups and they will have an active and prominent role throughout the project by experiencing the best practices and providing feedback whilst benefiting from an intercultural experience.
