Butterfly effect: Social inclusion from Krakow to Europe!

Between 21st and 24th September 2013, Stowarzyszenia WIOSNA hosted the fourth meeting of the European Partnership on Adult Education and Mobility for Social Inclusion (EPAEMSI) welcoming adult learners from disadvantaged social groups from Spain, Malta, Romania, Slovenia, Italy and United Kingdom. The Project, co-funded by the European Commission through the Lifelong Learning Programme, aims at using the experience of the seven partner organisations on social inclusion and the active participation of adult learners from disadvantaged social groups in order to promote and improve social inclusion through education, in particular non-formal and informal education.

During their time in Poland, the participants have taken part in a series of activities orientated at social inclusion through education. They first went on a tour of Krakow and attended the presentation of the hosting organisation and its main projects. Stowarzyszenia WIOSNA also presented to the participants their good practice:  “Practises of WIOSNA - How to believe in Yourself!” which was followed a workshop based on the good practice. Finally, the experience came to an end with the intercultural celebration prepared by the adult learners for the members of the public and local organisations. 

In order to continue with the work of the project, before the next transnational activity in Slovenia, a series of activities will take place at local level with trainers/teachers and adult learners from each organisation reflecting on the good practice presented in Poland.
