SIXTH MOBILITY ACTIVITY IN ITALY



Between 20th and 23rd February 2014, Cantiere Giovani hosted the sixth 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, Poland, Slovenia and the 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 Italy, the participants have taken part in a series of activities orientated at social inclusion through education. They first attended the presentation of the hosting organisation and its main projects, before experiencing the good practice of the hosting organisation: an awareness campaign on sustainable mobility through photo-reporting workshop. Adult learners also got the opportunity to share with the other organisations, the work they have done at local level in preparation for this meeting. 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 final transnational activity in the United Kingdom, 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 Italy.
