SEVENTH MOBILITY ACTIVITY IN THE UK

Between 6th and 9th June 2014, Engage Youth Empowerment Services (EYES) hosted the seventh and final 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 Italy. 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 the UK, 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: “the theatre of the oppressed”. 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 end of the project, 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 Wolverhampton.
