The institutions involved in this “Learning-to-be-Happy” project want to raise awareness of the needs of people in difficult situations due to the socioeconomic crisis. They will make use of their experience and expertise and contribute to build alternative paths and deliver a number of concrete and real alternatives for European citizens in difficulty in order to improve their life conditions.
The 16 project partners will co-operate in the most effective way to reach the highest number of adult European citizens, especially those alienated from education and training, such as early school leavers and the elderly, but also those belonging to other vulnerable groups or suffering from their personal, social and financial situation. They will provide them with some practical solutions to help them overcome what seems to be a hopeless situation for many of them and try to develop their self-esteem.
The LEARNING Vs CRISIS Project will establish a EU network among key actors in the educational-learning domain for disadvantaged persons. It is composed by 10 partners, such as no-profit cultural associations, EU learning & educational providers, Universities and Cities. This established network aims at developing practical non-formal courses, targeted to people at risk of social marginalisation, as well as at the production of specific best practices, accessible to all.
The best practices will propose practical solutions to support EU citizens coming from vulnerable social contexts. The courses will contain series of actions and tools to optimize the existing resources and to exchange processes.
The economic crisis has an enormous effect of the mental health. The jobless person gets easily in a depressed status and a depressed status can easily result in the loss of his/her job. The job center worker trying to help jobless people is not always prepared to manage and handle mental problems. The job center worker faces mental problems day by day, but in several cases is unable to handle the case in a way with sufficient expertise. This project helps job center workers widening their knowledge on mental issues, and helps job seekers in better observing their needs and requests in this field. The focus of this project is cooperation between vocational education and training and the work of life, developing and disseminating successful training methods. The participants of this project are: vocational schools, job center workers, psychologists, psychiatrists and coaches. The partners have a wide range of expertise, different approaches and methods in their every day work, and professionals with experience.
There are the knowledge fields that are essential for an active European citizen of nowadays: basic computer skills, reading and writing, and foreign languages. More and more things take place on the internet and the basic computer using is a must for everybody. On the other hand this leads to more and more isolation in our society and generations are drifting apart. Elder people are feeling ashamed for not knowing how to deal with modern communication systems and young people are not used to listen to seniors any more. The CLICK-project will invent a way to bring the generations together, to make use of the knowledge of the ancestors as well as the knowledge of the youngsters and to teach them both.
‘BeE – Be(coming) European’ is a EU-funded project which deals with challenges and opportunities of basic education for adults. Important questions that are addressed during the lifetime of the project are: How can basic education be defined, which learning and teaching approaches are successful, how can (disadvantaged) learners be motivated to participate in courses and to learn autonomously, which specific challenges are teachers facing in basic education …?
The project concentrates on fostering the dialogue between VET and work life to respond to the needs of employers, especially in terms of skills to be gained by students/future employees during their time in school. Project partners from VET schools, NGOs, labour market and guidance centers take part in this survey-based project in order to support transparency of VET and they believe that the project objectives are crucial to improve the employability in EU (as it is stated at Bruges Communiqué for enhanced EU Cooperation).
The FotoMemoria project, funded under the European program "Grundtvig Learning Partnerships" from October 2007 to July 2009, aims to help young people and adults to collect photographs and personal stories, and share their memories online.
