DESC Developing Empowered Sustainable Communities: Green LifeStyle, Cultural Heritage & Economy

Erasmus+ project DESC will promote people’s RIGHT TO ACCESS SERVICES they need to re-engage in training thus
preventing social exclusion. In this respect, the project makes a direct contribution to the 1st pillar of the “European Pillar of
Social Rights in 20 principles”. (Education, training and life-long learning offering a way to engage and motivate adult
learners to increase their basic and transversal skills in order to enable them to participate fully in society and manage
successfully transitions in the labour market).
The project will be based on adult learners’ needs analysis, accumulating international valuable experience of experts in the
field and adult education, providing innovative learning approach and ensuring user-friendly digital learning tools.
Climate change is now acknowledged by most international organisation and public bodies to be a priority for action. This
project aims at connecting this climate priority with improving the availability of high-quality opportunities for adults. The
project goes together with UN 2030 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, priority in EU Strategic Agenda 2019-2024:
“building a climate-neutral, green, fair and social Europe”.
Climate change and cultural heritage are interconnected. However, sustainability is one of the five pillars of the Framework
for Action on Cultural Heritage, which highlights its potential to enhance social capital, boost economic growth and secure
environmental sustainability.
