Project “Innovative methods of adult education for the future of Europe” arose from the need of response through adult education to the challenges which European Union is currently facing, particularly in the context of the migration crisis and society’s reaction to it.
We are experienced in working with adults in Poland, Spain, UK and Italy and want to share our best techniques and methods of working in order to find a solution of how to integrate marginalized groups to society and how to form public opinion to focus on important values, such as openness and respect for others.
We want this project to be only the first step, and that the produced results will be then put into practice. We assume that the results will be learning programmes, implementation plans and future projects of working with new techniques and methods directly with target groups.
