Vulnerable groups of population with lower economic, social and health outcomes in: Italy, Finland, Serbia, Slovenia, Greece, Austria
CONTEXT/BACKGROUND OF PROJECT
Topics of sustainable life skills are not represented enough in the adult education sector, especially given their importance for individuals, the environment and the economy. Sustainable life skills can be especially beneficial to vulnerable groups of population with lower economic, social and health outcomes. At the same time vulnerable groups need a specific learning approach, adapted to their learning specific, values and daily needs.
The project will promote education about sustainable life skills in the adult education field and strengthen the capacity and ability of adult educators to address these topics with vulnerable groups of learners. We will examine and collect best practice examples from partner countries and the EU, create a handbook for educators, conduct training for groups of mentors and finally implement pilot testing of the workbook and mentors with various vulnerable target groups.
- 6 project meetings with presentation of best practice examples,
- analysis of the situation in the area of sustainable life skills education
- preparation of the handbook with good practice examples and recommendations for educators on how to teach vulnerable groups about sustainable life skills
- testing of the handbook and mentors with various vulnerable groups
- 1 short-term training event for mentors (educational methods, strategies for vulnerable target groups)
- Expected results and effects:
- usage of the handbook inside and outside partner organizations for education about sustainable life skills
- ability to upgrade or adapt the handbook with new content
- adult educators with increased ability to educate vulnerable target groups about sustainable life skills
