This project has been funded with support from the European Commission
Vulnerable groups of population with lower economic, social and health outcomes in: Italy, Finland, Serbia, Slovenia, Greece, Austria

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.

  • exchange of best practices on the topic of education of vulnerable groups for sustainable life skills
  • strengthening the capacity of adult educators and the sector for education of vulnerable target groups on the topic of sustainable life skills
  • exchange of learning materials and methods among adult educators
  • strengthening of partner networks
  • strengthening the capacity for transnational cooperation and activities
  • mutual learning and finding new solutions to address the topic

The outcomes of the project are:

  • final report of the six partners and creation of a digital best practice tool on environmental, economic and social sustainability in English and the native languages of each partner;
  • devising a plan for dissemination by designing a dedicated web page and social channel content.

This is a project called Life Education, funded by the European Union through a program called Erasmus+. It involves several European countries such as Slovenia, Austria, Greece, Serbia, Italy and Sweden. The main objective is to promote sustainability in various aspects of life, such as work, the economy and the environment. The project focuses on adult education and aims to improve sustainable living skills among disadvantaged groups such as youth, migrants and businesses.

This is an opportunity for educators to learn new skills and methods for teaching these topics effectively. The project’s approach is practical: best practices will be shared, educational materials developed and training courses conducted for educators and vulnerable groups. Furthermore, new ideas and solutions will be tested to address these issues in an innovative way.
