The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has clearly stated that inclusion should also apply in adult education: people with a disability should be able to participate in adult education in the same way as all other people. The project “All inclusive – adult education and inclusion: new cooperative approaches ALL IN” creates innovative products that are intended to support adult educators, to implement adult education in a practical and needs-based manner.

Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce is crucial to Europe’s innovative capacity and global competitiveness. Yet women are vastly underrepresented in STEM jobs and among STEM degree holders despite making up almost half of the E.U. workforce and half of the college-educated workforce. That leaves an untapped opportunity to expand STEM employment in Europe. Among STEM jobs, women’s representation has varied over time. In computer and math workforce (the largest of the four STEM components), women representation has dropped 3 percentage points since 2000. Engineers are the second largest STEM occupational group, but only about one out of every seven engineers is female. Men are much more likely than women to have a STEM job regardless of educational attainment. In this context, the principal objective of FeSTEM project is to promote an innovative method and pedagogy that will allow HE students to use traditional and computationally-rich media to create meaningful, shareable exhibits that will act as mentoring models for encouraging girls and women to remain active in STEM.

International reports like PISA or TALIS reveal the great social and education challenges within school systems nowadays. The dramatic dropout rate of students in compulsory secondary education and the unequal results of students (depending on their social and economic context) are just two issues tackled in this project. Reducing the dropout rate is also an objective for the European 2020 targets. In Spain, there is 14% school absenteeism; in Italy it is 18.7%. Other objectives included in the ET 2020: to foster social cohesion and equality in communities and improve quality and efficiency in education; to make use of innovative measures to combat demotivation and absenteeism. To achieve that 15% of the adult population will engage in lifelong learning programs (which accept participants from 25 to 64 years old). The target group will be immigrant adults who are parents of primary and secondary students. The Education 2030 document stresses the Education Council’s recommendation of improving the teaching-learning of foreign languages. As for new technologies, this project will include the creation of an e-learning platform for parents on various topics: the host country’s education system, psychological support for teenagers, language assistance for specific terms related to education and translations into Arabic, English and French.

Through the HE.CO project, project partners intend  to promote a path for museum system operators, local officials and administrators (in particular small centers), aimed at promoting knowledge and acquiring skills and best practices for the enhancement of the vast cultural heritage spread over its territory. Effective valorisation can not only rely on the availability of the “raw material” (tangible, intangible or natural), but must provide nad work on the issues of economic and management sustainability. This is why programming is important, as it is the development of an integrated  or systemic, use of the cultural, environmental and tourism resources of the territory.

Education plays a vital role in people’s lives. It helps in shaping successful people, giving them the opportunity to become productive members of the society, performing a crucial role in counteracting the negative effects of poverty and social exclusion. Either by not being engaged in education, training or employment, the so-called N.E.E.Ts, or by leaving school in an early stage, young people run a high risk of finding themselves excluded from social life. As the phenomenon of ESL affects over 4 million people across the EU countries, and it is actually considered as one of the main challenges in education policy and one of the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy, there is an urgent need to focus on this problem. Alongside, the number of NEETs has increased with a percentage of 15.5% in 2017 with some EU countries having a percentage of NEETs overcoming the 20% (Eurostat, 2018). The lack of upper secondary education is a major obstacle to a successful entry to the labour market, and one youth in six being NEET faces a current and future unemployment and wage penalties, major psychological consequences such as stress, exclusion and often involvement in risky behaviours (Eurofound, 2012).

To respond to these tough circumstances, the project aims to promote ideas and tools based on positive thinking so to help youth workers to reach and support those vulnerable groups. Carefully chosen methodologies, will boost youth workers ability to help people who are NEETs or ESL to rebound back in society. Being NEET or ES Leaver is strongly related with low motivation, low resilience, sense of initiative and proactivity.

YEAR: 2019

Due to the ongoing refugee crisis and migration waves reaching Europe from Asian and African countries, many thousands of migrant and refugee children have reached the EU countries and have, following different processes in each country, managed to enter the host countries’ school educational systems. This has put the educational systems in all receiving countries under considerable stress, especially in countries of the South of Europe like Italy and Greece that have received the greatest numbers of refugees and migrants to-date due to their position as EU bordercountries, as well as in final destination countries for migrants and refugees fleeing to Europe, like Norway. The schools receiving migrant and refugee children are often not prepared to integrate these new pupils to the school community and provide a safe learning environment for key skills like language learning. The “Open Education for Young Europeans through History, Art and Cultural Learning” project (Open EYE) focuses on creating an open learning methodology based on History, Arts and Cultural Learning, as well as the necessary implementation tools, that will enable teachers of primary education in Europe (formal and non-formal) to support their students in language learning and integration in their school and community, in nowadays multilingual and multicultural classrooms.

Thousands of pupils and teachers stayed at home and been forced to adapt to online teaching from scratch due to the ongoing COV19 requiring measures. The processes were different in every school and left to be designed by the teacher itself as the whole education system did not manage to adapt. Beyond instructional goals, teachers were also required to maintain social integration of pupils while significant disruption to the provision of classes in the specialized classrooms, excursions etc happened. This project aims to use Art to overcome barriers to online learning of science subjects, to aid better learning outcomes and engage in positive learning experiences. Different types of art and art expressions can be used to introduce pupils to new ways of online learning, achiving learning outcomes based on the curriculums and reduce the feeling of social isolation.

According to Eurodesk (2018), young Europeans aged 15 to 29 are increasingly using digital applications and social networks to have fun, learn, make friends and share news. Research shows that fake news in social media attracts more attention than real, spreads rapidly across the web and through social media, and reaches a large number of people (Kumar & Shah, 2018). The SPOTit project seeks to respond to this challenge by supporting the development of media literacy skills for young people (aged 18 to 35) so that they can make informed decisions about the information they access through social media.
