Malta UNESCO Youth Association (MUYA) is to joins forces with six other European NGOs to promote adult education and mobility for social inclusion. The first meeting of the EPAEMSI project (European partnership on Adult Education and Mobility for Social Inclusion) will take place in Logroño (Spain) between 27th – 29th November 2012.
This project is co-funded by the European Commission through the Lifelong Learning Programme and brings together partner organisations from Malta, Spain, Romania, Poland, Slovenia, Italy and United Kingdom. Its aim is to use the experience of the partner organisations on social inclusion and the active participation of adult learners from disadvantaged social groups to promote and improve social inclusion through education, in particular non-formal and informal learning methods.
Throughout the two-year project, partners will organise mobility events and activities at local level in order to share their best practices on how to use education for social inclusion. One of the objectives is to bring light on the issue of social exclusion whilst using this opportunity to create more mobility projects as a mean to further enhance social inclusion. The group of participants will mainly include adult learners from disadvantaged social groups. They will have an active and prominent role throughout the project by experiencing the best practices and providing feedback whilst benefiting from an intercultural experience.
Ms Birgit Oidram and Thelma Bonello will be representing MUYA as project coordinators in the first mobility activity in Logroño. For further information about the project or participation kindly contact the project coordinators on firstname.lastname@example.org.
