The first face-to-face project meeting of the E4ALL project took place from October 5th to 6th, 2021 in Riga. It was a pleasure to meet first time personally after several virtual meetings. The meeting was hosted by the Latvian Partner Ecological Future Education (EFE).
From each team, a minimum of one person took part in the meeting. On the Group image, you will see Agnieszka Dadak (PL). Carlos Trueba Rodriguez (ES), Cristina Arroyo Arroyo (ES), Hanna Urbanovich (IT), Damiano Stefano Verri (IT), Peter Mazohl (AT), Konstantina Iakovou (GR), Sofia Avramidou (GR), Megija Kalēja (LV), and Matiss Davis (LV).
The agenda was full: Reports from the first working year, presentation of activities, planning and structuring the project until the end, planning the next Learning-Teaching-Training event (scheduled for Madrid), and much more.
Personal meetings are useful, and especially in creative or cooperative work, they never can be replaced by virtual meetings (which are great for simple technical or organizational issues).
What will be the next activity? Up from this meeting the team will focus on Language Teaching, environmental teaching, and Erasmus+ issues.
Working on the project’s topics
Currently, the project teams work in the preparation phase for the first Learning-Teaching-Training event in Madrid. Background knowledge is created in each team, focusing on
- To explore and discuss the most current topics relevant for lifelong learning for all generations, supporting the educators at strengthening the key competencies of the adult learners.
- To bring together the perspectives of the young and senior adult educators and learners concerning lifelong learning to facilitate experience exchange and mutual inspiration.
- To promote lifelong learning for all generations – for social inclusion, reducing unemployment and skills mismatch, fighting xenophobia, facing migrations, sensible use of the new forms of communication.
- To build social capital and promote cohesion and trust by strengthening the adult education providers offering intergenerational learning.
