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.
