Using traditional and new media to increase the impact of adult education initiatives to fight prejudice, xenophobia and discrimination

This project is a GRUNDTVIG Learning Partnership project, consisting of 6 organizations from 4 countries: the Netherlands, France, the UK, and Turkey. It aims at exchanging different European adult education strategies using traditional and new media to increase the impact of initiatives to fight prejudice, xenophobia and/or discrimination mechanisms. Special emphasis will be put on low-threshold non-formal strategies targeting learners from underprivileged or marginalized backgrounds.

Over a period of two years, from 2012 – 2014, the partner organisations will visit each other and exchange best practices in adult education to use traditional media (newspapers, documentaries, etc.) or new media (such as the internet, social media, phone-based applications, etc.) to fight various forms of prejudice, xenophobia and discrimination (racism, antisemitism, islamophobia, antitsiganism, homophobia, sexism, social marginalization, etc.). Their strategies should be accessible and transferable in a low-income context.

The partners will reflect on the common elements used to marginalize groups in European societies, and identify elements of successful adult education practices using traditional or new media, as well as explore their transferability. The partners will to involve learners in as many aspects of this learning partnership as possible.

The partnership will enable the participating organisations to reflect and transfer best practices as well as to develop a common European perspective on the topic. As a result of the partnership, a success-story booklet presenting transferable educational strategies using traditional or new media from all over Europe will be published for further use as a European learning resource in this field. A short film will also be produced to promote the publication of the booklet.

This European project took place between 2009 and 2011. It was a Key Activity 4 (KA4) project in scope of the Life Long Learning Programme (LLP) of the European Commission.

The consortium included international educational organisations, universities and research centres, which worked together on Good Practices for Dissemination and Valorisation of Educational Projects.

The main aim was to carry out European studies about successful educational projects and to evaluate them based on specifically defined criteria. The final products of this process are a handbook for project co-ordinators, a best-practice catalogue and recommendations.
