ImplOED – for a more inclusive and equal society

The ImplOED – Implementing outreach, empowerment and diversity project offers policy-makers and adult educators tools to engage socially and educationally disadvantaged adults in lifelong learning. We aim at ensuring learning opportunities for marginalised groups, such as migrants, minorities and adults that are caught in a low-skilled trap, thus making adult education more inclusive.

We contribute to:

  • a better awareness of policy-makers on how to increase participation in adult learning;
  • a stronger outreach capacity of adult education institutions;
  • more empowered and active citizens based on their learning and development;
  • a stronger involvement of learners in education structures and in the society.
