A panel of experts from the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission has selected the EAEA-coordinated Outreach, Empowerment, Diversity (OED) Grundtvig Network as a "success story". The project that run between 2012 and 2014, tackled the need for outreach to marginalized groups, especially migrants and ethnic minorities, for the development of more diversity in adult education, and especially the inclusion of learners' voices, and for the empowerment of its learners to become active European citizens.
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.
