ABOUT CLEA

“The Community Living Educ-Actions are open ecosystems based on social innovation and participatory processes to enhance new socio-economic, educative and healthy living models”

“A common citizenship knowledge reflects in the society life, stimulating sustainable development, innovations and creative mindset”

The CLEA project contributes to respond to social and educational problems with a “living community-led co-design” and an “asset-oriented ethos”, supporting a positive social change and the development of local, national, international adult educational policy discourse.

The project partnership designed an inclusive and multi-agent methodology for adult education, tackling educational poverty and exclusion through an innovative strategy and inclusive community learning environments, contributing to:

  • EXTEND and develop educators’, artists’ and other professionals’ competences;
  • INCREASE the educational power of the participatory and active citizenship processes;
  • INTEGRATE teaching / learning methods through different transformative languages and experiences.

The project selected and integrated, at EU level, successful processes and methodologies in community participatory paths, enhancing individual and community informal learning, also through the recognition of the transformative developed competences.

It will consolidate local socio-educational networks to face adult educational poverty and promote inclusive and innovative educational methods, involving organizations and contexts not formally intended for education.
