38 "European Partnership on Adult Education and Mobility for Social Inclusion" - Malta UNESCO Youth Association Past Projects Romania The European Partnership on Adult Education and Mobility for Social Inclusion (EPAEMSI) was a Grundtvig partnership composed of 7 partners from: Spain, Malta, Romania, Poland, Slovenia, Italy and United Kingdom. It aimed to use the experience of the partner organisations on social inclusion and the active participation of adult learners from disadvantaged social groups to promote and improve social inclusion through education, in particular non-formal and informal education. Throughout the two-year project, partners organised mobility activities and activities at local level in order to share their best practices on how to use education for social inclusion and bring light on the issue of social exclusion whilst using this opportunity to create more mobility projects as a means to further enhance social inclusion. Adult learners from disadvantaged social groups had an active and prominent role throughout the project by experiencing the best practices and providing feedback whilst benefiting from an intercultural experience. The sharing of the knowledge and information gathered throughout the project with other public and private organisations helped contribute to improving the quality of educational activities for social inclusion and increasing mobility opportunities for those who most need it.
37 "DANTE: Development of Audit guideliNes for Training and Education" - IZI Ltd. t/a Easy School of Languages Past Projects Spain This partnership has successfully managed to introduce adult students to comprehensive audit guidelines for assessing the environmental performance of education institutions (and beyond), thereby also training them to identify problem areas where intervention may result in considerable, yet resource-efficient improvements. Our goal was to encourage participating professionals and institutions to incorporate sustainability better into their curriculum. The audit guidelines developed by the partnership have been tried and tested amongst all the partners and are available upon request for free via the partnership's website. During our cooperation, the information and knowledge present in different institutions was combined to form a knowledge base that is more comprehensive and promotes synergy between different institutions, countries and approaches to the sustainability audit. The DANTE audit guidelines are a tangible proof that much can be achieved via cooperation and collaboration between institutions in different educational fields. Furthermore the benefit of having partners all over Europe gives the developed material a multi-angle and a multi-cultural perspective which cannot be achieved by a single participant confined to one particular country.

35 "Plan to Preserve our Pretty Planet" - St. Joseph Junior School, Sliema Past Projects Ireland The project involved 7 European schools catering for children from 5 to 15. Partners shared the strong belief that every person’s ability to deal responsibly with their own environment is a key-competence to preserve and promote a good quality of life for all in society. At a transnational level, social changes such as the increase in the use of goods and power, climate change, declining water and energy resources, shrinking biodiversity, threats to food security and health risks bring about the need for the development of a more suitable code of behaviour aimed at the protection of the quality of life for present and future generations. Children and teenagers living in a media oriented, consumption based society are over exposed to messages and models leading to a careless consumption of goods and energy, a fast replacement of belongings, an increasing production of waste, a careless treatment of the environment -starting from their own room, passing through their class and school, ending to streets or nature areas where they walk. Education has a responsibility in raising awareness about the environmental challenges and schools should equip learners with the adequate knowledge and competences for a sustainable development. In fact, this project provided an opportunity for teachers, pupils and parents to reflect upon this attitude and find effective answers to these self-destructive trends. The project helped the school to develop a ‘whole-school’ approach to ESD which helped to harness the motivation and commitment of all pupils and students, developed their critical thinking and improved their educational attainment in general. We strove to be sustainable organisations and acted as role models, by integrating the principles of sustainable development in policy and practice, i.e. through energy-saving, building and working with natural resources, and developing a sustainable purchasing and consumer policy. All stakeholders became active participants: school leaders, teachers, pupils, the school board, administrative and supportive staff, parents and the local community. From a methodological point of view we strove to embed ESD in each partner school curriculum tailoring it to each level of education. Teachers embraced pedagogical challenges in teaching a subject such as ESD, they cooperated and compared experiences and shared successful innovative practices.
34 "Aboard the Citizenship" - Aġenzija-Żgħażagħ Past Projects Malta This project consisted of a national youth meeting which included a number of activities in various localities around the island over a period of nine days linked to European Youth Week in order to enable at least 450 young people (who are not participating in youth organisations and groups/projects and also those with fewer advantages) to share their views/perception and expectations of issues that pertain them such as, education, employment., leisure and culture with local, national and European politicians. The activities used non formal methods of learning such as art, forum theatre, dance, sports and music. Throughout the activities a 'consultation boot' was set up to serve as a space where young people can share their views/perceptions.
33 "Green Beyond Borders" - Nadur Youth Council Past Projects Gozo "Green Beyond Borders" is the Youth Exchange programme planned by the Nadur Youth Council which took place between 11-19 August 2013. They hosted 20 youths aged between 17-25 hailing from Romania, Hungary, Turkey, Malta and Poland. There was a team leader from each group, making up the total of 25 participants. Most of the activities took place in Gozo, but they also held workshops in Malta and Comino to give a full experience of the archipelago. Satisfied with the relatively positive results that the NYC has so far achieved on a local level, the beneficiary was determined to turn this into a European-wide experience. Through this youth exchange, the beneficiary promoted the roles of youths as active European citizens who should be aware of the strong weight that we all carry in the formation of a more successful EU. The beneficiary used the channel of raising environmental awareness as a means by which to render EU youths democratically proactive on a European level (and not just national). Hence, the name of the application 'Green beyond Borders'. The NYC envisaged a programme which: created environmental awareness among youths to reinforce their responsible behaviour which would support the implementation of EU directives targeted at creating a more sustainable environment and healthy living; empowered youths through activating and familiarising them with the natural environment (that of Gozo, Comino and Malta in this case) and equip them with various methods to sustain it; created environment leaders who can disseminate knowledge, skills, responsibilities and positive vibes to the young generations at home; developed a deeper understanding of the importance of unified action in the protection of this borderless heritage of the environment. Collectively, all of these aims are meant to make the participants aware that 'Your Voice and Your Choice Count'. This tied in neatly with our duties of EU citizens who should not only recognise and fight for our rights, but also be active in sustaining a more unified, supranational union of democratic citizens that carry a huge potential in ensuring continued European peace that can be exported to neighbouring countries and beyond. Taking place only a couple of months before the MEP elections in 2014, the NYC held that it would play an important role in cultivating a stronger duty to participate actively and positively in sustaining a stronger EU, of which the environment is by and large one of its main concerns. Based on these two pillars, the NYC has drafted and successfully implemented a well-thought programme which promoted a stronger and more proactive attitude towards the environment, in particular, and EU citizenship, in general. The project had the double aim of strengthening the concept of European citizenship through a focus on the role which European citizens have in promoting a common asset of all EU member states: the environment. The relation between these two spheres is mainly found in the need to kill off the indifference which several EU citizens are hit by, namely an indifference to see to the smooth democratic functioning of the EU and to take care of the environment beyond localities and countries. Striking against this passivity, the beneficiary brought youths from different European countries and cultures, with different backgrounds and ranging perspectives, to explore means and ways of how to become more conscious of our status as European citizens with a set of obligations and rights. One such thing is the right to a clean environment and the duty to actively participate in the strengthening of a Europe-wide effort to preserve the environment that is the natural, human, marine as well as historical. Although active EU citizenship and being actively ‘green’ are the focus of the programme, they sought to offer a near-holistic experience to the visiting youths by addressing other social concerns such as voluntary work and drug abuse. With a view to promoting interaction, they also allowed enough space and time for the exploration of each other's cultures and traditions. Sports also helped to bring these persons closer together, while promoting healthy living.

20 Speak! Listen! 1-7 March 2015 Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCA) Hungary Attending a course named “Speak! Listen!
