Us&Them is a two year Erasmus+ project aiming to train educators who are working with adults to promote tolerance and understanding of the ‘others’ in a multicultural world.

The Project will improve the multicultural skills of the educators from the field of Adult Education (AE) and will offer high quality learning opportunities for learners living in mixed communities. To create a multicultural and mixed group, the project is made up of 8 participating countries encompassing various traditions, cultures, religions, this way valorising experiences that belong to representative cultures: Christian, Muslims, Jewish, Hindu.

Us&Them project will strengthen education and training paths of AE educators and will help them develop a set of new skills and competences (especially soft skills in socio-cultural conflict management, multicultural skills development to adapt the learning environment to various cultures and backgrounds, skills on implementing positive attitudes toward language, race, cultural & ethnic diversity, skills on managing learners’ group diversity), needed to enable them to better manage and deal with their groups of adult learners in the field of living, working and getting integrated within nowadays multicultural societies/communities. The newly acquired competences will be used by AE educators to promote (among their learners) tolerance and understanding of “the other” in such communities.

The consortium is made up of the following organisations:

 

Partner 1 GIE Romania
Partner 2 CARDET Cyprus
Partner 3 FUERM Spain
Partner 4 LMETB Ireland
Partner 5 Staff Consult S.r.l Italy
Partner 6 ANJAF Portugal
