Target of the project 'Promoting the idea of mutual self-education' was to disseminate the concept of collective self-directed learning to a wider audience. The concept describes a non-formal process of education which is organized collectively and which is tailored to the needs and interests of the participants. It was developed by ADI and is currently being put to practice for more than two years now.

Two european volunteers were involved in the project. Their activity started off by getting to know the organization and its customers, as well as becoming familiar with different autodidactic methods.

The main mission of the volunteers was to initiate a dialog about self-directed learning with the local residents, in order to map out their educational needs in the context of mutual self-education. For this purpose they conducted simple interviews and polls, under the guidance of ADI members and their mentor. After that, the residents were invited to the ADI and activities were planned according to the results of the research.

Thus, we hope to motivate people to pursue studying and developing their interests, in a consistently manner.

The conversations, interviews and other results of the collectively organized activities were presented in an event for the public.


Results for this project are not available.
