Cultural education

International Conference on Good Examples of Adult Education, (within the Implementation of European Agenda for Adult Learning) took place on October 3&4 in İstanbul.  Adult Education experts, teachers,learners, ambassadors of NGO and municipalities attended the conference. We could see and share good examples of adult education in Turkey.

Not always the old historical buildings are accessible to people on a wheelchair, or even not all their parts can be considered accessible (for example, very often the sky terraces aren’t accessible). Does it mean that people on a wheelchair cannot enjoy of the scenic views from the top of a bell tower or that they cannot visit an old castle?


The current European crisis of refugees and migrants has created a new challenges to the adult education system as in many European countries ther is a rather small range of adult educators, who have sufficient professional competencies to work with this challenging target group of learners. 

The Advenus project aims to improve and extend the offer of high quality, culturally sensitive open access e-learning resources to adult refugees, and their trainers and teachers in EU countries.

We are able offer five open access courses, translated into five different languages. This is the result of an international research collaboration between INN University of Applied Sciences in Norway (coordinator), LUMSA University in Italy, University of PORTO in Portugal, and Community Development Institute in Macedonia.  Advenus is funded by the EU and Erasmus+.
