Project Summary

“Go Deep in Education: Developing New Competences for Adults Through Game and Community Actions” rapresent a follow-up project of the previous strategic partnership “Go Deep!”, carried out within the Erasmus+- Youth, from 2015 to 2017. Its main outcome was the creation of a methodology useful to work on training and education, competences development and group relations throughout actions aimed to promote change in local communities.
This new project was aimed at improving the methodology and the tools connected with it: ie. game and online platform, integrating a specific focus in the adult education field, especially un- or under-qualified adults, thanks to the local work that the partners implemented during the 24-months of activities, and trought the mutual exchange of best practices that emerged during the 14 local action realized in the different countries and social-cultural contexts.
Within the specific target of un- and under-qualified adults, we identified 3 categories to which the project wasmainly focus:
-Adults and young adults from a migratory background, refugees or asylum seekers with a low qualification, or which have finished an high educational path but are not be able to use their title and competences in the countries where they live now;
– Adults who gave up their educational pathways before the end;
– Unemployed/unoccupied adults or who lost their jobs at an advanced age which have consequently difficulties inserting in the labour market.

The activites realized during the project period (1 November 2017 – 31 October 2019) were the following:
– partners Kick Off Meeting (18 – 22 February 2018) in Monza (Italy);
