Building green skills for circular economy
Erasmus+ Partnerships for Cooperation
Project No. 2021-1-NL01-KA210-ADU-000033999
The international partnership of educational organisations from the Netherlands and Lithuania is working on developing an adult education program and open online course for young adults to raise their awareness about circular economy principles, encourage them to change their behaviour and develop their circular skills and competences.
Our non-formal learning methodology involves members of socially disadvantaged groups (senior citizens, people from remote rural areas and migrants from developing countries) as adult educators in this course in order to encourage them to share their experience, cultural heritage and creativity and to empower their social participation and social recognition.
FENAN Consulting offers education, research and consultancy in the areas of social innovation, digital communication, human-centred design and behavioural change. Our main areas of expertise include changing consumer behaviour to stimulate the adoption of sustainable innovations, designing healthy and inclusive public environments, developing innovative non-formal educational programs for adults and young adults with fewer opportunities (ethnic minorities, migrants) to support their professional development and entrepreneurial skills. We collaborate with universities, NGOs and commercial partners on research and innovation aimed at promoting circular economy, sustainable food chain, green energy, mobility, reusing and recycling products and materials.
Non-formal learning club “WE” (Neformalaus mokymosi klubas “MES”) is a non-governmental, nonprofit organisation born in an informal environment of non-vocational, non-formal experience-based learning. WE aim to stimulate people sharing their experience, knowledge, skills to inspire self-development. WE attempt to increase possibilities and scope for non-formal learning for adults, youth, seniors. WE actively participate in various projects and cooperate with different education and training institutions in Lithuania and across the EU.
