BEEP Final Conference

As part of the Erasmus+ BEEP project, we worked intensively on issues of participation and adult education. Together with our partner organisations in Greece, Italy, Portugal and Ireland, we carried out a comprehensive survey of citizen participation processes. In interviews, we analysed who is excluded from democratic processes, who is involved and what goals and interests are associated with the term “participation”. Workshops with learners have helped to find concrete ways of participation.

We would like to present the results of this extensive project to you:
