Inclusive and sustainable growth for adults through Outdoor Experiential Learning

Project number: 2021-1-RO01-KA210-ADU-000034959


The project aims to equip 80 adults in 8 small cities and suburbs in Romania and Italy with the knowledge and skills necessary to become catalysts for change in their communities regarding sustainable practices and environmental protection. It plans to create 8 non-formal learning opportunities using outdoor experiential learning tailored for potentially vulnerable learners, considering their unique educational needs, and to instill in adults a sense of responsibility for environmental stewardship. The project also seeks to promote a healthy and active lifestyle across all age groups and foster a socially inclusive learning environment where learners of diverse backgrounds can come together. Furthermore, it aims to enhance the competencies of partner organizations in utilizing Outdoor Experiential Learning and increase their capacity for cooperation in future projects. 

Additionally, the project intends to develop a set of best practices that can be implemented at European, national, and regional levels to showcase the benefits of adult education through Outdoor Experiential Learning and its role in addressing low adult training participation. These objectives directly align with priorities such as creating high-quality educational opportunities for adults, establishing upskilling pathways, cultivating environmentally conscious citizens, developing green skills, and contributing to the development of disadvantaged urban areas through the skill enhancement of the local population.
