Our slogan “Europe in actions” reflects our desire to bring European dynamics to life at a local level so that the young people with whom we work, and our local and regional partners can benefit from a unique experience of Europe and openness in education.
We have a strong experience in projects related to youth and adult education and a lot of contacts in the field of vocational training. Our Educational mobility department actually gives the people the chance to experience learning mobility through European programmes (ESC, youth exchanges, training courses, etc). We work towards inclusion for hard too reach adult and young NEETs with the help of non-formal and popular education methods, such as storytelling.
We aim to augment local knowledge of Europe and European values: as a Europe Direct information centre (awarded by European Commission from 2013), we inform and stimulate the European debate at local level.
