Objectives of the partnership:

 

- To strengthen and preserve local cultures, languages and heritage in our local communities

- To disseminate local cultures and languages to others in order to break stereotyping

- To celebrate cultural diversity

- To promote equal opportunities regardless of age, gender, disability and race

- To develop creative approaches through communication

- To stimulate creativity

- To promote the use of new technologies for adults and older learners

- To improve language skills

 

The main subject we intend to address is to establish what makes us different and what we have in common as regards culture, language and heritage in order to break stereotyping and to avoid a wrong idea of globalization.We are different  but we have the same basic aims in life. Differences do not put us apart but help us to grow as individuals and as social beings. We intend to work this out through creativity and the use of new technologies. The themes covered will reflect the interests of the learners, including music, celebrations, food, local languages, art and literature

 

The approach will be focused on learner involvement, this taking an active, participative role in the activities, results, evaluation and dissemination of the results. This will encourage and develop teamwork and collaboration between different departments and students of different ages, genders, nationalities, backgrounds and educational needs.
