A FEW WORDS ABOUT
What we do
We share methods for adult education and make women’s perspectives visible.
Adult learning is empowerment. We work with non-formal methods to promote self-expression and self-efficacy, but also intercultural understanding, gaining knowledge, practising mutual respect, tolerance and constructive thinking without avoiding differences.
WORKSHOPS BY AND FOR ADULT EDUCATORS
Trainings in Berlin and Tallinn
Crucial part of the two-year project are five-days workshops each in Berlin / DE and Tallinn / EE. The aim of these encounters is to learn from each other by sharing and applying various methods of adult education to strengthen women’s competencies and positive experiences with themselves. Before, during and after these trainings all project partners develop, discuss and reflect people’s stories and an argumentation guideline when it comes to humiliation of women.
WORKSHOP BY AND FOR LEARNERS
Learning virtually and ‘really’
We are happy to include learners from each partner organisation directly in the project activities. During a five-days encounter in Berlin they can experience common actions, talks, and discoveries in a multinational context. Enlarging the horizon goes hand in hand with practising a European spirit. Before and after the training get the learners in touch through virtual activities (online meetings, messenger groups, e-mail, etc.). Let’s see what technical burdens we will have to overcome…
People’s stories – what’s this?
We give women the tools to write / create their own story. But more than this: we invite to present the own “oevres” to others and to listening what other people made. Sharing creates also belonging, stimulates to get out of the box, of lonelyness or old, beaten paths. In this context, adult educators are both trainers and learners.
Communication: how to (re-)act?
We develop suggestions for peaceful problem solving when it comes to humiliation and rage. It may happen in relationships, public ‘real’ spaces, social media, on workplace or jobcenter. The aim is not to perceive the other as an enemy, more to strengthen one’s own capacity to overcome powerlessness and to act.
