SLIC LogoBetween 2012 - 2014 ESB was part of a European project called SLIC (Sharing Learning In Communities)

Sharing Learning in Communities was a partnership project founded by the European Union under the ‘Lifelong Learning Programme’. It started in summer 2012 and finished in summer 2014. The partnership consisted of 9 partners, enterprises, NGO’s as well as public institutions, from different EU-countries. The project provided opportunities for community educators to share new, innovative and practical ideas and methods within a changing society. The focus was: engaging people from disadvantaged communities, vulnerable social groups, and different ages to use learning for active citizenship. All countries of the EU are currently experiencing economic, political and social crises, but despite these national differences there are some solutions which have common themes. Therefore the partnership worked together to share knowledge and experiences in dealing with social inequality, the challenge of an aging population and the need to increase active citizenship. To disseminate the project’s outcomes more widely the partners created a series of themed newsletters.
