WHAT IS RADIAL?
The RADIAL project aims to promote social inclusion and environmental awareness by developing two tools that can benefit people from disadvantaged groups in Europe. First, RADIAL will develop the Trainer’s Manual ‘Recycled Art Workshops.’ The manual which will be tested with adult educators during the first phase of the project focuses on recycling, repairing, reusing and co-existence. The manual will equip trainers with the required environmental knowledge and practical advice to conduct the trainings to disadvantaged learners they work with and improve their knowledge on environmental principles.
In the second phase of the project, RADIAL will provide an Entrepreneurship e-course for Disadvantaged Learners through which people from disadvantaged groups will acquire legal knowledge, business skills, and practical instructions and guidelines to become entrepreneurs. Each partner country will conduct two pilot, interactive and practical workshops with learners facing disadvantages (such as socio-economic difficulties, insufficient educational background, unemployment, marginalisation) to enhance their entrepreneurship skills.
The Trainer’s Manual ‘Recycled Art Workshops’ and the Entrepreneurship e-course will be submitted to the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to receive CPD accreditation.
All materials developed will be translated in English, Greek, Bulgarian, Italian, German and Spanish.
Provide special training material and resources to adult education providers (AEP) to use in teaching disadvantaged learners.
Develop tools that promote entrepreneurship among disadvantaged groups through environmental awareness.
Contribute to the social inclusion of disadvantaged adults (with low or no formal education, unemployed, members of marginalised or ethnic communities, third-country nationals (ΤCNs)) by providing recycled art training and guidance.
Support the European Green Deal priority by enhancing knowledge and understanding of sustainable green transition in the European societies.
Create environmentally respectful habits and opportunities for the civic engagement of disadvantaged groups.
Strengthen the competences of AEPs by developing an innovative pedagogical approach on recycling and facilitating their work with disadvantaged learners in multicultural and non-formal learning environments.
Improve the cooperation between civil society organisations, public authorities and the private sector to develop innovative tools for the social inclusion of disadvantaged adults.
Promote the general public’s mobilisation in the integration process of people from disadvantaged groups.
