Project title: Raising Strong and Resilient Communities

Programme: Erasmus+

Project duration: 2014 - 2016

Lead partner: Svenska Folkolans Vanner

DEX IC´s role: Support of Czech DEX (DEX IC´s sister organisation) in communication with target group and other relevant tasks in project implementation

Consortium of partners will develop a set of educational tools that can be used in adult education (with focus on non-formal adult education) dealing with active citizenship and participation. These tools will be based on existing and the further expansion of developed approaches, theories and methods of storytelling. A teacher/trainer manual, structured courses for adult educators, and a collection of videos/audio recordings will be developed to show the best practices and functions as instruction videos.

The aim is to have trained non formal (adult) educators, volunteers and others involved in community collaboration, communication and well-being through a process that enables them to acquire new skills of listening, understanding and supporting communities in the 'reconstruction' of their past, present and future. They will learn innovative methods to assess communities, their 'hidden' social networks, storytelling spaces, key-storytellers and their true needs, based on mapping and story collecting. They will learn how to plan and craft new stories of collaboration and cooperation for the future and they will be able to assist communities in the communication and maintenance of these stories.
