DSH Positive Choices

Project “DSH Positive Choices” addresses the issue of Deliberate Self Harm or NSSI (Non Suicidal Self Injury). Self Harm is often labelled as a "personality disorder" and is stigmatised in many communities with some A&E locations deferring treatment because the person has injured themselves deliberately. Stigma leads to social exclusion and isolation, depression and can ultimately end in suicide for the young person at risk.                          

 

                                                                                                                                

Museums Art & Alzheimer's

The objective of the project Museums Art & Alzheimer's is to develop educational activities aimed at improving the welfare of people with Alzheimer's and their caregivers, also contributing to trigger a change in the social perception of the disease. 
Building on the results of experimentation, the project will produce two intellectual outputs:
- A4A online course about how to design and build museum programs for people with dementia with special attention to the caregivers;
- on-line manual dedicated to family and professional caregivers and museum educators, on how to communicate with people with dementia through art.
Multiplier events will be organized in each partner country with the goal of promoting the educational resources created in Art4Alz.

 

 

Competent to do

“The transfer of competences for tutors to achieve business (vocational) and social competences of female prisoners and ex-offenders”. The purpose of the project is to transfer best practices of education from Germany to Slovenia and Lithuania (later indirectly also to Croatia). At first, trainers were prepared in Germany, later the curriculum was created on the development of social and entrepreneurial competences of (ex) prisoners and now it is being tested during the pilot implementation in women prisons in Slovenia and Lithuania.

A Positive Journey

The project addresses stigma that the disadvantaged groups face in their life’s journey – it demonstrates that there is life beyond disadvantage. Partners exchange best practice and created a media and communication learning toolkit to help tackle stigma. The project empowers target groups in having a voice to record their recovery from whatever challenges they are facing or have faced in their life’s journey. Disadvantaged people are given the opportunity to highlight their achievements in overcoming their personal challenges.    

                        

 

INforEX

INforEX will develop a training model which will be performed on the job and not in classrooms through practical, interrelations activities thanks to entrepreneurs (small, sole proprietorship) becoming adult trainers and supported by experienced tutors. The project will also develop a new EU skills certification based on an innovative evaluation model in line with ECVET system requirements, awarded at the end of the training path. To achieve these results INforEX will elaborate a state of the art analysis and a training need assessment among 90 stakeholders in 6 EU countries. 

                                                                                                                                                           

 

Forgotten treasure

“Forgotten treasure” – is a project for youth. The main aim is to encourage young people to become newly interested in their region, find forgotten objects or the ones which have not yet been discovered in their closest environment, i.e. rural areas or other places. During the project implementation participants have to take photos of the chosen objects, find information about them in historical sources, speak with community members, elderly people who could still remember the uniqueness of the forgotten place, its importance.
