During the two-year long Grundtvig Partnership „Enough for Everyone Forever“ four European organizations (based in Spain, France, Germany and Poland) work together to improve educational methods for sustainable education.

All four partners use creative methods to work with adults on political and ecological topics, but each one is expert on a specific approach such as visual arts, theatre or music.

Each organization hosts one meeting, inviting the partners to get to know its context of educational work. During those meetings, we share our skills and experiences both in theoretical and practical ways. Combining our creative approaches, we develop an interdisciplinary action that is carried out in the public space and sensibilizing the audience about sustainability.

What we have learned during the process is then transformed by each partner into an innovative pedagogical concept adapted to the organizations context and target group. After putting the concept into practice individually, we meet for the last time in order to reflect on the potential of the new tools that we have developed and to plan our future transnational projects, where we are going to bring together adults from different cultural backgrounds and use our newly acquired educational skills to work together on a sustainable future.

Collserola Interaction Point

What is the PIC?

The Collserola Interaction Point (PIC) is a social learning centre located near the immigrant rich, working class district of Nou Barris in the Collserola national park which surrounds Barcelona. Nou Barris has a rich history of social and cultural engagement through a network of self-organized, municipal education and social centres in which the PIC plays an active part. Participants in the open PIC curriculum vary from twenty to sixty years of age and come from the nearby neighbourhoods and the cities social movements. Courses are further well attended by those interested in agroecology, permaculture, and urban agriculture. This mix is part of the PIC vocation to educate, promote and disseminate values, skills and knowledge. The PIC, has over 10 years of experience in the field of adult education and shares its knowledge through traditional and innovative forms of peer-to-peer and student-teacher interaction that follow three lines of programming: informative, practical and embodied. Each, is a separate yet complementary way to integrate knowledge, whose goal is to provide tools for personal and collective autonomy. Education is facilitated through different strategies such as: Regular Weekend activities (e.g. lectures, conferences, jams, labs, workshops, performances); Collaborative Learning Groups (small ongoing groups working with or without designated 'teachers' researching a single topic during an extended period of time); weekly organic agriculture exchanges of labour, food and knowledge; weekly guided tours of the project for the general public, The Rurban Office (publicly accessible documentation space with a library, relevant catalogues, a bank of maps, a ecological seed bank, internet access and bulletin boards). As a sustainable, consensus built project, the PIC shares its knowledge in democratic alternatives, non-violent conflict resolution and permaculture. It, further, supervises the sustainability, eco-friendliness, and consensual organization of the learning partnership to ensure It's continued viability after this initial funding has ended.
