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.

Immigant women of Barcelona


Last weekend (26-27 Oct) the PIC assisted, for the first time, the Mujeres Pa-Lante (MPL) feminist collective for women from immigrant families. Mujeres Pa-Lante which freely translates into "women go forward" has been fighting for womens' rights within the immigrant communities in  Barcelona for over 7 years and the PIC wanted to help them spread their message and raise funds for the social and educational activities that they offer to those women who them selves or their family left their home country to settle in Spain.

The collaboration was a big success with a large number of both women and men from the immigrant communities of Nou Barris and Barcelona coming up to visit our social centre to learn about the different strategies the MPL women employ to cultivate independence and equality and social integration amongst those with different ethnical and cultural backgrounds. Not only were the educational activities well visited at the end of the day the MPL collective also managed to raise enough funds through the running of our bar and soup kitchen to cover their running costs for the coming months.

If you would like more information about the MPL you can visit their website www.mujerespalante.org or call (+34-93 263 37 65) or email (mujerespalantebcn@yahoo.es)

For those of you who speak Catalan here is what The Mujere Pa-Lante have to say about themselves:

Inscripciones en talleres Mujeres Palante
Les dones decidim creuar oceans, fronteres, explorar el món i les seves moltes possibilitats per múltiples raons. Mujeres Pa'lante som un col · lectiu que va sorgir a partir d'un grup de dones migrades que construïm un espai d'acollida a altres dones des de fa 7 anys. Actualment som voluntàries de diferents procedències que impulsem aquest espai de trobada, suport i informació per a dones migrades i autòctones sobre Orientació psicològica, sociolaboral i legal
Prevenció de violència de gènere, tallers de creixement personal i monitores de salut, Cursos de català, castellà, informàtica i alfabetització Campanyes de convivència i solidaritat en els nostres barris.

Apostem per la solidaritat entre dones, perquè sabem de la importància de les xarxes de suport, entenem que la forma de deconstruir la xenofòbia és coneixent-nos, interactuant, i valorant la diversitat de cultures que convivim a Catalunya. Creiem que les dones hem de compartir eines que ens permetin ser autònomes, empoderar-i trencar els cercles de violència (de gènere i institucional) que vivim. Anem teixint xarxes de suport i afecte, anem filant espais comuns per compartir i créixer juntes.
