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.

Free skills training in bio-construction

The Interaction point of Collserola (PIC), together with Permacultura Barcelona organized two week-long training workshops on bio-construcción techniques and sustainable rehabilitation. The objective of which were to integrate ecological thinking into the development of the social movement in Barcelona as a tool for cultural sustainability and to provide sustainable skills training to those without full-time employment.
These workshops took place during the summer of 2012 and 2013 and attracted more than thirty participants. The groups consisted mostly of women (60%) and was focussed especially on those individuals who were living or had lived in a precarious economic or social situation.
The workshops were mostly practical in nature and were offered free of charge to anyone who wanted to join. Furthermore participants who were willing to join for the full length of the training were given free room and board for the duration of the course.
Here is a link to the first workshop held in September 2012 in Can Masdeu. During those 8 days wood working experts shared their knowledge and skills to help build a “Timber Frame". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNK7bMYD6HY
The second phase of the training was carried out a year later in October 2013. Here experts in bio-construcción provided the participants with theoretical and practical guidance in the construction of a passive house on top of the timber frame using recycled wood and adobe.
