Adult Education as a Means to Active Participatory Citizenship (EduMAP)
EduMAP is a Horizon2020 research project focusing on the educational needs of young people with low levels of basic and functional literacy, with deficient language and cultural skills (foreign newcomers, ethnic minorities), those who have dropped out of school and those not in education or training due to disability.
The fundamental aim is to help European, national and local policymakers, educational authorities and educators to tailor adult education policies and practices to meet the needs of young adults in a vulnerable position.
The main research question is: What policies and practices are needed in the field of adult education to include young adults at risk of social exclusion in active participatory citizenship in Europe?
This project is funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme
