European Project “Building Bridges for Europe” – Ideas and inspiration for educators and committed Europeans

Within the Erasmus+-partnership “Building bridges for Europe” (BBE) nine project partners of six European countries (Germany, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Italy) created an online toolbox containing proved and tested methods and projects, which support European awareness, and critical thinking and help reducing prejudices about others.  

The project partners have worked very hard for two years to analyse and provide “best practice projects”. The result can now be seen online: The toolbox contains 27 projects and methods that are easy to call up and to be applied. The accumulated knowledge is available free, to all people who are interested to make use of the applied and described methods. It inspires its users to promote new methods in further education, especially for older adults, women, low-educated people, people from rural areas, migrants, etc. focusing on fostering European awareness.

During the project duration, the partners strengthened their working relations, exchanged experience and expertise in the provision of educational offers in their countries. The project partnersagreed upon continuing the European cooperation in the field of socially engaged education for the Third age and continue to develop their intergenerational collaboration. The Project Coordinator was ILEU e.V, Ulm, Germany and partners ZAWIW, Ulm University Germany, University of Ruse Angel Kanchev, Bulgaria, LSFTB – The Writers` League Timisoara Banat Branch, Romania, Federation of the Universities of the Third Age in Italy (FEDERUNI), Public Open University Zagreb, Croatia, Slovenian Third Age University, Agora-Platform, Sofia, University Dunarea de Jos from Galati, Romania.
