CB4LLP Action Plan

Useful ideas

The project will integrate the four core components of support which are common to communities across Europe:

a) Promoting and sustaining community activity – Numerous partnership and network initiatives in recent years have generated activities but these have been occasional, interest-driven and short-lived. Locate is developing locally driven long term planning and implementation of media and learning.

b) Empowering adults – so even those in vulnerable social groups and from different cultures can develop skills and share expertise.

c) Sustaining quality learning – in times of increased pressure on budgets and support lifelong learning in many countries in Europe has either declined or remained static. Local learning and support needs to become embedded in everyday community life.

d) Increasing participation in the community – by using every available element of today’s knowledge and techno-savvy society to generate interest, disseminate good news and promote activity in even socially disadvantaged communities.
