The EAEA announced the winners for the 2016 EAEA Grundtvig Awards.
This year the European Association for the Education of Adults focused on the topic of adult education and refugees and awarded three projects with the EAEA Grundtvig Award for excellence in adult education.
The winner of the best international project is St. Andrew’s Refugee Services (StARS). The project offers education, psychological and legal services to adult and children refugees.
The winner of the best European project, TLC Pack from VHS Cham in Germany. The project aims to develop job-specific language resources to help (potentially) employed migrants in the care giving sector. TLC Pack tackles an existing problem: there is an increasing number of migrant caregivers across Europe who lack the necessary language and intercultural competences.
The winner of the best national project is From Destruction to Creation. Ways of Reconciliation in the Ukrainian Society in Ukraine. The project aimed to promote a culture of open dialogue and break stereotypes among certain target groups from armed conflict territories such as Crimea, Donbass, Luhansk.
