For the #ErasmusDays2018, the EPALE teams wished to raise awareness about the European Union commitment in adult lifelong learning. They created a digital exhibition with 22 different projects, demonstrating the variety of practices across Europe.

By implementing a framework based in co-production and its related methodologies, ENABLE along with Erasmus + seeks to develop an inclusive training/learning platform to better equip diverse teams with skills to better co-design, co-deliver and co-evaluate services for people with intellectual disabilities in conjunction with user services, families, professionals working for disability challenges as well as local community representatives.

ENABLE seeks to implement an innovative methodology to assist target groups to build relationships between professional services and other stakeholders. Bringing innovation to social services, this extends too to equity, diversity and challenges facing inclusion about training environments.

ENABLE promotes inclusive learning and training materials for users, families and professionals as outlined in the rights enshrined in the UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The co-production approach abandons the traditional top-down model and it focuses on defining and meeting the needs of passive recipients to provide opportunities for personal development of people who are recognised in terms of their personal attributes, knowledge and experience and are treated as assets and equal partners.
