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.

Vulnerable groups such as migrants, disabled people, or the underprivileged want to be understood and communicate efficiently, but often, their few verbal communication skills restrain them to do so. This is why the project, funded with the support of the European Commission, proposes alternative tools of communication focused mainly on non-linguistic skills, such as theatre and digital storytelling. The five partners believe that expression through images, gestures, sounds, and with a limited use of words, is a great idea for bringing these people closer to society, and helping them to express themselves.
