Learning areas

Based on the results of the desk research and good practice analysis, up to 10 learning areas will be developed and realised in the partner countries. In five countries (Belgium, Croatia, Germany, Latvia and Netherlands) about ten sustainable learning areas will be realised. In these learning areas the the oldest old, older people with reduced mobility or who are living in retirement houses, women and migrants in cooperation with youngsters will participate as the four focused target groups of the learning areas aiming increase of social inclusion and employment. During the learning process successful and sustainable good working relationships with cultural organisations and protagonists (museums, libraries, theatres etc.) in the field of later life learning will be established in order to develop innovative models in creative settings. Besides this in co-operation with the local community evidence-based knowledge about successful regional or community orientated networking will be used in order to discover all potentially resources in the quarters and the neighbourhoods in order to realise the learning areas for and with older people (including migrants and women) and youngsters in time for many learners and stakeholders.




The GUTS project contributes to one of the most important goals of the Erasmus Plus program and the Europe2020 strategy:  the decrease of poverty and social exclusion as well as increase of unemployment.













The results of the project will be delivered in all EU Member States in order to professionalise trainers and policy makers in developing and facilitating own sustainable learning areas
