EAEA: Adult Education Centres Host Citizens’ Discussions
EAEA GRUNDTVIG AWARD 2018. “100 steps towards Finnish future” project wanted to implant a new method of civic discussions to the adult education culture in Finland. Anne Tastula shares how this was done.
“The purpose was to implant a new method of civic discussions to the adult education culture. To bring ordinary people from all backgrounds and ages together in an informal setting to discuss the wellbeing of contemporary and future Finns. The discussions were arranged in cooperation with local adult education centres which host the events. This was done to teach the method to the personnel to be used later on in their work. Open access discussions were also a way to introduce the adult education centres and their work to a new customer base.”
