The Bildung project is a Key Action 2 project of the Erasmus + programme, which makes it possible for organisations from different participating countries to work together, to develop, share and transfer best practices and innovative approaches in the fields of education, training and youth.

BILDUNG stands for “Building Inclusive Lifelong learning systems by Developing a European Understanding of Bildung for the Next Generations”. The project will explore “Bildung” as a key approach to adult learning and education that responds to current political, social and economic challenges such as climate change, changes in democratic participation, as well as low levels of digital and basic skills among the European population. The Bildung project aims to empower people with the personal, interpersonal and civic skills that they need to become active citizens.

During this project a background paper on “Bildung” will be developed, which will be disseminated among policymakers at all levels of adult education policies, adult education associations, organisations and providers. A series of thematic modules will be produced, providing best practice and practical guidelines for adult education organisations on the four themes; “Bildung and democracy”, “Bildung and digitisation”, “Bildung and sustainability” and “Bildung and basic education”.

AONTAS’ role in this project includes developing a series of background papers and webinars on Bildung and digitalisation, as well as delivering a workshop with practitioners on how to use the developed approaches outlined in research papers.
