Communicating Europe Initiative 2020

Posted in

The Communicating Europe Initiative (CEI) is an inclusive adult education programme that seeks to build global citizenship and social cohesion within communities across Ireland.

The project sets out to establish awareness and understanding of the importance of the European Union, the future of Europe, and solidarity in society. Adult learning plays an active role in sustaining communities, and promoting democracy and civic engagement.

This programme aims to strengthen the capacity of adult educators and the adult learning community by constructing new knowledge to address key societal issues that threaten our communities such as the rise of conservative right-wing politics, false information, racism, and anti-vaccine rhetoric.

The project will produce a range of informative resources including videos, social media content, train the trainer webinars and a publication sharing best practice.
