ALCE, new Grundtvig Multilateral Project

ALCE – Appetite for Learning Comes with Eating

16 January 2013 - European Cooperation, News -

ALCE (Appetite for Learning Comes with Eating) is a two years Grundtvig Multilateral project under the LifeLong Learning Programme. It involves five partners: CESIE (Italy), MEH- Merseyside Expanding Horizons (England), VM-Verein Multikulturell (Austria), Elan Interculturell (France) and SIC- Senior Initiative Center (Lithuania).

The target groups ALCE fouses on, are:

native senior women over 60 years old
and young migrant women between 18 and 40 years old
ALCE main objectives are:

breaking social isolation of certain target groups suffering of multiple discrimination
developing the intercultural and intergenerational dialogue between the two target groups.
encouraging adult learning through the recognition and validation of the competences (literacy, civic, entrepreneurial) acquired by the target groups.

The learning phase will be based on exchange of food traditions and natural curative methods, cultural events, learning mobilities, creation of Book gathering traditional recipes and remedies and creation of pedagogical manual on innovative approaches to stimulating inter-generational and intercultural learning.

The 17th to 19th of January was the Kick-off meeting which was held in Palermo to give a concrete start to the project. The partners' coordinators met to start planning together the next steps for the implementation of the activities. At the same time training was held by the trainers from each organisation. They were directly involved in the exchange phase of food traditions and curative methods with the senior native and migrant young women.
