The Namoi LtD from Russia aimes to protect human rights, defense of the legal interests of social excluded groups that be connected to a person’s social class, race, skin color, religious affiliation, ethnic origin. Such exclusionary forms of discrimination may also apply to people with a disability, minorities, LGBTQ+ people, drug users,institutional care leavers, the elderly and young people. We also assist in solution of environmental, social and economic issues, and the issues of cultural development and education. Novgorod the Great, or Novgorod Veliky, or just Novgorod (meaning “newtown”), is one of the oldest and most important historic cities in Russia,with more than 1000 years of history. The city serves as the administrative center of Novgorod Oblast. The city lies along the Volkhov River just downstream from its outflow from Lake Ilmen and is situated on the M10 federal highway connecting Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn’t just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.
Detailed information on these opportunities, including eligibility criteria, is available in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide. An indicative funding guide for some centralised opportunities is also available.
Erasmus+ has opportunities for people of all ages, helping them develop and share knowledge and experience at institutions and organisations in different countries.
Erasmus+ has opportunities for a wide range of organisations, including universities, education and training providers, think-tanks, research organisations, and private businesses.
ABOUT OUR PROJECTS
Rise and Rise Strong Female -development, inclusion and improvement the quality of life of women
Start Day: 01 September 2018 End Day: 31 August 2020 Project Reference: 2018-1-UK01-KA204-047959
Key Action KA2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices Action Type KA204: Strategic Partnerships for adult education
Regarding an international study about Adult competencies managed by Androulla Vassiliou, European commissioner and General Secretary of OCDE, the results of a Survey conducted in 33 countries as part of the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) showed that 1 of 5 adults in Europe has low competences in reading, writing and calculating.
Furthermore as stated in the Strategic Framework – Education and Training 2020, the main objectives for the upcoming years will be to promote equity, social cohesion, and active citizenship and to improve the quality and efficiency of education and training, especially in terms of basic competencies.
In regard of these findings our project aims to develop basic and civic competencies by an intergenerational exchange between adult trainer (expert on autobiographical method) and young women in NEET and/or with migration background. We consider that each group of women has certain competencies which can be shared with other women. On the one hand, young unemployed women are not fully aware of their fundamental rights and their non-formal competencies and there is oftentimes a lack of autonomy among these women. However these women have grown up with information technologies and therefore have an easy access and related skills to ICT services. On the other hand, our female trainers have not the necessary competencies with the everyday use of ICT but they can share their life experiences as active citizens and transfer some of their non-formal though effective pedagogic tools.
In order to close this gap, we want to cooperate on a European level with these trainers in adult education and their learners to exchange good practices from each other. This intergenerational learning setting will help young unemployed women to valorize their competences, develop basic skills and knowledge about active citizenship and rights with the support of adult women and the autobiographical methods that they will apply. In return the young women will help adult women to get better access to modern technologies.
Our main objectives will be:
– Valorise civic competences of young migrant women in a NEET situation
– Increase awareness of fundamental rights, social prevention means and active citizenship among young women
– Exchange of best practices between trainers in non-formal education for adults (autobiographical method, valorisation of basic competencies)
– Reduce the intergenerational gap in ICT competencies
– Increase awareness of the importance of digital inclusion
The objectives of our project are:
– gather data, references and information on policy and institutional environment, projects, programs and research on needs of the target group and previous activities and projects prepared in the field,
– identify needs and barriers to set up successful mentoring programs that will support and lead our target groups,
– focus on the need to provide training and support for the target group who are disadvantaged young and adult women,
– implement a friendly environment for women to become involved in educational activities and work life,
– create a holistic approach that consist of training, support through mentoring and networking,
– provide supportive network, give them means to reach out to others by social networking and a dedicated Facebook group,
– create steering groups to focus on the problems of the target groups and involve stakeholders in providing solutions.
Our primary target groups of this project are:
- European young and adult unemployed women (NEETs and migrants);
- European adult trainers in non-formal education;
- Women involved in local NGOs.
As seen in the above mentioned international studies, the problem of low basic and civic competencies among adults is not just a national but certainly European problem. For us it is an evidence to treat this problem therefore even so on a European level. The idea is to exchange the best practices in non-formal education and to use the best and improved methods on a national level in each involved partner country.

2 INTERGENERATIONAL MEETING AND ICT COURSES
We discussed on different topics like freedom of Speech and Problems of its Implementation, Meeting with local NGOs protecting civil and women’s rights, study of fundamental rights, local organizations or contact persons and opportunities for social prevention of young women in society. This was made for students, for migrants, women with special needs, with students of the Law Faculty of Novgorod State University named after Yaroslav the Wise on May 8, 2019 from 11:00 to 12.45 in the auditorium 409. We had an invited specialist Galina Yartova famous journalist and local NGOs members. She had explained her experience as being a NEET women after she gaved a lecture about autobiography a being an unique and fascinating approachas as well how women define themselves and understand their own experiences. She made us understand how intergenerational exchanges within migration occur and acquire meaning in the life-course of both young people, their parents and their grandparents.
3 INTERGENERATIONAL MEETING AND ICT COURSES
At the sessions we discussed a lot about non-discrimination principles and equal rights as well ways to empower women. We did analysed EU policy developments in the field of intergenerational learning and ICT for an ageing society and identify learning possibilities in formal, non-formal and informal settings. The need to enhance learning opportunities for older people relates to the overall development of the role of lifelong learning and ICT in the digital society. Firstly, we did try to analyse and understand if the policies and consequents practises are enough to promote new possibilities for the new challenges that demographic transformation represents in the world. Secondly, we aim to examine if the intergenerational learning enables best opportunities for the involvement the older in learning ICT. Then we discuss how ICT and intergenerational learning are related, and can support lifelong learning in older ages. Finally, we try to sum up some suggestions to improve ICT and intergenerational learning in order to enable lifelong learning in an ageing society
The main purpose of ACTE is to exchange good practice methods regarding EDUCATION OF ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP. The resulting knowledge will be shared with stakeholders in all partner countries, through the production of project results. Skills in field of citizenship are considered by the EU (see the recommendation of 22 May 2018) one of the 8 key competences for lifelong learning, which, like the others, contributes to employability, personal fulfillment, health, to participation in public life and social
inclusion. The recommendation defines citizenship skills as the ability to act as responsible citizens and to participate fully in civic and social life, based on an understanding of social, economic, legal and political structures and concepts as well as global evolution and sustainability. Hence the “intersectivity” of the main theme of the ACTE project and the possibility that the results of the project can be reused in different educational contexts (formal and non-formal), in different cultural and socio-political scenarios, in different
levels of education and training.

CITIZENS OF PUBLIC LIFE IN DIGITAL LEARNING ERASMUS+ project KA2 Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices approved by UK NA
Various studies have found that learning is critical for migrant inclusion subsequently, the importance of providing education for migrants and refugees has been recognised by governments and national and international organisations. This vision goes beyond access to formal education, and recognition of prior learning, and also recognises the importance of less formal types of education. Our project aims to develop innovative practices in the use of ICT in the effective teaching of Literacy to migrant adults (refugees, newly arrived migrants, asylum seekers, young adult migrants and migrant women), by testing and implementing innovative practices, including the creative use of ICT for language learning in the field of formal and non-formal adult education EMERGING NEEDS Migrants and NEET have to increase the knowledge and skills about: (a) enhanced culturаl sеnsitivity in order to be more integrated in the society (b) active citizenship in order to feel part of a larger and new context where to live in (c) digital literacy to increase the employability and also extend the adult education thanks to ICT tools
SPECIAL PARENTS-SPECIAL KIDS-EQUAL TREATMENT
The project is intended as a source of information and reference for parents who have a child with special needs. The intended and most important message of the stakeholders for the parents of children with special needs is making them feel that ‘THEY ARE NOT ALONE!’ The main aim of “SPECIAL PARENTS-SPECIAL KIDS-EQUAL TREATMENT ” project is, the promotion of psycho-social adjustment and to raise the quality of life of the families with children who are at risk of development or disabled by guiding, counseling and training services through ensuring active participation in the education of their children. We think that children benefit most from their education when parents and professionals work together as partners.
The consortium of the project consists of 6 different countries: Cyprus, Estonia, Italy, Russia, the United Kingdom and Romania. Our target group is the parents of children with special needs. Each country will work with at least 40 parents (total 240) during the project lifetime. 60 (out of) participants will be the people with fewer opportunities.
