ARTicipate is an international Erasmus + project with the general aim to promote innovative and engaging methodologies for adult learners at risk of exclusion, and to improve the competences of educators and other adult education staff in the field of participatory arts tools: digital storytelling, participatory photography, participatory podcasting and participatory theatre. Our intention is to pilot these methods with adult learners at risk of exclusion in each partner country.
The core activities include comprehensive training events in each chosen participatory method. Adult educators working in various sectors within adult education will acquire new skills in these methods. We will be piloting each method with learners at risk of exclusion by organizing local workshops.
Our intention is to develop four comprehensive and user-friendly participatory workbooks for adult educators working with learners at risk of exclusion. The workbooks will be published online and they will include clear and concise presentation of the methodologies and exercises. We will also create an Inspirational Pool, which is an online platform where educators and practitioners can share and access best practices for engaging adult learners at risk of exclusion.

Climate cookbook

Support of VET in gastronomic sector towards CO2 neutral kitchen – Climate Cookbook

Program: Erasmus+ 2022-2-HR01-KA210-VET-000094467

Project duration:  1.01.2023 – 1.01.2025

Funding: Erasmus+ (KA210-VET) Small-Scale Partnership in Vocational Education and Training

Project partners:

Institute for Development and International Relations (IRMO), Croatia – Project coordinator

Rogaška Slatina People’s University (LURS), Slovenia – Project partner

Project Leader: Sanja Tišma, PhD

The Climate Cookbook project will research the level of knowledge in the gastronomy sector in Croatia and Slovenia related to the impact of the sector’s operations on climate change. On the basis of the collected research results, an educational programme on climate change will be created following the activities in the gastro sector to reduce CO2 emissions. Also, a methodology will be developed and CO2 emissions calculated for about twenty traditional dishes in Croatia and Slovenia, and recipes with significant CO2 emissions during their production will be combined into a Climate Cookbook. Information about climate change through the activities of the gastro sector as well as the Climate Cookbook will be presented to the general public, thus ensuring the popularization of scientific research at IRMO.

With the project, we improve the participation of people with physical and/or mental disabilities in sports activities in nature, their perception of themselves and nature, care for physical and mental health, and their attitude to nature.

The results we want to achieve are inclusive and sustainable:

improving social inclusion through movement in a natural environment (cycling on adapted bikes, walking activities, therapeutic riding)
to improve the relationship with nature and thereby reduce pollution
preventing the stigma that “people with disabilities do not move”
promoting equality and non-discrimination
activation of disabled people in outdoor activities and protection of nature
promoting sustainable mobility
promotion of physical and mental health of persons with disabilities and staff
improving the well-being of people with disabilities and staff
reduction of stress and hardships of persons and staff
new knowledge for the disabled and staff
improving the competences of staff and partner organizations
exchange of experience and good practices, upgrade of the work of partners and greater training of smaller partners of newcomers (UVID and COOKT) for international cooperation and development
introduction of new skills into the regular operation of UVID, COOKT and LURS (in the program of mandatory basic and advanced training for personal assistants, in the training of volunteers, in work with students with disabilities)
introducing new outdoor activities for people with disabilities (sensory park and cycling with disabled adapted bikes)

Storytelling 55 + workshops in Slovenia

In May 2023 Ljudska univerza Rogaška Slatina organized several workshops for seniors in the frame of the Storytelling project. Senior participants were testing storytelling cards and other outputs developed in the project and enjoyed the storytelling activities a lot. 


On May 24th 2023 Ljudska univerza held a multiplier event in the frame of Storytelling 55 + project in Rogaška Slatina, Slovenia. The participants learned more about the project, its outputs and were at the same time able to test storytelling cards. The event gathered more than 50 experts, including adult education providers, representatives of universities for third age, and other interested parties.

In the framework of the I.WE.SOCIETY project, the consortium is working on the development of 6 online training courses. AIFED is working on the development of content focused on people with disabilities.

We leave you a small insight after the work done so far.

There are different opinions about people with disablities ad the definition of disablity.

The people have some confusions when they talk about it and the problem is not only about the name and the definition but is conceptual. There was a need to define a new conceptual diagram that would alow a real coherence between people’s opnions the image we have of them and our attitudes towards them.

We feel it is vital to start by making visible the difference between disability, impairment and handicap. The three concepts are closely related, when illess or impairment occurs, it affects an individual’s health status and autonomy.

For many years, the role of the disabled person was seen as beeing unable to be independent, providing them protection, charity ad assitance. This implied an increased dependence of the disabled person on the environment. It has been shown that it is largely the environmet that determines the effect of impairment or dissability which affects not only the person but the environment itself. It must be accepted that it is a social responsability to identify and remove barriers to facilitate full participation, not only by removing attitudinal and physical barriers,but also by developing ad engaging in programmes that enable the reintegration of persons with disabilities into society. The inclusion of persons with disabilities in daily activities implies practices ad polices aimed at identifying and removing barriers, such as physical, communication and attitudinal barriers, that hinder the ability of individuals to participate fully in society,as do persons without disabilities.

We have completed the online platform with e-learning courses to help adult educators and people from the following groups, in these complicated Post-Covid times.

Each target group of the project has their own needs where the created course can help them deal with the current situation:

  • young parents may need advice how to deal with different problems in the society when a child is born
  • re-immigrating people have to adjust to the new situation in the native country
  • recently retired people have to be helped feel still active and needed in the society
  • people with different disabilities will find online course easily accessible
  • temporary unemployed people affected by Covid-19 pandemics will benefit from the course as it will include practical advice for finding a new job
  • small business owners will get practical help on how to decrease the existing problems.
