Erasmus+ Good Practices Award 2019
The Portuguese ERASMUS+ National Agency awarded the ERASMUS+ 2019 Good Practices Prize for Adult Education in Strategic Partnerships to Oficinas do Convento as coordinator of the LearnBIØN project.
The development of the network created a positive impact on each organization. The adult learners gained experience and skills on building impact zero materials and techniques. At the same time the project had a great positive impact on the local communities, with the implementation of small prototype infrastructures that guaranteed the highlight of low impact building materials (a summer library, an organic food shop, a gather space at a refugee hosting shelter, a community flexible space, an outdoor stage and a artists’ temporary residence).
The network has exceeded its contractual objectives, organizing additional mobilities and meetings than planned, working with real costs to achieve extra objectives. All partners did their best to cooperate and mediate through background and language barriers.
The awards ceremony was held on December 12 at the Soror Mariana Auditory, in Évora.
