The project aims to develop an attractive interactive game-based learning strategy and accompanying resources to support trainers and educators working with disadvantaged young adults, in order to increase their capacity, competency and the resources available to them to promote healthier lifestyles and wider well-being.
To find out which health topics are of particular interest and should thus be considered in the development of the game, all Health Points partners consulted both trainers and young people to ask them about their perceptions and interests. Continue reading

On November 8. and 9. the BADGES consortium met for the first time in Kassel.
BADGES sets out to develop a learning and validation approach for cultural and heritage sites that leads to the award of digital badges to visitors who participate in specific learning activities offered by the sites.
The consortium unites heritage sites and public institutions who wish to make additional offers to their visitors, public relations agencies and learning concept developers specialised in validation of non-formal and informal learning (VINFL).
The EELLSS partners organised their final event on October 5th and 6th, 2017, in Kassel. The two-day event brought together more than 85 people from all the seven partner countries – among them all partners and all those teachers and students that have been involved in the learning projects.
Highlights were the European buffet with treats of each partner country , the common art project and the European fair. Read more in our newsletter.
The LISTEN survey focused on assessing the status storytelling has among adult educators. It asked for interests and experiences with storytelling applied in educational contexts and expored the learning needs of the target groups addressed.
Another topic we asked for was in how far the idea to use radio as medium to give refugees a voice is perceived suitable and attractive to be applied with refugees.
The results show that storytelling is far more wide spread as method of education than one would initially think. Also there is great appreciation and motivation of educators to learn more about the LISTEN approach.
