“Culture goes Emotional” was a training course, targeted to adult education staff. It lasted 8 days and it was carried out in Cantabria (Spain). It aimed to bring, three trainers interested in widening their emotional management perspective and different experts in the topic into contact. The design of this course arose to address the European plan of development and the needs of both participating organisations (Permacultura Cantabria from Spain and CGE Erfurt e.V. from Germany). During this course, we worked to know and identify the emotions and to acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes to help education staff to work on emotional issues. It also allowed us to share and improve our perspective on the different Key Actions, and to trigger the development of future collaborative projects under the Erasmus Plus Programme.

To reach the aims of the project, we designed one activity:

Training Course in Cantabria
Training Course held from the 17th till 23rd of November in Cantabria, Spain.

The four main goals, in which the activity programme is based, are:

  • promoting a better understanding of emotions and offering the proper knowledge and tools for their management;
  • exchanging good practices about the emotional management for education staff;
  • developing programmes and ideas, so as to collaborate in the future, in possible KA1, KA2 and KA3 actions;
  • getting to know new ICTs (so as to facilitate virtual collaborations), as well as the keys for a financial viability which can help us to develop self-sustainable projects.

Number of participants: 3

Profile of participants: Young active people from Germany and Spain aged 18 to 30.

Methodology

The methodology of the course will be participative, including theoretical and practical aspects about emotions.

Impact

Regarding the impact of the project, we expect that participants will improve their capacity to identify feelings and emotions, and their ability to manage them, and help others to do so, when working with adult learners. That will lead to an easier communication, to a better psychosocial well-being, and will make them multipliers of that knowledge. The emotional management is a special effective tool in preventing social exclusion of disadvantaged adult´s groups. But it is also a transversal tool, that can be applied in any kind of project and can benefit to all the collectives which use it (children, young people, etc), to a regional, national and international levels.

In a long-term perspective, this project will have also a positive impact in both organisations, as we will be able to include the project results as part of our pedagogical framework and practice. In addition, we will be able to expand our European network, and the innovation and quality of our projects. By means of the final evaluation and report, the European Commision and the National Agencies will increase the available information, in such an innovative field as the emotional education, in order to realise how necessary is to keep on promoting this kind of projects.
