E-Design – European Digital Education for Social Inclusion and Global Neighbourhood

KA3 project:

The purpose of the project “E-DESIGN – European Digital Education for Social Inclusion and Global Neighbourhood” is to contribute to promoting social inclusion and combating social inequalities among disadvantaged groups, especially migrants and refugees, through strengthening their digital competences in order to enhance their labour market opportunities and social participation according to the objectives of the European Pillar of Social Rights and ET 2020.

The aim is to enhance sustainable structures of volunteer work in communities and schools to improve societal structures for reaching out to underprivileged groups. By creating a free and easily accessible offer of digital education, the target groups get interested in participating and thereby also get in contact with other people from their community to further promote social inclusion.

The universal challenge the EU points out, which we address in our project is to enable future employees as soon as possible to acquire the skills demanded by a fast changing labour market 4.0. In this way, employment and social participation can be realised in an increasingly digitalised world. For this reason, it is crucial to make efforts to prevent digitally excluded groups from losing touch within this development.

Through the establishment of decentralised structures of digital education via the aspired ICT Training Hotspots in social areas, schools and other suitable places like public libraries of the communities in the regions of project partner organisations, E-DESIGN aims at improving access to ICT training and strengthening digital competences of disadvantaged groups.

Moreover, the aim is to enhance sustainable structures of volunteer work in communities and schools to improve societal structures for reaching out to underprivileged groups. By creating a free and easily accessible offer of digital education, the target groups get interested in participating and thereby also get in contact with other people from their community to further promote social inclusion.
