Participatie in Diversiteit  - Education as powerful weapon to change the world -Nelson Mandela
PiDParticipatie in Diversiteit, the name of our foundation, means “participation in diversity”
PiD is a co-operation between several agencies and has been established by 5 independent trainer-consultants  who wanted to keep alive the knowledge and expertise about integration and participation of migrants in a time where migrant groups in the Netherlands seems to be marginilised again and hurt by changing policy priorities (the so called bankrupt of the  multicultural society) and budget cuts.

Current activities

L2L4AR addresses learning to learn abilities of adult returners to learning. Adult returners group is characterized by lower secondary education, lack of L2L skills, of flexibility to address the challenges of globalization, of self-confidence and motivation, of guidance systems, of ”second chances” offered by society, possibility of working only in unskilled positions, of attitude in active participation, few possibilities to continue their studies.

PiD is working together with Lithuanian Association of Adult Education, Stephansstift Zentrum für Erwachsenenbildung, Stitelsen Litorina Folkshogskoa I Karlskrona, Eesti Vabaharidusliit, ARACNE associazione di promozione sociale  and EPRALIMA Escola Professional do Alto Lima. Each partner will make a review of the apprehension of L2L competence in the area of adult learning in its country: analysis of strategic documents, review of instruments of evaluation and survey among adult teachers and learners. Both groups will be involved in making surveys and presentations of national reviews in partner meetings. Each partner will organise 2 meetings of interest groups. For the development of L2L-subcompetences each partner will organise 2 laboratories. Totally 205 learners will be included in the activities of the project.
