HURISTO Project meeting in Piedrabuena, Spain

The HURISTO (Human Rights Storytelling) project meeting took place in Piedrabuena, Spain,  on 3-4 September 2018 when project partners from Maks (Belgium), ALL DIGITAL (Belgium) and Cooperativa Terremondo (Italy) came to Ciudad Real, 30 km from Piedrabuena. Project partners received a warm welcome from CEPA Montes Norte who made them feel really at home!

On the first day, before starting with the work session in Piedrabuena, project partners met the town deputy mayor to whom they presented the HURISTO project. It was very fulfilling to see the project reaching such an institution as the Town Council!

During the project meeting partners talked about the training with low-skilled adults and shared their experiences as well as planned the next activities.

What’s coming up?

  • The last webinar is foreseen for the end of the month and it will be essentially an evaluation webinar where trainers can talk about what went right or wrong during the training and share tips. This will be really useful for those teachers or trainers who would like to implement the HURISTO methodology in the future;
  • A local peer-to-peer event, during which adult learners present the digital stories produced to peers, has already been organised in Belgium and Spain. In this way, another 150 adult learners will be reached. A peer-to-peer event will be organised in Italy as well;
  • The final meeting and conference will take place in Brussels on 18-19 October 2018 together with the ALL DIGITAL Summit. The objectives of the event will be to disseminate the projects outputs and results to the stakeholders (adult education organisations, teacher trainings, human rights organisations, local policy makers) and it will be a way for them to explore the use of digital storytelling as an educational tool and to explain how digital storytelling can help adult learners to express their own ideas about human rights. Besides panel and group discussions, there will also be a very practical workshop How to introduce human rights issues and enhance digital skills of low-skilled adults, using digital storytelling

 

The HURISTO project is coming to an end, and we are all excited to see the results of this challenging but rewarding year!
