Integration through Social and Digital Learning (ISDL) is a transnational project supported by the European Commission under the current Erasmus+ programme.
The project focuses on the situation of migrant population and unemployed in different countries, and grows out of the belief that successful social inclusion and integration is dependant on the availability of intensive adult learning pathways promoting specifically cultural sensitivity and digital literacy.
The aim of this project is to seek out examples of good practices from NGOs, organisations and initiatives, that have developed innovative, creative and well-working methods and schemes within adult-education for integration.
The end goal is to put together a collection of in-depth descriptions of the best examples found through our research, to be made available as an Open Educational Resource.
ISDL is aimed at anyone working within adult education. Through this project we are hoping to be able to offer new inspiration, ideas and impulses for the educational activities they are offering.
Migration is considered the most important issue of the century.
Every year millions of people all around the world are forced to abandon their homes because of different displacement reasons such as: poverty, war, persecution social and political exclusion or searching for a better life.

As our societies are becoming more various because of migration tendencies, more people started to live in multicultural societies. The increasing number of refugees’ population call the need of some issues such as, social integration, tolerance, non-discrimination, solidarity, public health etc.

Also the unemployed that are not migrant are showing the same problems in the full integration and on the needs to increase the skills both social and digital for a better employability.

The partnership will bring together partners coming from several countries and their stakeholders, with the synergic power to reach a very large and diverse audience, thanks also to an intensive dissemination campaign.
