LEM - The Learning Museum Network (LLP/Grundtvig - 2010-2013) is a network project which aims to establish a permanent network and webspace for museums and adult educators to participate in a learning society and in a knowledge based Europe.
ECHOE – Education for Heritage, Outdoor Education (LLP/Grundtvig - 2010 - 2012) will explore ways to combine education for/about heritage (especially related to historic and archaeological sites) with outdoor education (including ecology, heritage protection, sports, leisure and open air activities). The project will identify the difficulties faced by the local stakeholders in taking this approach (published in the form of a needs analysis report), it will develop a series of methodological papers providing guidance to both adult educators and cultural operators, and it will explore through a series of workshops what would be a practical way of creating and implementing such blended educational programmes.
INTERMUSE (LLP/Comenius - 2008-2010) started from the idea that museums represent valuable resources for intercultural education but innovative methodologies need to be developed to increase motivation for learning, particularly among upper-secondary school pupils. The project aims to stimulate pupils’ active involvement in intercultural learning and their reflection on sensitive and complex issues regarding cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue, as well as their willingness to learn other languages, by engaging them in the design of computer games in the framework of school-museum cooperation.
VOCH - Volunteers for Cultural Heritage (LLP/Grundtvig - Nov 2007 - Oct 2009) started out by acknowledging the increasing importance of the voluntary sector for preserving cultural heritage and running cultural institutions, such as museums. It explored this phenomenon at European level, identifying different types of voluntary work and the areas of activity in which cultural volunteers are engaged, with the objective of designing training addressed both to volunteers themselves and to the people responsible for volunteer programmes within cultural organisations.
MAP for ID - Museums as Places for Intercultural Dialogue (LLP/Grundtvig - 2007-2009) aimed to develop the potential and practice of museums as places of intercultural dialogue and to promote a more active engagement with the communities they serve.
