Representatives of HUKI returned last week from Poland , where they visited partner organizations in Warsaw and Częstochowa and participated in an international project meeting within the Erasmus + KA2 strategic partnership project called Adult Community Media Lab (ACML).

Meetings in Warsaw

Visiting Warsaw with the aim of expanding the network of international partners and strengthening Polish-Croatian relations and cooperation, HUKI representatives held initial meetings with the SGH Warsaw School of Economics , representatives of the Center for Eastern Studies (OSW) and the Warsaw Institute . The initial forms of cooperation were agreed at the meetings, and we are looking forward to future projects that will emerge from these international partnerships.

Meeting in Częstochowa

The meeting, held in Częstochowa, Poland, was attended by representatives of Fundacion Universitat Jaume I-Empresa (Spain), Fundacja Instytut Badan I Innowacji w Edukacji (Poland), Ecoistituto del Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy), Yenisehir Halk Egitimi Merkezi (Turkey), Ova Bilişim Sistemleri Sanayi ve Ticaret Limited kirketi (Turkey), Yenisehir Ilçe MEM (Turkey). The focus of the meeting was on the review of the workshops on digital literacy held so far, the so-called media laboratories, and the sharing of experiences among the partners in order to improve the programs and the ways of their implementation in the future.

About the ACML project

The Adult Community Media Lab project is the result of a strategic partnership of 6 organizations from Turkey, Croatia, Spain, Poland and Italy within ERASMUS + key activities 2 – Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practice. The project supports adults in acquiring and developing high-quality skills and key competencies on social networks in order to more easily cope with the challenges of social transformation and encourage their responsibility towards the correct use of digital technology. The aim of the project is to improve people’s understanding of digital media by educating a select group of adults to become “social literacy mentors”. Also, the project implements innovative learning practices and contributes to the implementation of an effective non-formal learning environment.

Further activities

Through the Adult Community Media Lab, HUKI is organizing another cycle of workshops on digital media literacy for participants in Croatia, and for the dates of the events, continue to follow HUKI official channels because we will publish them soon. After the international meeting in Częstochowa, we are expected to gather partners in Spain, where the ceremonial end of the project will be held as part of the conference.
