  • To set up a consortium which will take the lead in networking to apply the results and outcomes of past and current Grundtvig Programme actions in the field of community-based training and learning in order to draw maximum benefit from the exchange of good practice and implications for European policy
  • To develop the European dimension of the consortium, providing feedback on the application of the core principles of Community Development to training and learning systems at a national level within the context of the Lifelong Learning Programme and making connections with other member states
  • To set up an interactive network combining Relay visits, electronic networking and increased mobility for exchange of learning and good practice linking the national and European level, with a focus on links with Grundtvig actions
  • To animate the interactive network by establishing multipliers who are in touch with local level trainers engaged in training and learning for Community Development
  • To increase networking from practice to policy specifically in relationship to the draft European guidelines for training and learning for community development developed in Budapest in 2006
  • To extrapolate shared lessons on data collection and analysis for core indicators: Civic skills and Professional Development from exchanges in line with the Open Method of Co-ordination
