Join us for our multiplier event, the day before the Educators Gathering weekend.

This event is an introduction to the blended and transformative learning competencies from the BLAST project - a useful tool kit for anyone dedicated to social & ecological transition.

You will get an introduction to blended learning (combining online+in-person methods) and transformative learning. It will cover the many competencies and tools for educators dedicated to social & ecological transition to deliver blended transformative learning well.

There will be plenty of interaction, breakout sessions, tips on different online tools and good practice for online teaching, as well as presenting key outputs from the EU funded BLAST project, which are useful to all educators, facilitators and change-makers - especially now after this challenging year.

The day will also gather information to help design a Training for Trainers on these themes that will be piloted later this year.

We will go through some of the key outputs from this project, which are useful to all educators, facilitators and change-makers - especially now after this challenging year.

BLAST outputs include a competency guide and clear guidance and progression for transformative educators teaching in blended settings.

Permaculture education is transformative education. Join us and find out what you can gain from this project.

Blended Adult learning for the Social-ecological Transition (BLAST) is a project run by the transnational Transformative Education Community of Practice formed by members of ECOLISE and other partners. The project is funded by the Erasmus+ strategic partnerships programme and started in October 2019. It focuses on the enhancement of transformative learning across Europe. The Permaculture Association Britain and IPEN are key partners. 

The project’s activities aim at bringing about massive personal and community-led change over time by supporting people to engage actively in the Socio-ecological transition in response to the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Climate Agreement and related goals.

The BLAST strategy involves:

  • Providing a context for adult educators to improve their competencies in delivering blended transformative learning for civic engagement.
  • Increasing reach and improving access, quality, attractiveness and coordination of educational delivery of transformative adult education initiatives across Europe that are supporting the social-ecological transition.
  • Identifying, pooling, encouraging and spreading related social and educational innovations.
  • Exploiting results of other related EU projects.

The core team consists of 15 people, most of them coming from the formal BLAST partners.
