General presentation: Considering the importance of Adult Education and Life Long Learning as an instrument to foster the participation of people in cultural, social, economic and sustainable development, and in poverty reduction, the above contracting parties agree to cooperate in the field of adult and non-formal education. The initiative is part of an transnational project, co-funded by the EU, ERASMUS + to promote and investigate Bildung practices in the world, from different perspectives – Building Inclusive Lifelong Learning Systems by Developing a European Understanding of Bildung for the Next Generations – https://europeanbildung.net/erasmus-bildung-project/. Bildung is a complex and elusive phenomenon and the concept has deep roots in European thinking and education. There are many definitions of Bildung out there; the European Bildung Network defines it like this: Bildung is the combination of the education and knowledge necessary to thrive in your society, and the moral and emotional maturity to both be a team player and have personal autonomy. Bildung is also knowing your roots and being able to imagine the future – https://europeanbildung.net/global-bildung-website/.
