PROJECT: “REINVENTING THE FUTURE”
Project start date: 01-09-2018
End date: 31-08-2020
This strategic partnership has been created to achieve the objective of equipping adult trainers and adults with new knowledge and tools for them to start developing innovative and sustainable projects in a collaborative way; this will also foment entrepreneurship and social inclusion among local citizens.
1.To design a new and innovative Dragon Dreaming Methodology: This will be done by sharing the best practices.
2.To create didactic materials in which adult learners and adult people can acquire the Dragon Dreaming Methodology in an easy way. Intellectual outputs: interactive book+ film (15 short videos)
3.To transfer to European countries the Dragon Dreaming Methodology through an effective dissemination campaign
What causes a new project to fail are insufficient confidence level and inadequate or non-existent tools and methodologies. Dragon Dreaming methodology clearly provides solutions for the organisations to solve this problem.
Regarding participants, after their participation, they will be more empowered and motivated since:
-they will gain the ability of creating and managing sustainable projects putting into practice new Dragon Dreaming tools and skills
-they will prove especially useful for working on topics such as inclusion of adults with fewer opportunities.
The main activities in the Project include:
(a)We will carry out 2 transnational meetings, attended by 2 persons from each entity (project coordinator+dissemination coordinator):
-Kick off meeting in Spain.It was planned for September 2018, but we did it on October.
-Evaluation Meeting in UK. Planned for July 2020
-Mid-term meeting (by Skype)
(b) Intellectual outputs
The best practices exchange will be the basis for the creation of a new Dragon Dreaming Methodology with more inclusive, motivational and entrepreneurial features. Adult trainers and adult learners will have an easy way of learning this new methodology through an interactive book and a film (intellectual outputs) which will be created by our strategic partnership.
(c) Three learning activities:
c.1) A3-day participatory visit in UK where CRINNOVA will share best practices on inclusion
c.2) A3-day participatory visit in Finland where Learnmera will share their good practices, initiatives and programmes about motivation and entrepreneurship for adults.
c.3) A10-day course in Spain will be carried to test the effectiveness of the methodology and the interactive book. It will be attended by 10 participants of each entity, who will learn and experience a participatory and creative technique for project design and entrepreneurship called “Dragon Dreaming”.
(d) Multiplier events:
Celebration of one conference per country, followed by a workshop. 40 attendees per country, relevant stakeholders + mass media.
- e) Other supplementary activitieswithout specific budget:
e.1) The knowledge and tools acquired during the course will be further transferred onto other adult trainers and adult people through internal workshops, which will be organized by the direct participants of the training. This, along with the new methodology and intellectual outputs, will result helpful in the new project creation activities which will be carried out by local society members.
Each organisation will carry out 4 internal workshops (1 Phase each workshop: Dreaming, Planning, Doing and Celebrating) in which they will create projects that will go through these phases. These new projects will look forward to having a positive impact and benefit the adult and our society.
No. of projects done by adult participants and trainers (at least 1 for each entity)
e.2) We will carry out a dissemination campaign involving the participation of main stakeholders to maximize the exploitation of the results and intellectual outputs (interactive book and film). (At least 67 entities contacted per country).

**Linguistic Preparation: As speaking English is one of the requirements the participants must comply, each organisation will support them to issue the Europass Language Passport. In this way, we will be able to analyse their English level in order to see if someone needs additional English assistance before the activity. Each organisation will be responsible to provide English Classes or/and tools for those who require to increase their level before their travel.
Preparation regarding the project- We will send an info pack that includes a project summary and course programme to each organisation. A meeting in person will be held, so the adult trainer project coordinator from each organisation can explain the participants all the details regarding the project and the course in Spain.
Preparatory Meetings- The adult trainer project coordinator in each organisation will arrange all the necessary meetings with the participants in order to prepare all the tasks of the project.
Participants involvement and recognision:
After learning activities, adult trainers and adult leaders taken part on mobilities should conduct the internal workshop.
We will issue the following certificates for participants:
– EUROPASS MOBILITY DOCUMENT(after the course)
-Europass Language Passport (each participant should get one before learning activities)
– Attendance Certificate (at the end of each mobility)
O1: DRAGON DREAMING INTERACTIVE BOOK
The interactivebook will be between 70- 80 pages long.

The interactive book is a good solution for catching adults’ attention to read the whole book and motivating them to start a new successful sustainable project.
Leading organisation: CRINNOVA
The writing of the interactive book will be collaborative.
We will proceed with the interactive layout of the booklet.
During the participative visit to Spain, the book will be evaluated and tested.
