The Power of Non-formal Learning
Final conference European project 'Life, All-In'

November 17th, 2016
Location: Atlas, Inburgering en Integratie, Antwerpen
Policy initiatives and political debate in Europe set focus on the issue of integration of migrants. The migrants' acquisition of competence in the language(s) of the host country has a significant impact on their integration process. The European educational project 'Life, All-In' investigated how the blend between formal and non-formal learning can enhance the social inclusion of migrant students. We invite you to the final conference of the project.
