ORIZONT CULTURAL T (OCT)
ORIZONT CULTURAL T is a cultural association from Craiova, Dolj (Romania), opened by trainers and Methodists, university teachers, inspectors, as a result of experience of involvement in Grundtvig 1& 2 projects, Comenius, Arion, Grundtvig 3.
OCT is developing intergeneration programs for learners, young and adults, living on the eastern platform of the city and in rural area, a socially and economically disadvantaged area, due to the concentration of “disadvantaged” people and to the recent closing of many factories.

Target groups are young-adults, learners, young-parents, grandparents, people with low level of education but interesting to develop new competence or to adapt in the new context of European integration, persons at risk of marginalisation, like unemployed young-adults and adults, immigrants, refugees, gypsies, people with special needs, to be educated, to get equal chances to information, to become active European citizens.

We provide a wide range of services such as:
– Training on basic literacy, social, civic, cultural, historical, geographical, modern languages and computer skills;
– Easy learning English – free courses;
– Courses in new technology-free courses;
– Learning modern & folk dances;
– Social events such as cultural trips or folk performances;
– Cultural events such as conferences, symposiums, round tables, multicultural workshops focused on marginalization, people similarities and differences, European culture values, living in diversity, respect for human rights;
– Fighting against social and cultural disadvantage and risk of marginalization
– Promoting cultural heritage in the respect of living together in a common Europe.
This is done by means of several different programmes whose specific objectives are:
– The acknowledgment of skills and abilities attained at different periods throughout one’s life without reference to a formal education record;
– Addressing the need to acquire new knowledge and skills in the face of highly developing science and technology;
– The development of knowledge and competencies on key concepts as active citizens;
– Raising people awareness about stereotypes making them aware of their similarities and differences and the spiritual enrichment and the enjoyment of life in the face of rising income level.

  3. The activities and projects of Orizont Cultural T, are very useful and interesting for adults, members and volunteers of our community.
    They have a great impact in promoting cultural heritage as European added values.
    They matches with the objectives in promoting cultural diversity, inclusion and active participation of adults in society as active European citizens.
    It help us to make a contribution as Europe is a common space for all, whereby every generation has the responsibility to safeguard the future of Europe.
    It is very important to seek the ways of preparing adults to play a dynamic role for their own community and in Europe
    We are getting a cumulative experience of reform, innovation, research and the remarkable adult educational progress;
    Being involved in different projects and activities, we are in touch with trainers, providers, with persons interested in adult education, formal and non formal issues.
    I want to congratulate organizer, participants, to encourage members, volunteers, young and seniors them to explore a variety of methods for bringing adults closer to be educated, to became understanding, tolerant, more educated through a pleasant intercultural dialog.
    We are getting new experience for exchanging good practices that at the moment are being applied within the cultural diversity as important roll in social inclusion, new opportunity to improve mutual trust, understanding and communication between the disadvantaged individual and the supporting organization towards an effective cultural European dialog;
    This exchange of experience is also meaningful since it is based on backgrounds with many similarities and interesting differences of cultural diversity.
