#CPW13: Grundtvig Case Studies

Grundtvig logo

Challenge Poverty week is in full swing - national events bring together groups and individuals to highlight what is being done to tackle poverty in Scotland.

As part of the week's events, we held a small talk to share reflections and experiences of the Grundtvig programme - a project to facilitate the mutual learning of innovative tools of community development which tackle issues faced by marginalised social groups in different regions of Europe. Videos of the trips by SCDC staff and our colleagues from across Europe helped spark lively discussion and debate and it was great to hear other thoughts, perspectives and ideas.

Along with this we have now published eighteen case studies which detail the groups and projects which we came across during the partnership's collective visits to Scotland, Hungary, France and Spain. They each provide their own interesting insights and demonstrate the common issues, challenges and approaches across Europe in trying to fight poverty.

As Thursday 17th October is The United Nations International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, we hope these case studies will help to build on the work being carried across Scotland and the world.
