What is it About?

 I_Improve is a process-focused project and uses an informal education approach to turn the partners' daily working environments into spaces for learning and organisational growth. By working closely with inspirational and innovative creative practitioners, each partner explores new ways of developing actions along our European waterfronts. Through the key ideas of observation, dialogue, reflection and experimentation, these selected 'change makers’ become a resource from which our organisations and staff members can gain new competences in their working lives. 

The use of a variety of digital transmedia sources to share content is a part of staff members learning activities and an example of lifelong learning practices. We use multiple online platforms to exchange learning insights, spread perspectives on the ‘how’ and ‘why’ behind cultural interventions on European waterfronts as well as promote new approaches to organisational learning within the cultural sector. Hence, reflections and experiences of staff members in a digital environment as a tool for learning take an important place on the educational platform of I improve.
