The adult learners  will increase their basic math skills and by means of activities as  problem-solving, maths-crosswords, logic games, they will also develop this  capacity becoming more flexible individuals, easily adaptable to different  environments and situations.
3) Improving  the quality of European adult educational systems by reinforcing cooperation  among partners’ organisations.
The teachers will  meet, organize conferences or seminars to compare the different types of  educational systems and to exchange good practices, information and  experiences.
4) Increasing  foreign languages learning and ICT to promote better mutual understanding,  mobility all over Europe, and also facilitating positive interaction and  relationships in spite of the participants’ basic differences and cultures.
The learners will be  trained in ICT, foreign languages and made aware of these as important means on  communication.
5) Stimulating  creativity and artistic expression to increase the interest and socializing  process between the learners taking into consideration their problematic social  and economic backgrounds
The learners will  express their creativity in different forms (photos, paint, write) and will  discover also the creative aspect of maths, considered as an unimaginative  subject. Since, maths courses will be integrated with various activities  (work-shops on geometrical shapes, drawing on the numbers).
