Based on the philosophy and practice of educationalist and activist Paulo Freire, ALP believes in learning as part of our daily lives: things of interest, things of personal use and things to help us make our communities better and stronger. Together we can investigate the world; educate and empower ourselves and each other; learn from ‘experts’ / professionals and from people with more experience – through dialogue, on equal terms, and in a co-operative way.  

If you’re interested in getting involved or finding out more about the project, you’re welcome to come along to one of our monthly association meetings. The ALP Association is an independent body made up of adult learners and supporters of ALP.

Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty monthly meeting @ The Autonomous Centre Of Edinburgh
Oct 28 @ 7:00 pm
Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty monthly meeting @ The Autonomous Centre Of Edinburgh | Scotland | United Kingdom

Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty holds open organising meetings the last Monday of every month at 7pm at ACE, 17 West Montgomery Place EH7 5HA. All welcome.

ECAP organises to combat poverty on the principle of solidarity and self- activity in communities and workplaces, actively rejecting influence by any political parties. We work and fight alongside individuals facing poverty related problems and oppressive behaviour from the authorities. We also conduct wider campaigns on specific issues using the same principles of solidarity and self-activity. Our actions are practical examples of the differences we can make in our day-to-day lives by standing up for one another. But why does ECAP embrace self-activity and reject political parties?

Poverty is no natural disaster but a result of how people organise the world. ECAP considers poverty to be an inevitable part of an economic system based on exploitation and profit. The use of debt to generate profits gave this system a few more decades of supposed stability. But the current global crisis has burst that bubble and now standards of living for waged and unwaged are under attack as the true nature of an exploitative economy is again exposed.

Share your football stories and memories. Build your writing skills, improve your communication skills and meet other fans through the game you love. These courses will include guest speakers, recording methods and occasional events.

The Adult Learning Project runs free courses in women’s studies, politics, economics, culture and community, literacies, the arts and community development.

Based on the philosophy and practice of educationalist and activist Paulo Freire, ALP believes in learning as part of our daily lives: things of interest, things of personal use and things to help us make our communities better and stronger. Together we can investigate the world; educate and empower ourselves and each other; learn from ‘experts’ / professionals and from people with more experience – through dialogue, on equal terms, and in a co-operative way.  

If you’re interested in getting involved or finding out more about the project, you’re welcome to come along to one of our monthly association meetings. The ALP Association is an independent body made up of adult learners and supporters of ALP. Members meet on the fourth Monday of each month at 18:45 in Tollcross Community Centre.
