Local Economy Group @ Adult Learning Project, Adult Learning Project, Tollcross Community Centre
Oct 15 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Local Economy Group @ Adult Learning Project, Adult Learning Project, Tollcross Community Centre | Scotland | United Kingdom

The Local Economy Group is a space for learning about Edinburgh’s economy. It explores issues such as Council funding, austerity, housing and political exclusion and asks the question, ‘how do changes in the Old Town affect local people?’

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.

The Local Economy Group is a space for learning about Edinburgh’s economy. It explores issues such as Council funding, austerity, housing and political exclusion and asks the question, ‘how do changes in the Old Town affect local people?’

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.
