WinAct- Grundtvig Training courses. Parties and trade unions in many EU countries show a growing awareness that it would be important to recruit more immigrants as active members. Officials in these organisations often do not know how to approach immigrants adequately and how to motivate them for long-term membership and collaboration in the organisation. WinAct addresses these demands. The project aims at promoting active membership of immigrants in political parties and trade unions in Europe. To realise this objective, it develops training programmes for professionals in adult education in Europe for 2008. WinAct builds on results of POLITIS. (contact WinActFlyer Website Winact.
