1, Rökstólar have been working on international educational projects related to developing Learning to Learn competences of adults. Here is the overview with basic details of the ongoing ones:

  • SHE EMPOWERS is a 3-year international project (2014-2017) funded by the European Commission focused on the issue of women´s unemployment and ways that support unemployed women to fulfill their potential in the society. You´re welcome to read more about the project idea here. The latest news in relation to project activities are to be found in the NEWS section
  • SELF-DIRECTED LEARNING FOR EMPLOYMENT AND EMPLOYABILITY is a 2-year international project focused on the issue of long-term unemployeds and innovative ways of working with them while fostering holistic development of the person in innovative learning spaces based on Self-directed lerning principles.

2, Rökstólar have been contracted to preparecarry out and evaluate a set of international educational activities for various National Agencies organized for youth in the frame of European Projects funded by the European Commission. Recently, we´ve been cooperating with the Icelandic National Agency alias EUF (Evrópa Unga fólksins).

All educational activities are based on experiential learning and are carried out in the frame of non-formal education. Many of those that we´ve been carrying out are targeted at European Volunteers.


Our latest international training where we looked at the system as the whole: EVS SPIRIT took place in September 215 in Laugarvatn.
