which promote sustainable use of natural and human resources, improve people´s employability and wellbeing and combat exclusion in Pirkanmaa, Morogoro and Kampala regions, in the context of global industries and trans-national policies.
Through ReWell, we search for new curricula and pedagogy for regional collaboration between universities, adult and vocational education institutes and actors in industry and civil society. We believe that there is a need to increase ethical and environmental awareness and responsibility in adult and vocational education practices, study programmes and research, both in regional and global perspective. We aim at challenging cultural expectations and values related to occupational and social divisions, for example related to gender and entrepreneurship.
Through ReWell we also aim at establishment of East-African network in adult and vocational education, where MU and KyU are pioneering, and at strengthening links between East-African and international practitioner and research communities.
Through ReWell research we explore, how to proceed towards participatory curriculum development (CD), by studying 1) agency in CD processes, 2) relation of CD to regional education (and other) policies, 3) assumptions, conceptions and expectations behind CD, and 4) societal and ethical functions of CD, in the historical and cultural contexts of Finland, Tanzania and Uganda.
