Promimpresa is a partner of the Lifelong Learning Grundtvig project “WELNESS – Skills for true wellbeing” (527797-LLP-2012RO-GRUNDTVIG-GMP).
Skills that ensure sustainable wellbeing are fundamental to one’s ability to make the best use of his/her potential, cope with life challenges, work fruitfully and contribute to other people’s lives in a meaningful way.
This project aims at equipping adult education professionals and learners in skills that will allow them to monitor their level of wellbeing and, when needed, to apply self-regulation strategies in order to return to satisfying level of wellness. As a result, they will be able to use their potential fully as they will have access to their inner resources such as clear and focused thinking, visionary thinking, imagination, deriving wisdom from their experience, problem solving, intuition, emotional balance, ability to connect with others in respectful and meaningful way, motivation, energy etc.
