The period of the Soviet Union had a great impact on the history of Belarus. However, the history of the ordinary individual remains unnoticed. A man, who learned, started a family and raised his children, who worked and had his own thoughts and beliefs about the changes that occur in the country. But, what do we know about it? The competition 'Behind the scenes: From the history of the family to the history of the Community' offers us a great opportunity to find out more about the life and human relations in the latter half of the 20th century in Belarus by analyzing family photos and talks with bystanders of that time. Besides we could compare it with the life and the history of a family and a community.

After the new Belarusian Code of Education entered in force as well as relevant regulations took effect, the term “adult education” has broadened its meaning considerably. At the time it means not only a system of advanced training but also any organized educational process for adults (including non-formal education). All this creates new opportunities and sets new tasks that include ensuring effective cooperation between different social stakeholders, development of regional systems of further and non-formal adult education and their optimization according to the needs of the regions etc. The project “Learn to Act” is designed to contribute to accomplishing this mission.
