Open Your Eyes, Look up to the Sky

Giving everyone access to learning through astronomy.

https://www.wea.org.uk/

 

Open Your Eyes will use skills developed through astronomy to better the lives of people who are unemployed or disabled, with low levels of literacy or numeracy and mental health or learning difficulties, those living in disadvantaged communities and the digitally excluded.

Open your Eyes will use and enhance the grass-roots learning networks of the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA), training tutors and developing new materials as the project progresses. The WEA has a strong social purpose: this project contributes to their goals in employability, health, community engagement and culture.
