[accordion state=”closed” title=”İZMIR ARTI YAŞAM DERNEĞI (Turkey)” tag=”h3″ ]
Our Association is situated in İzmir ,located in the west of Turkey, which is now TURKEY’s 3rd largest city, “the capital” of the Aegean Region, a major port and commercial center set dramatically around a huge bay and backed by mountains to the South.

Basically our association seems to be located in an advantaged area but the education level of seniors and young parents in our district prevents opening to innovations in advance and the town hasn’t been able to develop enough to put them in hand and provide the requirements of social, cultural, business and education even though the number of educated people has been recently increasing. In addition; there are many migrant families live in our town.

The main purpose of our association here is to organise and run activities about all kinds of sporting, cultural, art, social responsibility, educational and environmental issues in order to provide opportunities to young people, parents and seniors in this area such as coordinating activities according to their requirements, having non-formal courses within certain curriculums, organizing seminars and prevent domestic conflicts to the utmost by strengthening intergenerational communication.

Apart from social activities the association gives importance to organizing various seminars and conferences for adults in order to increase the awareness of social responsibility and remove socio-cultural conflicts appeared by the differences of education levels through many migrant families. Mixing cultural wealth which was brought by migrant families in the area with European level and convert it to a universal dimension is also one of our missions.

Our association is targeting to increase the awareness of the family learning and reach to the European Union standards as possible through aforementioned activities. [/accordion]
