Regional Conference on Lifelong Learning and Non-formal Adult Education in South East Europe
14 Shtator 2012

Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) and dvv international are co-organizing this regional event in Sarajevo, 3-5 october, in line with their interest in exchanging experiences and achievements of existing and creating new cooperation opportunities on the issue of lifelong learning and non-formal adult education in the countries of South Eastern Europe.

Both organizations share a mutual understanding of the value of networking to foster more synergies between the different stakeholders working in the field. Since some significant initiatives have been undertaken in South East Europe aiming at increasing the educational level of population and bringing the countries in accordance with relevant European benchmarks in the EU Acquis, the governments in the region have committed themselves to raise the level of participation in adult learning and education by signing few key documents. Creating a culture for lifelong learning and developing the adult education sector in the SEE region is a complex task because it demands a good cooperation amongst the many different stakeholders involved. The aim of the conference therefore is to strengthen the social partnership for the development of the adult education sector in SEE and to support the implementation of European and international goals in this area. General objectives of the conference will be to enable an exchange on good practice on different issues and to identify reasonable points of intervention for regional cooperation. An overarching key question for all working groups will be on the issue of how regional cooperation can contribute to achieving the set aims in a more efficient and effective way. The outcomes of the working groups will serve as recommendations to dvv international and RCC for further initiatives, activities or programmes to be considered.
