Learning is also a matter of heart and soul
“Learning is also a matter of heart and soul,” said the President of Slovene Philanthropy Anica Mikuš Kos in the introduction of the online Forum on Learning and Education for an Inclusive Multicultural Society, organised on 20 January 2021 by the Slovenian Institute for Adult Education (SIAE), SLOGA, a Platform of Non-governmental Organisations for Development, Global Education and Humanitarian Aid and Slovene Philanthropy. She emphasised that helping immigrants to learn and integrate into society is “a great lesson in solidarity” and added how important it is “to offer immigrants a positive experience, a lesson in something good. They have already experienced a lesson in something bad.”
At the Forum, which took place before International Day of Education and was attended by more than 200 participants, we discussed the intersection of migration and formal, non-formal and informal education to strengthen inclusive multicultural societies.
Programme strand on migrations and challenges of multiculturalism from the adult education point of view took place as a part of the process of Implementation of the European Agenda for Adult Learning 2020-2021 (EAAL project), coordinated by the SIAE in Slovenia.
