On the work for the educationally disadvantaged and together with them
At a request of the European Commission (EC), the Slovenian Institute for Adult Education (SIAE) took over the coordination of this meeting as a part of the EAAL project. The PLA’s content was co-created together with the representatives of Bulgaria, Iceland, Poland, Slovakia, and Spain. We were confident that the live event would take place in May, alongside the National Opening of Jubilee Lifelong Learning Weeks (LLW).
However, what happened due to covid-19 was that we hosted it only on 15 and 16 September in a digital environment and in connection with the 24th Adult Education Colloquium (AEC– in Slovenian). In our first Zoom event with international participation, around 80 participants from 30 European countries took part. Slovenian twenty-five member delegation included SIAE employees as well as representatives of the LLW network and ISIO guidance centres, points out Zvonka Pangerc Pahernik of the SIAE in her EPALE blog.
