We at SIAE are in favour of a spring edition of LLW again
Precautions against COVID-19 have already forced LLW and the Learning Parade – a Day of Learning Communities into autumn twice. When that happened the first time, we had quite a hard time. Safe forms of socialising had to be found, and many partners at the local level decided not to participate due to the fear of infection. Fortunately, new organisers have established contacts with the coordinators. We used flexible approaches, learned a lot, forged partnerships with other autumn projects. Many events were carried out online, and recordings of these exciting events are still available today. Greater accessibility (conditioned by digital literacy and appropriate infrastructure) and sustainability were strong virtues of the LLW 2020 and 2021 events in Slovenia. Thanks to that, we concluded that the experience was educative and positive despite of the significant reduction in the number of organisers and events. Last year it was even better, as we could only upgrade the experience gained, highlight the benefits and look for ways to overcome the shortcomings. Being out of the comfort zone always offers opportunities for growth!
Nevertheless, we wished to return to the May and June weeks, which have been hosting the Slovenian learning festival since 2004, points out Zvonka Pangerc Pahernik in the SIAE Newsletter.
