GLAD - Civil Society

GLAD Conference: the Civil Society Organisations and Human Capital Development in the Context of Lifelong Learning

Civil Society Organisations reach out to the vulnerable, marginalised ethnic groups and the geographically isolated, and in that sense, they are teachers - communicators of learning, coaches, advisors - playing a fundamental role in supporting people. We need to include them when forming policies.” arises from the ETF study on the role of CSOs in human capital development in Albania, Jordan, Serbia, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.

On 18 October, we’ll discuss what is currently done for recognising the civil society organisations as critical actors in education and training policies, at country and international level; what kind of possibilities and challenges these organisations face, how they are engaged in governance; we will try to identify the ways of advocacy and networking to reach solid engagement in lifelong learning and skills development. 

We'll have 4 main topics to discuss with you:

9:00  – 11:00 Session 1: The role of Civil Society Organisations in Human Capital Development and Lifelong Learning: strengths and challenges

11:30 –12:50 Session 2: The CSOs in policy design, implementation, and measuring impact (in working groups onsite and online)

14:00 – 15:00 Session 3: Tools and instruments used by the CSOs, CSOs networks and CSOs agencies to achieve impact in Human Capital Development and Lifelong Learning

15:10 – 16:00 Session 4: Planning the future

This conference, co-organised by the European Training Foundation and the Lifelong Learning Platform, is open to the contributions from CSOs from partner countries and EU-wide networks including the European Association for the Education of Adults and Solidar Foundation, governmental representatives and EU institutions.
