Policy events

EUCIS-LLL organises policy events on transversal issues such as the access to lifelong learning or learning mobility. These events are a tool to exchange good practices coming from the various sectors represented in the platform. The goal is to see how a same problematic is tackled in a university, in an association or in a training centre, by the parents, the teachers, the school heads, etc. This lifelong learning approach is central.

Such policy events also enable the members to discuss with representatives of the European institutions in order to confront their realities to the policies implemented at national or European levels. They represent a unique opportunity for our members to push forward some proposals and to discuss openly with public authorities representatives.
