EUCIS-LLL Public Hearing on “Basic Skills for Inclusive Growth: A civil society perspective”: General Report online!
As the Commission just released a Communication on “Rethinking Education: investing in skills for better economic and social outcomes” notably recommending raising the level of basic skills, EUCIS-LLL organised a public hearing on “Basic Skills for Inclusive Growth: a civil society perspective” on 28 November at the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels. The public hearing, organised within the framework of EUCIS-LLL’s “Lifelong Learning Week 2012”, aimed to highlight the fact that progress in equipping citizens with basic skills remains largely insufficient in Europe. As basic skills providers, civil society organisations can help in framing the debate and they exchanged views and ideas on the role of basic skills in lifelong learning strategies in a context of crisis. More than a hundred participants attended the hearing. Check the general report…
