Meeting with Commissioner Navracsics on Post-Paris Agenda
On 17 November, David Lopez, President, and Audrey Frith, Director of the LLL-Platform, met Commissioner Tibor Navracsics for education, training, youth and sports. The meeting aimed to discuss the follow up of the Post Paris Declaration: what will be the priorities of the Commission and how can European civil society organisations contribute to its implementation? David Lopez reminded the proposal that was made during the 2014 Education Forum to launch a campaign on “Inclusive education for inclusive societies”. Several civil society organisations believe that the European Commission Directorate General for Education and Culture should have a clear agenda to follow up the Declaration. Besides, the implementation of ET2020 priorities related to this Agenda require engaging civil society organisations in a continuous dialogue. Last but not least, the Platform shared the results of its Erasmus+ Survey. The Commissioner reassured us of the strong willingness of the Commission to tackle the challenges of the Paris Declaration with concrete measures.
