On February 8, Grobiņa Adult Education Center (PIC) gathered representatives of various fields at the conference “I. We.Society” to talk about the project PIC implemented.
The conference was opened by the moderator and public participation expert Vilis Bruveris, who managed to unite the attendees, make them smile, and inspire them to continue working and be active. Participants talked about change and how each person perceives change. Change can be perceived as a threat or seen as new opportunities.
The visitors of the event had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the digital programs of the Erasmus+ program project "I.We.Society". There are 6 digital programs designed to support various life situations - "When a child enters a new family", "When immigrants choose to return to their homeland", "When people choose to retire", "When people have various disabilities", "When a person is temporarily unemployed", and “When a person is a small business owner and entrepreneur”. Each visitor had previously chosen a topic of interest to him, familiarized himself with the content of the programs and gave his assessment.
After a delicious coffee break, the audience of the event worked in groups and invested their knowledge and creative thinking in the development of lifelong learning and adult education in Dienvidkurzeme region. The groups worked on ideas on such topics as needs, challenges, cooperation, support of the municipality and a vision for the development of lifelong learning in the county.
In general, we got a lot of good ideas and suggestions on how to build adult education, and we will apply the findings in the strategy creation process. Thanks to all participants of the conference for their hard work!
