All interested in European networking, cooperation and networking - please feel invited to the European Networking Conference valorising the key outcomes of the “EUropean NETworking as a method for further training and exchange of ideas in the lifelong learning sector” [EU NET] project!

The Conference will take place 17th of April 2024 in the Citizenship Centre in Kraków, Poland (Centrum Obywatelskim in Kraków, Reymonta 20 Str., the building of the Henryk Reyman City Stadium). The conference starts at 9.30 p.m. and ends at 2 p.m. (The networking space will be opened by 4 p.m.)

The conferrence will be accompanied by the European Networking Fairs dedicated to the organisations interested in European level cooperation and networking.

Directly after the Conference, the Annual Meeting of the FIRST Network members begins.

The aim of the Conference is to share knowledge and tools developed during the 28-months long cooperation of five Civil Society Organisations from five European countries: Poland, Italy, Hungary, Iceland and Portugal - as well as to create a space for networking and European cooperation building.

We invite to the conference the representatives of Civil Society Organisations (i.e. associations, foundations, social cooperatives, etc.)/institutions/enterprises/informal groups interested in European cooperation and lifelong learning. We invite board members, workers, co-workers, owners, managers, volunteers and members.

During the Conference, the following topics will be presented and discussed:
- The interactive Toolkit on European project management dedicated to the Civil Society Organisations, in two parts: Part 1: "Project planning and designing" and Part 2: "Managing, monitoring and evaluating the project".
- Recommendations for developing European cooperation of the Civil Society Organizations active in the Lifelong Learning Sector.
- Ecological and social aspects of Inclusion and Diversity in adult education.
- Digital transformation for better distance and online teaching and learning for adults.
- Environmental awareness of the learners and educators & supporting active democratic participation of the adult Europeans.

The interested will be offered the opportunity to present their organisations/institutions/enterprises/informal groups during the European Networking Fairs (we offer a table and space to display information/promotion materials about the activities of the represented organisations. What is more, we will invite you to prepare 1-page presentation of your organisation summarising its expertise and areas of interest for the European cooperation).

The Fairs are being organised by the FIRST Network, an international network of civil society organizations operating in the area of adult liberal education (lifelong learning). The Mission of the FIRST Network is strengthening the capacity of civil society organizations and entities active in the adult education sector to operate in the international arena, enhancing innovativeness and the ability to adapt to changes in the modern world. It includes organisations from Poland, Italy, HUngary, Portugal, Iceland, Denmark, Austria and Spain. Perhaps it is during the EU NET conference that you will make new international contacts for the organisation/institution/group you represent?
