MSAE Municipalities Support Adult Education
European Agenda for Adult Learning highlights the need to significantly increase adult participation in formal, non-formal and informal learning whether to acquire work skills, for active citizenship, or for personal development and fulfilment. The agenda outlines a vision of how adult learning should develop in Europe by 2020 and sets the following specific priorities for the years 2015 – 2020, including effective outreach, guidance and motivation strategies to reach and assist adult learners. One of the most pressing challenges for Latvia is strengthening its competitiveness to increase prosperity by reducing the productivity gap with other developed economies, while addressing the impact of the economy on climate (environmental) change, ensuring equal education possibilities in all regions of Latvia. One of the main business efficiencies. Information Report on the Proposal for the National Development Plan 2021-2027 objectives, priorities and lines of action, stress the habits – the Way to Development”, which means that many obstacles to development, including our attitudes, habits and thinking need to be changed – both work, education and collaboration with peers.
We want to increase the number of inhabitants who learns and make informed decisions connected to environmental questions. We want to activate local governments to invest in education and awareness of our people, focusing on the educational needs of socially vulnerable and socially and economically active persons and to capacity building for SMEs, to show the upcoming needs of digital literacy expressed by enterprises, public bodies and, more in general, by the local labour market. We will achieve this goal by giving the possibility to learn and exchange good practices, tools and methods of local authorities in different countries to support adult education and raise knowledge and awareness of their citizens, entrepreneurs and employees. Learning, discussions and exchange of experience will be organized for the staff and adult educators of partner organizations, which will get self-confidence and knowledge to lobby AE in local municipalities. In multiplier events and in an electronic way to local municipalities and other interested stakeholders the project results will be disseminated. Project partners are convinced that the transnational cooperation between them will enhance the activities of municipalities, develop an innovative approach, build new networks, improve methods of work, transfer good practices and a new perspective and increase the number of inhabitants who learns and make informed decisions. Target groups are staff of local governments, Adult Education Associations and adult education providers.
