EPALE discussion - Basic skills learning provision
Epale - 16/09/2020
Ensuring basic skills for all is a necessary step to enable societies to combat current and future social, health, environmental and economic challenges, and to implement policies effectively in order to support the sustainability of European societies and economies and promote a healthier planet.
Basic skills are transversal. Not only are they relevant to educational policy, but also to employment, health, social and environmental policies. Building cohesive policy measures which support people with basic skills needs is necessary not only to make Upskilling Pathways a success, but also to help build more resilient and inclusive societies.
The online discussion will be moderated by EPALE Thematic Coordinators of EBSN Graciela Sbertoli (Secretary General of EBSN) and Tamás Harangozó.
The discussion will include the following topics:
- critical literacy
- health literacy
- financial literacy
- basic digital skills for the future
Comments will be open on 7 September so participants can introduce themselves or post their comments in advance.
