Lifelong Learning Platform | LLLP - European Civil Society for Education

CB4LLP Final Conference, Athens

fThe final conference of the Capacity Building for Lifelong Learning (CB4LLP) project in September 2014 in Athens, Greece brought together more than 130 participants – decision makers, local and national cultural and educational institutions and companies. It was focused around key policy areas, which are analysed from different perspectives and by multi-level actors: skills shortages, early school leaving and NEETs, innovation in education and local development within macro-regions. As one of the partners in the project, EUCIS-LLL co-organised the workshop on Innovation in education and training. Some of the main conclusions were that innovation, in addition of being a matter of organisational survival, is also very much a social responsibility towards the community and that capacity-building processes can be a lever for more cultural openness to innovation.
