EUCIS-LLL at the EESC hearing on Rethinking Education

Last 5th of February the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) held a public hearing on the Communication from the Commission “Rethinking Education: Investing is skills for better socio-economic outcomes”. Joke van der Leuuw-Roord, EUCIS-LLL Vice-President, participated in the panel discussion and gave a presentation about the platform’s main concerns and suggestions to this strategic initiative. She particularly invited EU institutions to adopt a broader, more ambitious and forward-looking strategy that would cover formal, non-formal and informal learning in a life-wide and learner-centred approach. Have a look also at EAEA, OBESSU and AEGEE positions on Rethinking Education.
