On September 23rd, 2021 the project consortium representatives from CGE Culture Goes Europe – Soziokulturelle Initiative Erfurt e.V. and IWM GmbH had the change to talk about the need for learning opportunities among migrant adults, especially women, in regards to digital skills and entrepreneurial competences at the conference “LifeSkills – The Future of Adult Education?”. These life skills are extremely important in the current competitive labour market and when taught properly can make big difference in the life of a migrant community.
The conference „Life Skills – Zukunft der #Erwachsenenbildung“, organised by the German National Agency for Adult Education, Nationale Agentur beim Bundesinstitut für Berufsbildung (NABIBB) – Europäische Erwachsenenbildung in Deutschland and EPALE – Adult Learning in Europe, presented an opportunity to discuss what exactly is behind the term Life Skills, which has an important place in the Erasmus+ program and thus also for EPALE and for the European agenda for adult education. The conference content gave an idea about the latest developments on the concept of life skills from the point of view of the EU Commission and from a scientific point of view. Many organisations presented their work and projects there, Think Social consortium included.
Think Social – Promoting Social Entrepreneurial Mindsets project aims to encourage and enable disadvantaged groups of adults or adults with fewer opportunities, such as migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, low-skilled or low-qualified with a main focus on women to foster the social entrepreneurship idea and spirit in their local and at the EU level through the exchange of good practices and the adoption of innovative digital strategies.
