Regional project "Eastern Neighbours"

The Regional project of DVV International is covering six countries in Europe: Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine and will be implemented from 2022 to 2024. Its main objective is to improve policy frameworks for Adult Learning and Education (ALE) and to strengthen ALE centres' contribution to the implementation of SDGs based on best national and regional practices, experience as well international expertise.

For achieving this, the project will work closely with DVV International country offices in the region and its core partners on the meso- and macro-levels. This will include cooperation with national networks, associations and platforms of like-minded organisations and experts on Adult Learning and Education in the region engaged in establishment of enabling environment for ALE and ALE-Centres offering needs-oriented training for their communities.

Building awareness of key actors in ALE from civil society and governments on global and regional policy documents and processes such as Sustainable Development Goals, CONFINTEA VII (Marrakech Framework for Action), European Agenda for Adult Learning 2021-2030 (NEAAL 2030), European Skills Agenda and others is one of the core components of the project. 

Enhancing regional exchange of best practices in establishing and developing ALE Centres in cooperation with local authorities will consolidate existing expertise among partners of DVV International in the countries and create opportunities for further development within the region. Formats of exchange will include international conferences, working group meetings, documentation of best practices, study trips and others.

Capacities of key actors from civil society in the region in establishing and developing ALE-Centres will be developed further by adapting the Curriculum managerALE programme and organisation of annual Advocacy Academies for joint learning and professional exchange facilitated by the leading European and international experts in the field. These activities will include needs assessments, creation video lessons, training and workshops, working group meetings and others.
