Knowledge improves life
The three-day events increased the visibility of ISIO centres in the local environment and enabled us to apply the outreach method and present the options for guidance and support offered by the centres. We placed stress on the positive aspects of lifelong learning.
Most of the centres had a knowledge stand in a public place for at least one day and prepared open doors days, workshops and lectures. Lively presentations and clever and attractive promotional approaches were used to show the visitors the paths to the realisation of their wishes or the satisfaction of their learning needs. We searched for answers to the question of how to overcome the fear or obstacle of restarting one’s education.
As part of the Strengthening Social Dialogue project (in Slovenian), the DSGC this year featured the Association of Free Trade Unions of Slovenia. 12 ISIO centres and representatives of their regional networks prepared events that we have called Knowledge Day. Their aim was to address companies and promote the importance of employee education and training to raise competences and to inform and provide guidance in companies about the possibilities for employee education. They set up knowledge stands, held discussions with employers and organised consultations outside the companies.
Spreading the word about ISIO centres
This year’s DSGC were marked by intensive promotional activity of all organisations participating in ISIO centres. We supported each other through the joint LLW 2020 campaign. This was especially evident on social networks, which offered more information for adults. All the diversity of the events was magnificently showcased on our Facebook (#DneviISIO2020) and Instagram profiles.
