The first online discussion this year was dedicated to the presentation of the thematic focuses of EPALE 2021.

It took place on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. We discussed three themes that we placed at the centre of EPALE in 2021: Life and Work Skills, Digital Transition and Inclusive Social Change.

We started with a live broadcast hosted by Gina Ebner and Aleksandra Kozyra on behalf of the EPALE Editorial Board. Both are representatives of the EAEA. The broadcast was followed by a written online discussion. It was moderated by Claudia D’Eramo and Sara Saleri with CSS EPALE.

The discussion took place here, where you can also read the writers’ comments.
