Our Autumn Series of Webinar Wednesdays is for people involved in Education and Training, Youth and Civic Society in Ireland. It will explore the key priorities and values that underpin European Programmes.
We will focus on supporting participants to adapt to the Covid-19 crisis, and explore the concept of European values and priorities in this context. Each week we will discuss a different theme, including: sustainability; creative change; digital education; mental health; equality; disability; detached youth work; and languages for equality.
Register now on Eventbrite. You can join one or more webinars, as you like.
Recordings and slides from each session will be posted on this page as the webinars progress.
