Basic skills for social inclusion and cohesion
Basic skills for social inclusion and cohesion was the thematic focus of the fourth Annual Conference of the European Basic Skills Network (EBSN), which was hosted by the Hungarian Ministry of Human Resources, the Hungarian Ministry of Interior, and the Hungarian Association for Lifelong Learning in Budapest, from 21 to 23 May 2014. UIL, as one of 66 members from 27 European countries and four associated members from other regions, attended the Conference to participate in debates on how basic skills learning can improve social inclusion and reach the most disadvantaged groups. Conference participants developed a set of recommendations on the issue of basic skills for inclusion. The next Annual Conference will be hosted by the Dutch EBSN partners in May 2015 in The Hague.
