EBSN podcast series on EPALE: Building resilience through basic skills programs

Document available also in: BG ES FI LV EL

The current EPALE podcast was made by the European Basic Skills Network under EPALE’s third thematic focus on basic skills provision. EBSN initiated a dialogue with experts from member organisations to address the general condition and role of basic skills policy and practice in building resilience of adults.

The COVID crisis has shed new light on the importance of basic skills.

Making citizens and societies more resilient to unexpected challenges and allowing them to become more prepared to adapt quickly to fast changing circumstances are of key importance. General experience and the thematic focus of the European Skills Agenda reflect the need for investing in skills and in important areas of people’s lives such as their health, work, finances and social fairness.
