The project's main priorities will include presenting the EPALE platform to the adult education community in Croatia, motivating the community to participate in the EPALE platform and supporting the Central Support Service in providing quality content on the multilingual, dynamic, interactive and innovative platform.

All formal and non-formal organizations providing adult education, teachers, coaches, managers, scientists, representatives of public authorities responsible for education and employment of adults.

Our goal is that through promotion of EPALE we approach local, regional and state level stakeholders, to encourage them in taking an active role in the field of adult learning, to disseminate information on EPALE and encourage stakeholders to become registered active users of EPALE platform.

The stakeholders with whom we plan to cooperate are: organisers of adult education, professionals, development and scientific research institutions in the various social sectors, as well as NGOs.

Ministries of Education and other administrative bodies at all levels (entity, cantonal, Brcko District) responsible for education.

The ministries and other administrative bodies at all levels of government responsible for labor, employment, social policy, finance and other departments within the government sector. The social partners - trade unions, representative of the social partners, businesses and professional associations, local governments, civil society organizations.

These participants are supposed to continue the promotion of EPALE at the lower levels.

The EPALE will be promoted through various promotional activities, including regional conferences, promotional presentations, creating newsletters, promotional materials and videos, and through collaboration with key stakeholders. NSS will regularly contribute to the EPALE's content and implement activities (focus groups, workshops, joint research, online surveys) with the aim of improving and increasing both the quantity and the quality of content. NSS will also actively participate in the EPALE online community. NSS website will be updated and new content will be added. Content will be translated from Croatian to English, English to Croatian and Croatian to the main European languages, in order to promote multilingualism on the EPALE platform. NSS will cooperate with CSS and participate in activities organized by CSS. and Croatia, a Regional Conference on EPALE. (NSS Slovenia, NSS Croatia, NSS Bosnia and Herzegovina, NSS Montenegro).

At the local level, we will organise 30 events / visits to target groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina. There are going to be visits to each canton (10 cantons) in the entity of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, visits in the entity Republic of Srpska and a visit to District Brčko. We plan that at each of these meetings we have 12 to 20 representatives of all stakeholders. 

Expected results:

1) increased number of registered users from Bosnia and Herzegovina

2) content which will contribute to the platform and encourage other users to contribute with their own work

3) the EPALE online community will be animated

4) maintenance of the EPALE NSS website
