The Institute of International Cooperation of the German Adult Education Association, dvv international, concluded its first adult education conference in the region, titled Closing Gaps, Opening Opportunities: Adult Education and Lifelong Learning in the Middle East.
Participating in the conference were a number of international and regional adult education experts and decision makers from Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon as well as leading regional and international organizations.
The agenda of the two-day conference brought forward a number of panels and workshops that focused on how adult education can contribute to closing gaps in the education system and opening opportunities that will lead to the enhancement of employment and social development as a whole.
"The Conference proved to be successful in highlighting how adult education can respond to pressing in the region issues such as high unemployment among young adults. For dvv international, establishing a viable Adult Education system, which includes targeted courses, qualified trainers, strong adult education providers and supportive policies, is a key to social and economic development," said Katrin Denys, Regional Director Middle East of dvv international - one of the leading organizations focusing on adult education in 40 different countries worldwide.
Jawad Al Gousous, dvv international's Country Director Jordan, added, "The Conference put forward some great examples of how we can use international, regional and local initiatives to promote Adult Education. We can do so much in terms of encouraging community members to develop themselves, and I look forward to further discussions on various cooperation opportunities that will enable us to work together to strengthen Adult Education both here in Jordan and across the region."
