|An idea bank was created during the groups work at the
Network conference “ New opportunities for co-operation on he solution of women’s
employment issues in Europe”, which took place in Kaunas, Lithuania in July, 2000. Some
of ideas are sketchy, while others have been drafted in detail, but all of them require
processing and planning. This ideas gives the framework for the future co-operation in the
new projects and were created within the context of the life-long learning concept and ODL
technology, which will open-up the new opportunity for co-operation on the solution on
women’s training and employment issues in Europe.
The ideas are presented here in truncated form. Before the presenting the ideas, we would like to describe the problems with women’s employment and life competencies, which were defined during the brainstorming session at the conference.
Taking into account the problems and reality, the work-groups suggested to develop the follows directions for women’s projects, which we can include to the idea bank of the network:
Job hunting though Internet
We hope that these ideas could develop the adult learning, which plays a vital role in any strategy for facing the challenges of the future.
“Economic growth is essential, to maintain our standards of living and protect the environment. But the main pillar of today’s growth is not the production of more and more goods. Growth is underpinned by ideas and is shaped within the framework of a global economy, where the competence (knowledge, skills and other components) and renewal are the key factors in competition”-
