The European Commission has launched a new online public consultation on Promoting social inclusion and shared values through formal and non-formal learning. The consultation is open for contributions from citizens, stakeholders and organisations in the field of education. The consultation probes into how important the respondents think it is to equip young people with shared values, and enquires on the role of education and non-formal learning in fostering social inclusion.
The online questionnaire asks about:
- The perceived success of education and training in supporting the acquisition of shared values, about key challenges therein, as well as about key objectives to be pursued in the future.
- The most effective policy approaches, tools and methods in formal and non-formal learning, in the view of respondents.
- The perceived added value of European cooperation in supporting the effective promotion of social inclusion and shared values through formal and non-formal learning.
The outcomes of the consultation will support the drafting of a Recommendation, which is expected to in turn support member states in better delivering education and training “that promotes social inclusion and ownership of shared values” and contributes to the prevention of radicalisation. The results will also be supplemented by other data and research, with particular importance to be placed on follow-up activities undertaken by the ET 2020 Working Group on the Paris Declaration.
The online questionnaire is open for responses until 11 August 2017.
