Many EPEA members took part in the conference “Pathways to Inclusion – Strengthening European Cooperation in Prison Education and Training”. The conference was arranged by the European Commisson Life Long Learning Programme.
The conference had the following objectives:
- to draw together some of the main outcomes of the initiatives supported by European funds;
- to foster the mainstreaming of good practices by drawing them to the attention of policy-makers;
- to promote networking and exchange of experiences between organisations and key individuals working in this field;
- to identify future needs for European cooperation in this area, in the light of overall policy trends.
Among the participants was the EPEA Chairperson Anita Wilson that in a round-table among stakeholders took the viewpoint of the prison educators in describing the future trends.
