The global health and economic crises are forcing nonprofit organisations in Europe and beyond to adapt to unprecedentedly strenuous conditions. One of the greatest needs for nonprofit organisations will be understanding the evolving political context and continuing to engage with target audiences and deliver high-level content.
In response to this challenge, the Green European Foundation is putting forth a workshop on the challenges of the post-Covid world for NGOs, aiming to assist civil society actors and grassroots movements working on the topics of education on Europe and European values, to find solutions to their needs.
The workshop will take place on October 23, 2020, from 14:00 – 15:30.
Throughout the 1.5h workshop, participants will discuss the current political trends affecting the EU policies on education and culture, as well the challenges ahead for NGOs in that field and discuss adaptation strategies, ideas, plans to continue their work on education on Europe and the promotion of European values in the aftermath of COVID-19.
There will be three speakers sharing their insights, followed by questions from the moderator and audience. The discussion will be followed by open space sessions on topics that the participants will be invited to join, depending on their interest, and exchange about best practices and challenges. We aim to have participants representing small and medium-sized non-profits, activists and representatives of grassroots movements.
Denise Chircop is a policy analyst with the European Parliament Research Service (within the Structural Policy Unit more specifically), specialising on the topic of education, formal and non formal. In the last few months she has studied and written on the impact of Covid-19 on education with briefings with adult learners in the digital world, education in isolation during the pandemic, non formal learning.
Davide Ferrari is the Chief of Research at VoteWatch Europe, supporting the team with quantitative and qualitative research on voting records in the European Parliament and the European Council, as well as other EU-related political developments. He will discuss the latest political trends in the EU institutions and the impact of Covid-19 on EU policies and budgets on education and culture.
The third speaker will be shortly announced.
