ERASMUS+ Small-scale partnership
26-30.06.2022. Tallinn, Estonia
International seminar of NGO educators on capacity
building for social inclusion - for NGOs and for person
From June 26 to 30, 2022, the International seminar of NGO educators
took place in Tallinn, Estonia. Latvia was represented by
EAPN-Latvia experts Laila Balga and Aigars Sveicers.
The content of this international seminar was aimed at increasing
knowledge and information about social rights and social inclusion
in the public environment, to which non-governmental organizations
contribute. The legal and operational nature of the project partners
makes it necessary to discuss during this seminar the capacity of
network organizations with fewer opportunities to pursue their goals
for social inclusion. This seminar addressed issues related to
raising awareness and building capacity to provide support for the
inclusion of any individual, as well as building capacity of each
organization and network as a whole to support the inclusion of such
an individual, while paying particular attention to the
disadvantaged groups of population.
Through presentations, informative materials and discussions, NGO
educators from Latvia, Estonia, Sweden, Italy and Greece - Laila
Balga, Ruta Pels, Ingmarie Rohdin, Jacopo
Lascialfari, Sofia Katsardi and Spyridon Psychas -
shared their experiences of the situation in their network and put
together proposals that will contribute to the improvement of the
socially inclusive environment and the inclusion process - both in
the partner countries and across Europe.
This seminar also provided an opportunity to share practical
experiences related to successful social inclusion in the six
Estonian organizations / institutions, which was provided by the
partner Eesti People to People, President Ruta Pels.
From the activity results, NGO educators from partner organizations'
networks were going to benefit: they are staff members, experts and
volunteer specialists, a total of 11 participants. The target group
members are people of different ages (30-70), nationalities (5),
both sexes (5 women, 6 men), from national minorities (3),
low-income workers (3), low-payed young people (2), with large
family (1), pensioner (1). However, each target group member's level
of education (1 - Doctor, 4 - Master's Degrees, 6 - higher
education) and previous experience in promoting non-formal adult
education are key determinants for them to participate and expand
their knowledge in this activity.
At the end of this seminar the achieved results were evaluated and
no less then 7 proposals of the participants were summarized.
