As a result of very successful cooperation so far in the field of adult education, the director of DVV International - Country Office, Mr Dr.sc. Emir Avdagić held a meeting with the Minister of Education, Youth, Science, Culture and Sport of Bosnia-Podrinje Canton Goražde, Mr Damir Žuga in which they discussed needs and potential joint activities in this field in the future.
In Bosnia-Podrinje Canton Goražde, the „Strategy for Adult Education 2018-2022“ has been recently finished and adopted by the Government, with the task of developing the capacities of all citizens for education and learning through complete integration of the adult learning and education concept in the education system of Bosnia-Podrinje Canton Goražde. Through realisation of joint activities DVV International will provide a full support to implementation of this strategy.
Apart of this, current situation of adult education in Bosnia and Herzegovina was also discussed, as well as the expectations for adoption of the Law on Adult Education in three remaining administrative units of the country. As a very complex process of ensuring appropriate implementation follows the adoption, experiences of Bosnia-Podrinje Canton Goražde and support of DVV International can be of a great importance.
At the end of the meeting, details regarding a visit of the regional director of DVV International for Caucasus, Turkey and Southeast Europe, Ms Maja Avramovska to this canton within her official visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is going to be realised at the end of April, were agreed upon.
