Seventh meeting of DVV International contact persons for adult education - Široki Brijeg, 2016
Fifth meeting of DVV International contact persons for adult education - Lukavac, 2015
The key activity of DVV International at macro level is lobbying for legislation in adult education. Political structure of B&H is very complex so this activity includes cooperation with twelve ministries of education and a Department for Education in the Government of Brčko District. Eight of them have already adopted the law on adult education and have also created additional documents needed for the implementation process of the law. In this process, DVV International has given professional, consultative as well as financial support to these ministries.
Through the lobbying activities, DVV International has created a network of contact persons for adult education who were named by their ministries. The main goal in creating the network was to provide continious work, to exchange knowledge and skills, to learn from others and to harmonize laws on adult education in different ministries. This activity is very successful, because contact persons are the base for capacity development within the ministries. It is very important for better implementation of adult education laws in the frame of an unic education system.
Until now DVV International has organised seven meetings of contact persons that took place in Vlašić, Bihać, Zenica, Goražde, Lukavac, Bjelašnica and Široki Brijeg.
DVV International began its work in Bosnia and Herzegovina in June 2000.
