The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) organizes an online conference on the latest innovations in adult learning in Europe and the US. The organization identifies an urgent need for adults’ further qualification and retraining for new jobs and sectors. In contrast, the OECD Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC) suggests that less than half of adults in European countries and the US participate in training. Adults who are lower-skilled or older are also much less likely to train than their peers, according to the study findings.
The 2022 online conference “Innovative approaches for future-ready adult learning systems” will bring together experts and practitioners to discuss the latest innovations in adult learning in Europe and the US. The virtual conference will be held over two days, and will include presentations from the OECD, expert panels, and discussion tables.
