All interested in European networking, cooperation and networking - please feel invited to the European Networking Conference valorising the key outcomes of the “EUropean NETworking as a method for further training and exchange of ideas in the lifelong learning sector” [EU NET] project!

The Conference will take place 17th of April 2024 in the Citizenship Centre in Kraków, Poland (Centrum Obywatelskim in Kraków, Reymonta 20 Str., the building of the Henryk Reyman City Stadium). The conference starts at 9.30 p.m. and ends at 2 p.m. (The networking space will be opened by 4 p.m.)

The conferrence will be accompanied by the European Networking Fairs dedicated to the organisations interested in European level cooperation and networking.

Directly after the Conference, the Annual Meeting of the FIRST Network members begins.

The aim of the Conference is to share knowledge and tools developed during the 28-months long cooperation of five Civil Society Organisations from five European countries: Poland, Italy, Hungary, Iceland and Portugal - as well as to create a space for networking and European cooperation building.

We invite to the conference the representatives of Civil Society Organisations (i.e. associations, foundations, social cooperatives, etc.)/institutions/enterprises/informal groups interested in European cooperation and lifelong learning. We invite board members, workers, co-workers, owners, managers, volunteers and members.

The interested will be offered the opportunity to present their organisations/institutions/enterprises/informal groups during the European Networking Fairs (we offer a table and space to display information/promotion materials about the activities of the represented organisations. What is more, we will invite you to prepare 1-page presentation of your organisation summarising its expertise and areas of interest for the European cooperation).

The Fairs are being organised by the FIRST Network, an international network of civil society organizations operating in the area of adult liberal education (lifelong learning). The Mission of the FIRST Network is strengthening the capacity of civil society organizations and entities active in the adult education sector to operate in the international arena, enhancing innovativeness and the ability to adapt to changes in the modern world. It includes organisations from Poland, Italy, HUngary, Portugal, Iceland, Denmark, Austria and Spain. Perhaps it is during the EU NET conference that you will make new international contacts for the organisation/institution/group you represent?

The Conference is being realized in the frames of the “EUropean NETworking as a method for further training and exchange of ideas in the lifelong learning sector” [EU NET] project, co-financed by the European Union in the frames of the Erasmus+ Programme (2021-2027).




The 14 - 21 of March 2024 the FAIE team (the second time in a role of supporters at lifelonglearning for the adult learners) is heading to Alicante, Spain. We are joined by the lifelong learning participants representing two our Partners in education: The Stowarzyszenie Działań Lokalnych Spichlerz and The Stowarzyszenie Uniwersytetu Trzeciego Wieku w Oleśnie.

The host organisation is International Initiatives for Cooperation Galicia.

We shall participate in a Spanish mini-language course for the travellers and seek the oportunities to also practice English. We are planning workshops about the Spanish culture and traditions accompanied by degustation of tapas:) What is more, the participants would have the opportunity to upgrade their digital photography skills and navigating in a new environment using digital navigation tools. We shall visit the city and get some Spanish 'relaxation attitude', enjoying the time together and sharing delicious food. We are all involved in NGOs - so we shall also visit our peers at El Centro de Asociaciones y Voluntariado de Alicante. Once again, we shall use the opportunity to learn together, learn with each other and about each other😊
