On the first day, 24 October 2018, in the organization of the Slovenian Institute for Adult Education, the delegation attended the annual conference of the EPUO program in Maribor. Namely, Slovenia has been participating in the two programs since 2014 and this presented an opportunity to share good practices from the previous period. The EPUO program actualizes various topics in the field of adult education and one panel was dedicated to the topic ‘Old Gays Say Yes to Community’. The delegation also learned about the novelties in creating a strategy for the skills with the OECD support, for the period up to 2030.
