How we decide to embrace external innovation will decide our future. There is significant innovation going on inside our teams, but the sparkle starts when we reunite with peers all over Europe
Why, at CPIP, do we network? To drive, progress, to gain expertise. Networks and partnerships are the cornerstone of our work, bringing lifelong learning experiences to local European communities
Networking is a matter of creating useful linkages, both within and among communities, organizations, and societies, in order to mobilize resources and achieve various goals. Networking is not just about what you know, but also who you know.
Our latest European cooperation activities in networking. They are the source of inspiration for our expertise:
The networks we are part of:
European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA)
The European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) is the voice of non-formal adult education in Europe. EAEA is a European NGO Originally known as the European Bureau of Adult Education, EAEA was founded in 1953 by representatives from a number of European countries. The purpose of EAEA is to link and represent European organisations directly involved in adult learning with 133 member organisations in 43 countries and represents more than 60 million learners Europe-wide. EAEA promotes adult learning and access to and participation in non-formal adult education for all, particularly for groups currently under-represented.
The EPEA is an organisation made up of prison educators, administrators, governors, researchers and other professionals, whose interests lie in promoting and developing education and related activities in prisons throughout Europe in accordance with the recommendations of the Council of Europe.
The EPEA is recognised by the Council of Europe as a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO). It is committed to working with prison administrators in Europe to further its aims, but is totally free-standing and independent. The EPEA has established itself as the European voice for prison education drawing its membership from over 40 countries.
More and more festivals, concerts, seminars, conferences, urban happenings, sports meetings animate the life of civil society in different regions of the country. Bringing together a large number of people in a relatively small space and for a short period of time, these events, by their ephemeral nature, have a long-term impact on the environment and the communities in which it takes place.
At a “Responsible Event” expect to find:
less polluting solutions for transport to the event site;
in the menu, local products or ecologically certified;
devices for streamlining energy consumption or reducing water consumption;
equipment for selective waste collection;
initiatives to promote human rights and universal values;
decent working conditions for people involved in the organization.
European Diversity and Inclusion Network is an international network for cooperation aimed at sharing the knowledge and experience in the field of diversity and diversity management in the workplace as well as promoting D&I directly in business and indirectly in socio-cultural environment.
EDIN Network involves organisations of different sectors (business, science, non-governmental and public) and of different size (small, medium and huge corporations) from all over Europe. This way they create international space for European cooperation for D&I.
EDIN is focused on the exchange of experience and knowledge in the field of D&I, promoting effective solutions related to diversity management in business and spreading the idea of Diversity & Inclusion: promoting the benefits of working in diverse environment and implementing solutions that mitigate barriers for creating open and friendly workplace.
