The fundamental values of solidarity, equality, participation and social justice are the cornerstones of the process of building inclusive learning and sustainable societies, where people are given opportunities to develop and to cooperate as free and equal individuals.
SOLIDAR members work towards creating an inclusive learning society based on openness and democracy, where everybody is a learner and has a chance to participate in lifelong and life-wide learning opportunities. An educated and well-informed citizenry forms an indispensable part of a democratic society and is a prerequisite for active citizenship and to tackle cultural poverty. On behalf of its members, SOLIDAR advocates for ensuring that their objectives are reflected in the structure of the European Education Area as well as in all other relevant policy initiatives. This will imply promoting personal and collective emancipation; individuals’ full civic, social, and economic participation in society and the holistic growth of all learners – to ensure that everyone achieves the maximum according to their abilities.
SOLIDAR strives to ensure that everyone is prepared to actively participate in a fast-paced and constantly changing society, especially by means of developing skills and competences through all types of education, in a lifelong and life-wide manner, for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, for adapting to the digital revolution, and for pursuing environmental and climate justice. Our network will strive for these goals also within the Conference on the Future of Europe and similar initiatives to enhance civic engagement in Europe and ensure the involvement of CSOs in policymaking debate.
Our work will be focused on the following areas:
