e-Skills and employability: Report from the 2007 Barcelona workshop

Abstract

On June 19, 2007, twenty NGO practitioners from across Europe gathered at the e‐Skills & Employability Workshop to share best practices and discuss new ways to grow and sustain efforts to support economic empowerment through this field. Co‐organized by telecentre.org and the Esplai Foundation in Barcelona, the workshop provided a venue for participants to share ideas, develop priorities for further growth and programmatic development, and learn new skills to take back to their own projects on e‐skills for employability. This report summarizes the main themes discussed in the workshop and the next steps to further collaboration and networking among NGOs.
