Parallel workshop 19 November 11.00-12.00 AM CET
Speaker: Dina Soeiro, ESEC/IPC Coimbra/EAEA Executive Board, Portugal
The Letters for Life initiative targets adults with low literacy skills, who frequently keep their difficulty with reading and writing a well-hidden secret. Strong partnerships with social and health services have played an immense role in helping adults come back to learning, and their value has proven especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic.
