Four new COMMEET Toolkits for Community Groups are being developed; they will be completed in the course of 2022. In cooperation with London South Bank University (LSBU) and RCE London through a series of webinars, attention will be paid to their effective launches in the right environment, to ensure that broad exposure to communities across the world is achieved. For this, COMMEET needs help to identify and contact the proper international organisations. COMMEET and RCE London are looking for international support to reach a broad audience, supporting the UN SDG campaign to the max.

For the effective promotion of every Toolkit before its launch, dedicated webinars are organised in the course of the 2022 spring and summer.  A short overview of what can be expected:

  • A description of the problem that is the basis for a particular toolkit
  • A panel discussion and Q & A with experts
  • An invitation to join and support the Toolkit development teams, for instance by delivering existing Promising Practices.

You can sign up for all webinars on this page and you will receive a joining link two days before each webinar takes place. The four webinars are scheduled as follows:

3rd May, 4pm - 5pm: Education for sustainable livelihoods

In this webinar the importance of a good regional system of technical education and training (TVET) will be underlined, to ensure citizens have the capacity to support their community development, making the right expertise available and educating young people for a meaningful follow-up.

The panel consists of Gita Subrahmanyam of the London School of Economics, Shyamal Majumdar, former director of UNESCO-UNEVOC, Glenn Strachan and John Baines, both lecturers and researchers at London South Bank University and Jos Hermans, founder and chair of the COMMEET Fellowship.
