EPALE Thematic Coordinator Markus Palmen attended the Dare to Learn event – an international conference with a fresh new take on lifelong learning.
The Dare to Learn lifelong learning event took place from 5 to 6 September 2017 in Helsinki, Finland. State-of-the-art event technology set the stage for a professionally executed marketing campaign and social media presence, an international crowd of attendees and renowned keynote speakers ranging from UNESCO Education Director Svein Osttveit to education entrepreneur Andrew Sutherland. Taking over the rugged ex-industrial premises of the Cable Factory venue in central Helsinki, the event resembled more a Silicon Valley start-up forum than a learning conference.

The development of career guidance and counseling has been looked upon favourably in Europe throughout the 2000s. The role that lifelong guidance plays in promoting the education of citizens and their employment is widely acknowledged in the EU and its Member States. In recent years, multidisciplinary and multi-professional dialogue and co-operation have become more common in the context of guidance in EU member countries. A networked and inter-administrative approach to developing and providing services is now customary. In the 2010s, guidance services have typically been offered to customers through various channels.
