My main concern is to create learning moments and activities which enable people to live the outcomes of their behaviour and their decisions in artificial conditions, so that they can change their decisions easily and to prepare them for real life experience. It is difficult to decide what lesson should be like to inspire correct understanding and correct decisions. We have a lot of work to work that out, and open professional collaboration is the right tool for that purpose.

There is a lot already done to foster inter-sectorial collaboration, teacher professional collaboration in LieDM association, in EDEN, during various Erasmus+ projects and other EU initiatives. Our team put every effort to make this conference another step towards this goal.
