On 26-29 July 2021 3-day workshop was organised for staff members of the Education and Cultural departments of 13 municipalities of Georgia. The aim of the workshop is to create a group of resource people in several municipalities who will be trained and convinced in values, benefits, and advantages of Adult Education and Learning and clearly see the direct link between education, development, and well-being of community members. A workshop with 30 participants was conducted in Batumi by the invited trainers from Belarus and Ukraine. Models of Adult Education and Learning (ALE) and modern strategies of organising Adult Education (AE) processes; successful examples of cooperation between ALE providers and local government in different countries; quality assurance and budgeting of ALE; policy support to AE – these and many other important practical issues were in the focus of discussions facilitated by Belarus trainer Alena Lugovtsova. On the third day of the workshop, Ukrainian trainers and board game creators, Taras Tymchuk and Mikhailo Voitovich invited the participants to play a one-day board game “World of Communities”  - a multiplayer cooperation strategy board game, which closely models real life and real decision-making, conflict-resolution and community development. In 2019 the game was awarded as The Best Civic Education Project Aimed at Activation Communities by the Eastern European Network for Citizenship Education. For the Batumi workshop, the authors developed a special edition of the game where the role of education and Adult Education centers was strongly emphasised and this helped to demonstrate direct links between education and development. Five teams of municipal staff participated in a tournament to demonstrate the best way of planning and supporting AE activities in their municipalities to make them open and attractive for local people. “It was an amazing game. It was actually more than a game. It is really convincing that learning and development have to continue throughout the whole life and we have to support it as much as we can,” – said a representative of Tetriskaro municipality. “This is the second time I am participating in a capacity-building programme for local self-government organised by DVV International. As always, the quality was very high and we’ve learned a lot! We will bring this information, experience, and inspiration back to our municipalities!” – mentioned representative of the Khoni municipality.
