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 workshop aims to create a group of resource people in several municipalities who will be trained and convinced in the values, benefits, and advantages of Adult Education and Learning and 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 Learning and Education (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 accurate decision-making, conflict-resolution and community development. In 2019 the game was awarded The Best Civic Education Project Aimed at Activation Communities by the Eastern European Network for Citizenship Education. The authors developed a special edition of the game for the Batumi workshop, where the role of education and Adult Education centers was strongly emphasised. It helped demonstrate direct links between education and development. Five teams of municipal staff participated in a tournament to present the best way of planning and supporting AE activities in their municipalities to make them open and attractive to locals. “It was an amazing game. It was more than a game. It is convincing that learning and development have to continue throughout 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. The quality was very high, and we learned a lot! We will bring this information, experience, and inspiration back to our municipalities!” – mentioned a representative of the Khoni municipality.
