The VPL-Biennale concept was designed by the Foundation EC-VPL for the project ALLinHE in 2012. Its focus was on social inclusion for all in Europe’s learning and working environments by developing VPL-approaches to link target groups to learning opportunities. The project allowed learners to use the learning outcomes of their prior learning, gained through different life-activities for activating future learning opportunities. This focus is still present in the VPL-Biennale concept.
The concept of the VPL-Biennale is based on the idea of two-yearly organising a manifestation and congress on proceedings and state of the art in VPL’s knowledge base, new instruments and methodologies, presentations of best practices, master classes and implementation-strategies for target groups.
