EDD22 is here, the great event for international cooperation


A team from Humana Fundación Pueblo para Pueblo will be present at the European Development Days 2022, which will be held in Brussels on June 21 and 22. The team attends on behalf of the Federation Humana People to People and the organizations that are part of it.

The EDDs are the main global forum dedicated to international cooperation for development, through which more than 10,000 people from 140 countries pass each year, representing 1,200 organizations linked to development and the improvement of the living conditions of those who most benefit from it. they need. It is organized by the European Commission. For its 15th edition, the EDD will focus on “Global Gateway: building sustainable partnerships for a connected world.”

One of Humana's goals in the EDD is to share the efforts and achievements that are being made through vocational schools. These centers provide young people with formal and informal training in areas such as clean energy, construction, entrepreneurship or clothing. 

For this reason, Humana will have a stand (E17-L),, with the title of Opening the Global Gateway for Vulnerable Communities: Quality TVET for In-clusive and Green Entrepreneurship Ecosystems.” In addition, Humana organizes two sessions open to the public, both in person and through Zoom.

Visit us and learn about our formal and informal TVET programmes in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean! At the stand, you will be also able to virtually visit some of our 16 TVET Schools and vote for your preferred business plan in our entrepreneurship competition.

In addition, Humana will hold two “Coffee & Solutions” informal SESSIONS:

  • Tuesday, June 21, at 3:45 p.m., in room L3. ‘The role of Technical Vocational Training (TVET) in promoting jobs for the Circular Economy”.

Speakers: Humana, ADPP AngolaHumana People to People Belize y SNV

  • Wednesday, June 22, at 10:30 a.m., in room L1. “Information and communication technologies for vulnerable girls and women”.

Speakers: Humana, European Training Foundation, GANHumana People to People IndiaInternational Labour OrganizationVodafone.

Rapid technological changes are impacting all areas of society and can drive economic growth and job creation; they can also enhance the interconnection of global markets. The Fourth Industrial Revolution seemed to promise young people unlimited opportunities for learning and working.

But progress has thus far been uneven and far from equitable, especially for women and girls. As a result, girls are falling behind on acquiring the digital and social entrepreneurship skills needed to compete in the labour force or to start their own business.

This session will share good practices and solutions to close the double divide women and girls face worldwide: the gender gap and the digital gap. The objective is to mobilise stakeholders to reflect and act together towards a more sustainable and inclusive future.
