Forthcoming policy developments

As mentioned in the National Strategy for Lifelong Learning 2014-2020, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth is in the process of developing a mechanism for validation and recognition of non-formal and informal learning (including volunteering).

Lastly, the President of the Republic, through the Council of Ministers, instructed the Commissioner for Volunteering and NGOs to prepare a draft National Strategy for Active Citizenship and Volunteering, for the first time. The strategy will be shaped through public consultation with stakeholders from the public and private sectors, as well as with representatives of Non-Governmental Organizations and Civil Society. The procedure started in February 2021 and is currently ongoing.
