Lithuania implements the principles of inclusive education - school - for all. Expected content: quality education for each student, responding to the educational empowerment and needs of each child.

Curriculum and organization, training of teachers and educational support professionals in the context of inclusion and equality in education.
  • DEVELOPMENT OF COMMUNITY SERVICES AND INNOVATION AS INCREASING SOCIAL INCLUSION AND EQUALITY
  • Social security policy, increasing the social well-being of the country's population through social inclusion, reduction of social exclusion and poverty, developing regional social policy, social and educational services, infrastructure in communities; Experiences of deinstitutionalization processes; Involvement of people with disabilities in virtual social participation and education processes: opportunities, challenges, efficiency. Volunteering as a means of supporting social well-being: additional / untapped human resources / services to stabilize the psychosocial effects of the COVID-19 crisis.
  • BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL WELFARE IN A CHANGING WORLD (COVID - 19 SITUATION CONTEXTS)
  • Recently, there has been a growing scientific debate on human psychosocial health issues related to the Covid - 19 pandemic experience and new challenges for society. This presupposes new perspectives on research, their current relevance for preserving the psychosocial health of members of society. This encourages the development of new strategies, the promotion of cooperation between all groups in society, which would help the society to return to the optimal rhythm of functioning. It is important to assess the psychosocial health situation of people with disabilities that is changing in the context of the Covido-19 pandemic; the change in the reality of education in an inclusive environment and the impact on the psychosocial well-being of the participants in the educational process; stress expression and coping in a virtual educational environment. In order to elucidate the contexts of psychosocial health promotion as social inclusion, empowerment and poverty prevention, it is important to draw public attention to the enabling factors of psychosocial rehabilitation (emergency care in psychosocial health care (helplines, psychologists, psychotherapists)).
  • SOCIAL, EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION FOR EMPOWERMENT, EQUALITY AND INCLUSION
  • The focus on social and educational innovation has increased in a crisis situation that has revealed the social nature of existing problems or has a significant impact on this area. It is probable that even the biggest breakthrough, which promotes the development of personality and society, is possible in the social and educational sphere. New social educational ideas become innovations when they are implemented, create social capital, improve the well-being of people and society. They cover a wide range of areas, from social education services to social networks, to the development of public governance models that engage individuals in tackling emerging challenges.
