A "travelling" congress was conducted in five European cities (Berlin, Warsaw, Prague, Budapest, and Vienna) to promote a mutual exchange of views between east and west. The participants stressed the growing European Community interest in current examples of cooperation with neighbors in central and eastern Europe. In addition to promoting dialogue and the exchange of views and ideas, the "Eurotrain" was developed as a venue to promote western endeavors to support eastern Europe. The congress participants traveled by train for study visits and workshops in the five cities. Each national conference had an opening event in which experts at national and community levels provided participants with an insight into the educational and employment situations in the various countries. Experts from western Europe and the United States provided examples of local structural developments, the development of further training programs, and the planning of integrated training concepts. Workshop participants in the five cities each worked on six topics: international cooperation in training and continuing training; continuing training and migration; training and continuing training in enterprises; vocational training and continuing training in the context of regional, structural, and development policies; continuing training of women; and continuing training at school in the context of adult training. Examples of programs on these themes were provided for each of the five countries. The "Eurotrain" concept of learning exchange was explored and endorsed. (KC)
