About the conference theme: A frontier represents uncharted territory. New boundaries that you are challenged to explore. Working in prison education, you are always at the cutting edge, facing new challenges, finding new opportunities, and framing new aspirations. The 16th EPEA Training Conference in Vienna will address the shifting context and frontiers of prison education. We invite you to join us in discovering how educational professionals can respond to these developments, and to be inspired by ideas and promising practices from around Europe and beyond.

A collaboration with our local partner OCG promises to result in a memorable International Prison Education Event. Together we will make this event another successful and interesting meeting between Prison Education professionals from Europe and beyond!
