EAEA Year of Adult Education in Europe 2017 – the Power and Joy of Learning
EAEA’s campaign the Year of Adult Education in Europe 2017 has been launched! With the campaign EAEA wants to celebrate adult education and the work of civil society organisations in Europe. By bringing together the events of EAEA members and other adult education organisations, we want to demonstrate how adult learning can improve citizens’ lives and prospects in Europe, both on a personal and on a professional level. In addition to showcasing the benefits of adult education, we will also collect key messages and best practices from the event organisers to be shared with policy-makers and adult educators at the end of the year.
