EAEA welcomed as a new member of the European Movement International

At the Federal Assembly of the European Movement International (EMI), that took place in The Hague (The Netherlands) on the 27th of May, EAEA was welcomed as a new member of the organization.

The European Movement (EMI) is an international organisation open to all political, economic, social and cultural trends in civil society. Its objective is to contribute to the establishment of a united, federal Europe founded on the principles of peace, democracy, liberty, solidarity, and respect for basic human rights.

“EAEA was warmly welcomed by the EMI representatives and EMI members. We believe that adult education needs to be represented in this pro-European civil society movement that is looking at all aspects of European integration and has the objective to strengthen the European construction. I have found in EMI many new colleagues that share the values of EAEA and look forward to working with them”, says Policy Officer Tania Berman, who attended the event on behalf of EAEA.

French member La Ligue de l’Enseignement and EMI France have concluded a collaboration agreement some days before the Federal Assembly took place and will work together on several issues. We encourage other EAEA members to take contact with EMI national members to collaborate together.

Survey reveals that European ALE organisations struggle with access to EU funding opportunities

In a recent survey conducted across adult learning and education (ALE) organisations in Europe in the framework of the Path2EU4AE project, a concerning revelation has emerged: many organisations lack crucial information about various European Union funding programmes available to them. While the Erasmus+ programme is widely known and used in the sector, other funding programmes such as CERV (Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values) and Creative Europe are still largely unknown to many organisations.

Stop taxing the right to adult learning and education!

The national and regional interpretations of the European Union's VAT Directive lead to financial uncertainties and problems for many ALE organisations in Europe. We demand a revision of the VAT Directive to exempt non-formal and non-commercial adult learning and education from VAT.
