EAEA Country reports 2018 published

For the fifth consecutive year EAEA launches its annual country reports in order to provide a civil society insight into the situation of adult education across the continent. The reports outline developments in adult education in different European countries over the past year while they are providing a ground for comparisons between countries. The 2018 edition gathers information from 37 countries.

The country specific information on adult education policy can possibly act as a tool for  influencing the European Semester, the cycle of yearly economic and structural policy coordination from the European Commission.

Adult Education in Europe 2018 – A Civil Society View provides you with the opportunity to:

  • Inform your colleagues across Europe – but also policy makers at different levels – on what you think about the main developments in adult education in your country;
  • Compare your situation with that of other organisations in Europe;
  • Get inspired and propose ideas and good practices to colleagues and policy-makers across Europe;
  • Additionally, in a few years a more long-term comparison of developments will be possible.

The publication is available online in PDF form and as a hard copy at EAEA Secretariat in Brussels.

Innovative methodology includes learners in meaning-making

"The change is in the simple things like finding laughter again, doing family shopping, going back to work, being part of a group where once they were hermits." - says Alice McDonnel about the impact of "Self-care and well-being" project, which participated in Grundtvig Award 2019 on Life Skills, on the participants. The idea of the initiative is underpinned by principles of co-production, mutual trust, and empathy. In the following interview, Alice tells more about the experience.
