In memoriam Ruth Jermann

Ruth Jermann, former Deputy Director of SVEB and member of the EAEA Executive Board, succumbed to her serious illness on 17 March 2019.

Ruth Jermann has been passionately committed to adult education for 18 years until her retirement in 2015. The sensitization-campaign “Learning Festival” was one of the projects dearest to her heart. She had a decisive influence on the project with her wealth of ideas. She promoted the project both nationally and internationally. Ruth Jermann represented Switzerland in numerous international projects and has always worked to ensure that adult education in Switzerland and Europe was looking beyond one’s own nose.

SVEB and EAEA remember Ruth Jermann as an energetic, enthusiastic colleague and are grateful for the great contribution she has made to adult education.

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.
