Implementing the new Agenda for Adult Learning: are we there yet?

For those countries where the renewed European Agenda for Adult Learning (2011) has been fully implemented, adult education structures are comparatively strong. However, many of our EAEA members have stated that the Agenda has only been partially implemented in their country, despite the fact that it should supposedly have been implemented by all EU member states by 2020. A number of other members noted that civil society organisations have had little-to-no influence in the implementation process in their country, despite it being crucial for successful application of the Agenda and its framework.

In a statement about the renewed Agenda, EAEA clarifies that it is essential that there are comprehensive strategies for adult education in Europe in place from 2020 onward. Cooperation between all current European strategies, as well as global frameworks, concerning adult education, EAEA believes, will help to cement values, creating a more holistic approach to adult education policy and provision.

Implementing the new Agenda for Adult Learning: are we there yet?

How technology can benefit and engage new learners? Icimende ribera voloratae num aut ducienit, cuptae. Et preperum sunt reniet, Bit etur rerferibus repersperae.

Change-oriented adult education - How do we go from reacting to changes to shaping the future?

Adult educators should not just adjust to the rapid changes in our society, but engage also in shaping of the society, when needed. To do this, we need change-oriented adult education. FuturelabAE-project aims to inspire adult educators to take a more proactive role in solving modern day challenges. It has now published a theoretical report including examples of change-oriented learning.
