It’s that time of year again! Our call for applicants for the 2020 Grundtvig Award is now live, and can be found here: Grundtvig Award 2020. 

Every year, EAEA looks to adult education projects from Europe and further afield for their demonstrations of innovation and excellence. The EAEA Grundtvig Award highlights programme results that produce new ideas, new partnerships, new methodologies and a new understanding of how we can work in adult education.

This year we are searching for programmes and initiatives relating to outreach and access within the world of adult education – if you think this could be you/your organisation please apply now!

Applications are accepted until 10/04/2020.

Outreach and access to learning during the coronavirus pandemic

One question currently unites all educational sectors: how can learning and teaching be organised during the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, and how can marginalised groups be included? Measures to contain the outbreak forced schools, universities, adult education centres and other educational institutions to suspend all face-to-face learning offers. Barriers to learning that have existed for learners from vulnerable groups before the pandemic are reinforced through the rules for “social distancing”, report EAEA members from all over Europe.

Digital learning as a challenge and opportunity

As individuals and families across Europe find themselves “social distancing” or in quarantine at home, many have had to adapt to new ways of working and learning remotely. At the same time, a large number of e-learning offers for children, young people and adults have been advertised in social media. Should we be recognising this time, while strange and scary, as an opportunity for self-improvement, for personal development, for empowerment through e-learning?

How adult education can promote better public health

In such unprecedented times as now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the world calls for new approaches to health and modern medicine. Non-formal adult learning provides an opportunity to create better health practices year-round. Not to mention how adults with a good understanding of their health and their health choices are more likely to follow medical advice closely: something exceptionally important right now to protect us, our families, and our communities.
