For a ‘green’ and socially inclusive Erasmus+ programme

The plans for a Green Deal of the European Union were set out in the Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, The European Council, The Council, The European Economic and Social Committee and The Committee of the Regions from December 2019. All European programmes – including the Erasmus+ programme – will support the agenda through a number of measures. The European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) welcomes the draft report of the European Parliament on effective measures to ‘green’ Erasmus+, Creative Europe and the European Solidarity Corps and calls for a green Erasmus+ programme that puts social inclusion at the forefront.

Non-formal adult learning contributes to active citizenship, social cohesion and the sustainable development of the environment, economy, but also communities and society at large by promoting a wide range of skills and competences. The Erasmus+ programme is fundamental to supporting innovation and cooperation in the adult education sector, particularly in regions and countries where adult education structures are not strongly developed, by fostering transnational exchange of experience and expertise.

Life skills – including ‘green skills’ and environmental capabilities and competences for a more sustainable lifestyle – are at the heart of EAEA’s approach. EAEA has, for many years, been actively promoting the global development goals, from the Millennium Development Goals to the Sustainable Development Goals and the European Agenda 2030.

In a new statement, EAEA highlights five points:

  • Boost citizens’ environmental skills while ensuring social inclusion as a priority
  • Use the potential of digital technology for meetings and events
  • Provide additional support to leave no-one behind
  • Create synergies with other programmes
  • Avoid administrative burdens

Digital information path for EU funding available now

A new online tool enables adult learning and education organisations and providers to find EU project funding instruments that are relevant to their needs and meet the operational capacity of the organisations. The tool was developed in the framework of the Erasmus+funded small-scale partnership Path2EU4AE, coordinated by CONEDU and implemented in partnership with EAEA, Auxilium, and Maribor adult education centre.
