EAEA Grundtvig Award call on digitalisation and democracy

The EAEA Grundtvig Award 2021 aims to raise awareness on the digital transformation of our society and how it impacts adult education. In particular we want to highlight initiatives that promote democracy with the help of digital media and internet.

Each year, the EAEA Grundtvig Award highlights project results that produce new ideas, new partnerships, new methodologies and a new understanding of how we can work in adult education. In 2021 we are looking for initiatives that fulfill one or more of the following aims:

  • Develop strategies to better promote democracy and critical awareness, as well as media literacy as a core competence
  • Close the opportunity gap by transforming how people access and experience digital learning
  • Activate networks and partnerships of public, private and citizen organisations that promote democracy and participation in a digital context
  • Support initiatives that foster political change through education by engaging learners, practitioners and organisations
  • Further the development of the provider’s own mission statement taking into account digitalisation and democracy
