“I look forward to working with the new board and the staff of EAEA on strengthening the recognition for adult learning and education. I strongly believe that it’s the main instrument to equip European citizens to become actively involved in shaping the transformations ahead.

EAEA is looking forward to working with the new board! We also want to express our warmest thank you for candidates who expressed interest in the board membership, and the outgoing board members.

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.
