Grundtvig Award 2022 publication out now

Get to know the innovative projects that applied for the 2022 EAEA Grundtvig Award on transformative learning and values.

Every year, EAEA Grundtvig Award highlights projects demonstrating innovation and excellence in adult learning and education (ALE). The award winners and nominees are presented yearly in a publication, so others can find inspiration from them.

In 2022, the Award called attention to initiatives dedicated to transformative learning and values. We looked for initiatives that fulfill one or more of the following aims:

  • Support a paradigm shift in our understanding of learning towards an idea of critical thinking rather than content-driven knowledge
  • Further the understanding of each person’s role in society and strengthen their advocacy skills
  • Activate networks and partnerships in ALE to support transformative learning opportunities
  • Support initiatives that foster open-ended learning opportunities detached from any labour market orientation
  • Further the potential of ALE providers to offer transformative learning opportunities

Grundtvig Award publication presents the eligible applications of the 2022 call.

Survey reveals that European ALE organisations struggle with access to EU funding opportunities

In a recent survey conducted across adult learning and education (ALE) organisations in Europe in the framework of the Path2EU4AE project, a concerning revelation has emerged: many organisations lack crucial information about various European Union funding programmes available to them. While the Erasmus+ programme is widely known and used in the sector, other funding programmes such as CERV (Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values) and Creative Europe are still largely unknown to many organisations.

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.
