EAEA has launched a campaign for the continuation of the European Agenda for Adult Learning.

Finnish Lifelong Learning Foundation (KVS)

My name is Jana and I am delighted to start working as the new Policy Assistant at EAEA. I am currently pursuing an Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Education Policies for Global Development, co-convened between Barcelona, Glasgow and Cyprus. Exploring non-formal adult education in different fields in the past has strengthened my commitment to social justice and the conviction that adult education is crucial for social change. From a research perspective, I am passionate about democratic and civic adult education and sustainability related life-long-learning policies, such as green skills and resilience building.

EAEA inspired me as a multicultural NGO with dedicated members envisioning European life-long-learning futures and as an actor that advocates for civil society and aims at influencing EU policy. In the upcoming months, I will research how existing adult education policies in Europe are realized in the particular national contexts, support webinars and other online events. Alongside, I hope to further investigate the role of green skills on the EU policy agenda and learn from the team at EAEA.
