MEDIA RELEASE. EAEA has awarded adult education projects in its annual EAEA Grundtvig Awards. This year’s award celebrated cooperations and partnerships in adult education.
Adult education is tackling many of Europe’s most pressing challenges, yet the funding allocated to adult education in the future EU budget and the name change of the EU’s education programme signal a failure to recognise its importance. EAEA calls for a higher budget share and a clear commitment to adult education to meet the EU objectives and to make an impact.
The latest meeting of the Interest Group on Lifelong Learning brought together Members of the European Parliament, representatives of the European Commission, civil society organisations and other stakeholders to discuss the concept of learning environments in formal, non-formal and informal learning settings.
While the European Commission’s latest plans to further the European Education Area underline the commitment to lifelong learning, the measures proposed are not embedded in a holistic lifelong learning approach. EAEA’s Reaction to the Second Package of the European Education Area calls for a stronger consideration of all age groups and stages of learning.
