Impacting policy

EAEA impacts EU policies on non-formal adult education and lifelong learning and cooperates with the institutions of the European Union as well as civil society organisations and other stakeholders at the international, European, EU and national level.

Personal meetings with policy-makers and stakeholders, statements, and responses to surveys and consultations are at the core of our activities to make an impact.

EAEA also organises events with and for EU institutions as well as represents civil society in the field of adult education and its perspective at conferences and working groups. EAEA is currently a member of the ET2020 working groups on adult learning and on citizenship education.

Our Manifesto for Adult Learning in the 21st Century gives an overview of the topics that we are working on and the values that are important to us. Get to know our work:
