Adult education in Europe – A Civil Society View
On a daily basis, EAEA monitors proceedings on the general European level, and advocates for the importance of adult education. Annually, EAEA launches a survey for its members to create specific country reports for various European countries. By asking our members and other adult education providers to answer a range of questions on the state of adult education in their country, we want to create accessible overviews that will help us to connect with one another, learn from each other and ultimately provide new insights and information to be used in advocacy work, on all levels.
The country specific information on adult education policy offers opportunities to influence the European Semester, the cycle of yearly economic and structural policy coordination from the European Commission.
The publications up to 2019 are available as an electronic version (PDF) and as a hard copy at EAEA Secretariat in Brussels. From 2020 onwards the country reports are published only in digital format on a dedicated website https://eaea.countryreport.org.
With the publication you can:
- Inform your colleagues across Europe – but also policy makers at different levels – on what you think about the main developments in adult education in your country;
- Compare your situation with other organisations in Europe;
- Propose ideas and good practices to colleagues and policy-makers across Europe;
- Additionally, in a few years a more long-term comparison of developments will be possible.
