EAEA General Assembly and Annual Conference Themes

Day 1: EAEA General Assembly

European Education Area: only one year to go!

The European Education Area set out ambitious objectives, aiming at achieving universal access in the EU to quality education and training by 2025. What’s the state of the art of adult learning policy in our countries as of 2024?

Under pressure: (new) roles of adult educators

Day 2: EAEA Annual Conference

Creative tools for advocacy and social change in the context of migration

How are migrants portrayed in the media? How are migrant adult learners portrayed within your communities? This interactive workshop will allow us to explore and experiment to understand advocacy for social change and how we change narratives.

Communities as catalysts for social transformation and green transition

What can adult educators learn from sustainable communities? Join us in the workshop for some participatory, heart-felt and fun experiences and practices for community building, engagement and capacity in navigating transformation processes.

What can adult learning organisations do to encourage learner-led approaches? Join the workshop to get to know the existing practices in Europe and to reflect on the approaches that would work in your own context. This workshop is supported by the Erasmus+ project ENHANCE.
