    Goals / Remit

    EAEA is a transnational, non-profit association whose purpose is to link and represent European organisations which are directly involved in adult learning. Originally known as the European Bureau of Adult Education, it was founded in 1953 by representatives from a number of European countries.

    to promote the development of adult learning
    to encourage co-operation in adult learning at European level
    to lobby international bodies so that they adopt plans and policies which respond to the needs of the adult population in Europe
    to make it easier for NGOs to work together and play an active role in the international scene
    EAEA published the following positions in order to comment on the respective policy developments:
    - EAEA Policy Paper: Learning and Skills for Adults in Europe
    - EAEA Response to the European Pillar of Social Rights
    - EAEA statement: EAEA welcomes the Skills Agenda – a huge opportunity for Europe
    - EAEA statement: The new resolution o (...)

    Main EU files targeted

    EAEA monitors major EU policies and initiatives in the field of ALE. In 2022, EAEA will put a specific focus on the implementation of the new European Agenda for Adult Learning, a flagship policy framework for EAEA members. EAEA will also continue reviewing the implementation of Upskilling Pathways, and will closely policy developments in the area of ALE and green transition, microcredentials and Individual Learning Accounts. EAEA will publish policy statements highlighting a civil society perspective, based on consultations with members. Members will also be regularly informed of EU policy developments through regular communication and easy to understand infographics.

    Another key aspect of our work is involving our members and other AE providers in cross-sectorial, cross-national and cross-organisational peer learning and exchange of know-how and practice. This will lead to strengthening adult learning and education in Europe and enable more people in Europe to participate, especially people with low basic skills and people from disadvantaged groups.

    In terms of cooperation, we will continue our work with the European institutions as a critical friend and with our civil society platforms to boost our exchange of expertise and influence. EAEA continues broaden its cooperations in order to become even more effective. For the next three years, we want to strengthen our collaboration with social partners, other sectors and more EU institutions. This will help us be more effective and have more impact in the world of work and at the regional level. We also plan to cooperate more with research to reinforce our evidence base.
