Applications are open for the 2022 Grundtvig Award

Hurray! Our call for applicants for the 2022 Grundtvig Award is now live. This year we are searching for programmes and initiatives dedicated to transformative learning and values in adult education and learning.

Since 2003, EAEA is recognizing adult education projects inside and outside Europe demonstrating innovation and excellence in adult education. The Grundtvig Award highlights projects producing new and innovative ideas, partnerships, methodologies and a understanding of how we can work with adult learners.

We have chosen Transformative Learning and Values as our annual theme, because we want to use global challenges for a positive change. In 2022 we are looking for initiatives that fulfill one or more of the following aims:

  • Support a paradigm shift in our understanding of learning towards an idea of critical thinking rather than content-driven knowledge
  • Further the understanding of each person’s role in society and strengthen their advocacy skills
  • Activate networks and partnerships in ALE to support transformative learning opportunities
  • Support initiatives that foster open-ended learning opportunities detached from any labour market orientation
  • Further the potential of ALE providers to offer transformative learning opportunities

Application deadline is the 31st of March. Read more about the Grundtvig Award call 2022!

Upskilling Pathways needs to put learners at the centre

The European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) welcomes the European Commission’s Public Consultation on Upskilling Pathways. Adopted by the European Council in December 2016, the Upskilling Pathways strategy presents an ambitious skills strategy that has enabled adults in Europe with low(er) basic skills, according to policy targets, to have their skills assessed, receive tailored learning provision and have their learning outcomes validated. EAEA has collected feedback from its members on the state of the implementation and the impact of the strategy.
