EAEA General Assembly and Annual Conference

This year the EAEA General Assembly, Grundtvig Award Ceremony and Annual Conference will be kindly hosted by EAEA Ordinary Member ACEFIR in Girona, Spain. The registrations are now open – join us for two days of discussions and workshops about how to successfully engage new learners!

During the EAEA General Assembly on 27 June, EAEA members from across Europe will not only discuss statutory business and vote in the elections of the board, but they will also participate in interactive workshops on Upskilling Pathways, adult education and development and a number of other topics that our members have indicated as important in their everyday work.

The General Assembly will be followed by the Grundtvig Award Ceremony. This year, EAEA will award projects and intiatives that successfully engage new learners. The three winners will receive a scaled reproduction of a well-known sculpture in Girona and will be asked to actively contribute to the workshops at the Annual Conference. The Jury have already chosen the winners – you will find out who they are at the Ceremony!

The Annual Conference on 28 June will be fully devoted to the topic of engaging new learners. During interactive workshops, we will look at how adult education professionals could encourage new learners to participate in adult education according to different target groups (low-skilled adults, migrants, SMEs and young adults) and reflect on what opportunities Upskilling Pathways might bring. We will also listen to an inspring story of an adult learner.

Organisations that are working on engaging new learners can promote their activities at the marketplace – book a stand until 27 May by sending an email to
