EPALE's thematic focus for May is on migrant education
Adult learning is an essential part of the integration of migrants and refugees. It is often the first step towards becoming part of a new country, culture and community. Helping migrants speak the local language and acquire the necessary skills for their new careers is vital for their entry into the job market. Adult learning can also help equip locals with intercultural awareness and competences, easing the integration process for everyone involved.
Here at EPALE we believe that adult learning can not only help migrants to adapt to their new environment, but it can also be a solution to religious and cultural hatred. Check out EPALE’s thematic page for migrant education where the community and the national teams have gathered interesting articles, useful resources and case studies on the topic (content varies based on your language preference). Visit EPALE regularly for new content in May!
We would like to invite you to join EPALE’s live discussion on the role and challenges of adult learning in helping migrants to integrate in their host country, and how it can foster tolerance and cultural understanding. The discussion will be in English and will take place on this page on 31 May 2018. It will be moderated by EPALE Thematic Coordinator Gina Ebner.
We hope to see you there!
