Dear EPALE colleagues,
From March to May, our thematic focus is on citizenship education and we are exploring the importance of citizenship education for building a responsible society and teaching adults how to be more critically aware of trends in society.
Don’t forget to visit EPALE regularly for new content on citizenship education from March to May!
Between 25-28 February, EPALE organised an online event for collecting good practice examples from digital adult learning. We had various contributions from a wide range of adult learning professionals from over 20 European countries. We thank everyone for sharing their invaluable contributions with the EPALE community!
