Dear EPALE colleagues,
In August and September EPALE had a thematic focus on the role of adult learning in the social inclusion of vulnerable groups. During this time, EPALE’s national teams and the community published a number of inspiring case studies, articles, reports and other resources on the topic. Visit our thematic page Social inclusion to find them (content varies based on your language preference).
We are pleased to announce that EPALE’s annual pan-European conference is taking place on 1 and 2 October 2019 in Warsaw, Poland. The adult learning event is expected to gather over 250 national government representatives, EPALE members, European stakeholders and representatives from the European Commission.
Don’t forget to visit EPALE regularly for new content! Our thematic focus from October to December will be on adult learning in the workplace.
