Dear EPALE colleagues,
In June and July, EPALE had a thematic focus on the benefits and challenges of non-formal and informal learning. During this time, EPALE’s national teams and the community published many inspiring case studies, articles, reports and other resources on the topic. Visit our thematic page Non-formal and informal learning to find out more (content varies based on your language preference).
Don’t forget to visit EPALE regularly for new content! Our thematic focus from August to September will be on social inclusion of vulnerable groups.
