Dear EPALE colleagues,
In August and September our thematic focus is on the role of adult learning in the social inclusion of vulnerable groups. During this time, EPALE’s national teams and the community will publish 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).
Stay tuned for our online event in the end of September, where we will discuss the challenges and good practices in including different vulnerable groups through adult learning. Don’t miss your chance to share your experience with the EPALE community!
