Literacy changes lives - ELINET video

Language: EN

Posted by Zoltan Varkonyi

This is a short video about literacy challenges in Europe and calls for joining forces to raise awareness on literacy problems and their impacts in the social life and work place. The video was made by ELINET (European Literacy Policy Network).

Most people assume Europe is fully literate, and that low literacy is an issue confined to third-world regions, yet, as demonstrated in the EU report “One in five European 15-year-olds and almost one in five adults lack the literacy skills required to successfully function in a modern society”.
