EPALE Community Conference 2021
On 12 and 13 October 2021, EPALE is hosting its annual Community Conference, which will be held entirely online. The conference will provide an opportunity to discuss how adult education and learning can help reshape our society, promoting inclusive and sustainable models.
The pandemic has exposed and exacerbated vulnerabilities in our globalised and interconnected world, with profound and long-lasting effects. Fast-paced changes on multiple levels – digital, demographic, and environmental – have been the norm in recent times. In this context, the conference revolves around the concept of transition. Transitions are full of uncertainty and instability, but being inherently transformative, they also provide an extraordinary opportunity to sketch out new models, paying particular attention to the challenge of not leaving anyone behind.
The conference’s plenary sessions (public events available to view via the EPALE platform) will be split across two days.
But the conference doesn't end here!
Far from it! The following week, on the 18 and 19 October, the conference will continue, opening the stage for collaborative discussions. Participants will have the opportunity to have their say, taking part in four participatory workshops to be attended upon registration.
The EPALE Community Conference will also host 8 national panels to allow participants to deepen and discuss national priorities and practices… in national languages.
The full agenda will be available soon on this page.
Please take note
The keynote speeches and panel discussions will be public and available to view via the EPALE platform.
Workshops will be accessible only after registration as participants are limited. Workshops are open only to EPALE users, therefore you need to be logged-in to the website before registering. If you're not an EPALE user, create your EPALE account here.
National panels have different access modes, so check the ones you are interested in for more information.
