EAEA and DVV International invite you to a workshop on adult education and development on 30 January 2015. At the meeting, non-formal and informal adult education in the context of the post-2015 agenda was discussed. Lifelong learning is a key for achieving social change and reducing poverty levels around the world and needs to be recognised not only as a goal, but also as a means of development.
A presentation by Prof. Timothy Ireland (University of Paraíba, Brazil) on 'Development and Education in the post-2015 Agenda' served as a basis for discussion. Together with colleagues from CONCORD Europe, a closer look at the European Year for Development 2015 and the activities of civil society was taken. With DG DEVCO, European Commission, the EU strategies on adult education and development in the post-2015 process were discussed.
The workshop served as a platform for exchange of experience and expertise in order to create a strategy plan for adult education and development in the post-2015 agenda.
