2014 marks the 100th anniversary of World War I – a war fuelled by xenophobia and economic turmoil, a war which changed Europe drastically and which shaped the fate of our continent in the 20th century and beyond, a war which ended in new dimensions of mass killings and suffering. At a moment when the future and values of a united Europe again face unprecedented challenges, it is a good time to embrace peace and take a moment to reflect on the past, the present and the future. We believe that by creating opportunities for mutual learning, reflection and dialogue, adult education can promote peace and cohesion in Europe.
This year's EAEA Grundtvig Award is linked to the DVV's and EAEA's joint initiative Remembering for the Future. EAEA therefore proposes to focus on the topics of remembrance and peace for its 2014 Grundtvig Award.
More information on this year's Grundtvig Award and about the award in general can be found on this factsheet.
