EAEA & dvv international workshop: "Adult education and the post-2015 process"

Time:30.01.2015 - 30.01.2015
Location:Brussels, Belgium

EAEA and DVV International invite you to a workshop on adult education and development on 30 January 2015. At the meeting, we will discuss non-formal and informal adult education in the context of the post-2015 agenda. 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' will serve as a basis for discussion. Together with colleagues from CONCORD Europe, we will take a closer look at the European Year for Development 2015 and the activities of civil society. With DG DEVCO, European Commission, we will discuss the EU strategies on adult education and development in the post-2015 process.

Please find the preliminary agenda of our workshop here.

The workshop will serve 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.

Please register by 26 January 2015 by sending an e-mail to Raffaela Kihrer (EAEA).
