Learn for Life
Since 2012 are we the national coordinator of the Dutch Adult Learning Festival. Annually we award an International Prize to a Dutch organization that uses its own expertise in innovative projects in adult education at an international level. And annually we honor Outstanding Learners and Outstanding Teachers. We exchange and share knowledge about learning campaigns with European partners.
In 2011 the Rural Academy was founded as an umbrella organization under which Learn for Life, together with other partners, develops activities in the field of rural development and education. At European level this concerns particularly learning partnerships and workshops & training. At national level, we organized several expert meetings, workshops and training sessions. Special topics in this field: rural development and intergenerational learning, vital villages for an inclusive and sustainable rural area, community houses and education, housing and care in the rural area, Study Circles Sustainability.
Round Table Discussions
Learn for Life took the initiative to a platform aiming at the exchange and discussion on the implementation of non-formal and formal educational activities. Participants in this platform come from research institutes, universities and educational institutes. In round table discussion we discuss the current issues professionals and volunteers encounter in organizing and/or supervising adult learning. This involves both methodological and quality issues as well as political and policy implications in this area.
Active Citizenship and Participation
Through several European and national projects, the organization is involved in defining competences in the field of education and active citizenship, targeting professionals, volunteers and adults in general. In this context, we are also concerned with basic skills and training of these skills.
