What was it?

Adult Learner's Week has been celebrated in Norway since 1998. It is an activity that takes place on the national level. The latest edition took place in October 2012. A national conference was organized to target policy-makers.

Now we are discussing alternative strategies for opinion building and policy work.

The organization worked with the local and regional medias.

With the Adult Learner´s Week, the Norwegian Association for Adult Learning raised awareness on the importance of adult learning and education amongst politicians and opinion builders etc. The concept of Adult Learner's Week/conference was the key elements of the awareness raising activity.
