At EPALE, we are already used to the thematic focuses that were characteristic for part of the year in the past; however, this year we will focus on three main themes throughout the year. They are very broad in content and cover key aspects of all areas of education, including ALE.

In 2021, you will be invited to share your opinion, discuss, and find ideas for your further work and professional development on:

  • Life and work skills for empowering adults to learn and participate;
  • Digital transition and the opportunities of blended learning;
  • Inclusive social change for sustainability and fairness.

You can read more about the thematic focuses at this link.
