The redesigned EPALE online platform is enriched with a few novelties: Erasmus+, My EPALE, the new EPALE Community Stories 2021 initiative, new opportunities for collaboration and much more. The new Erasmus+ programme already began. The first promotional activities for our contractors have already been carried out, and the first tender submission deadlines are over. We look forward to new projects and their outcomes. We are convinced that their results will also contribute to the development of ALE in Slovenia and beyond, as was the case in the previous programming period. Let us mention just a few blogs that are the result of Erasmus+ projects. They were prepared in collaboration with adult education providers from Slovenia and are available in English: Lego® bricks as a tool for empowerment | EPALE (, The six key competencies for life learning in later life and active ageing | EPALE ( We want to highlight a recent EPALE interview: Dušana Findeisen and the digitisation and digitalisation of education for older people | EPALE ( Dušana has worked in the field of education for older people and intergenerational learning and education for local development in many European countries since 1984. For decades, she has been involved in many European Leonardo da Vinci, Grundtvig and Erasmus+ projects related to education for the elderly, and she learned a lot from all the Erasmus+ projects. We also invite you to read the EPALE Community Story from Slovenia: Darja Kušar, a Community Story from Slovenia | EPALE (
