The EAEA demands that the European Commission’s decision to move adult learning from DG Education and Culture to DG Employment must not compromise the Commission’s commitment to lifelong learning. “Adult learning is certainly a great way to acquire new skills or upgrade skills for the workplace,” says Gina Ebner, EAEA Secretary General. “However, adult education has a much broader scope that goes beyond the labour market: it covers personal development, learning for seniors, civic learning and active citizenship, cultural and artistic expression and much more.” You can find the whole media release on their website.
