The EPALE thematic focus for September was on the topic of media literacy in adult learning. During this time, EPALE’s national teams and the community published a number of inspiring case studies, articles, reports and other resources.
|We would like to invite you to join EPALE’s live discussion on the types of EU support for adult learning in your country and what EU support is still needed. The discussion will be in English and will take place on this page and comments will be open from 1 to 15 October 2018. The discussion will be moderated by EPALE Thematic Coordinator Simon Broek.
We hope to see you there!
