2021 EAAL forums: expanding our horizons and weaving alliances
With the forums on the future of adult education, we have linked education with different social processes. We present you the final three forums.
During the process of implementing the European Agenda for Adult Learning in Slovenia (EAAL Project), we planned six forums in the period 2020–2021. We aligned them with the socio-economic challenges first presented at a prominent event of the European Commission – Forum on the Future of Learning (2019, Brussels).
At the EAAL forums, we intended to examine the role of adult education and lifelong learning in each of the listed trends and processes. Due to COVID-19, we were forced to postpone all events to 2021, which meant a considerable organisational issue. On the other hand, some advantages have emerged. We were establishing partnerships to a greater extent, shared burdens and thus broadened content and perspectives. We have hosted many high-profile speakers and learned about many examples of good practice. We invited an expert, usually a social scientist, to each forum, to reflect on the concrete challenge and, within it, on learning and education, from a humanistic perspective in the concluding part, points out Zvonka Pangerc Pahernik of the SIAE.
