Annual Adult Education Conference
The Annual Adult Education Conference is a regular meeting of policy makers and professionals in the theory and practice of adult education.
Presentation of current topics, participation in implementation of these topics, professional exchanges, collections of suggestions and proposals of adult education stakeholders.
This event offers an opportunity to evaluate the activities and goals reached in the previous year. The aim of the conference is also to spread information and encourage discussion of challenges and orientation that will influence the activities in adult education in the future. The event is also an opportunity for creation of non-formal connections with professionals from all across Slovenia and from all fields, strengthening our joint commitment to development of adult education in Slovenia.
