Dear EPALE colleagues,
Between 25–29 April EPALE organised Migrant Education Week to raise awareness about the vital role of adult education in integrating migrants and refugees across Europe. Teachers and researchers across Europe have given their views in blog posts and articles with content available in multiple languages. EPALE also held an open three-day written discussion where experts, practitioners and people interested in the topic shared their views, exchanged best practices and offered solutions to common challenges.
To celebrate World Health Day (7 April) EPALE had a special focus week on health literacy. Click here to learn more.
