Each year, the European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) celebrates innovation and excellence in adult education. The EAEA Grundtvig Award highlights project results that produce new ideas, new partnerships, new methodologies and a new understanding how we can work in adult learning.
In 2014, EAEA was looking for excellent projects and initiatives from Europe that tackle WWI remembrance and that draw lessons from armed conflicts like WWI in order to promote peace and conflict resolution. Projects were submitted in two categories: "World War I remembrance initiatives" and "Adult education projects that promote peace and conflict resolution".
2014 marked the 100th anniversary of World War I – a war which changed Europe drastically and shaped the fate of our continent in the 20th century and beyond. EAEA believes that by creating opportunities for mutual learning, reflection and dialogue, adult education can promote peace and cohesion in Europe.
The publication presents the 21 contestant projects of the EAEA Grundtvig Award 2014.
