Interrogating Sustainability in Adult Learning Policy

 

 
The Second Conference of the European Society of Research on the Education of Adults (ESREA) Network on Policy Studies in Adult Education entitled, Interrogating Sustainability in Adult Learning Policy: European and Global Perspectives took place from 18 to 20 June 2014 at the University of Aalborg in Denmark. Around 50 participants, predominantly university professors and researchers from Europe and other regions gathered to analyse how sustainability is – and could be – integrated into policies for adult learning. UIL contributed to a panel on literacy with a presentation by Ulrike Hanemann, highlighting key findings of the second Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (GRALE 2), and to a paper session with a presentation by Chripa Schneller on the Impact on Distance Education on Adult Learning (IDEAL) project. Both presentations were well received by the conference participants. The European Society of Research on the Education of Adults (ESREA) Network on Policy Studies in Adult Education is one of the 12 active networks of ESREA and is holding a conference every two years since 2012. The conference proceedings and papers will be published and all information will be available on http://www.esrea2014.learning.aau.dk.
