Promoters of adult education in Estonia gained international recognition

28. June 2018 - 10:26

The European Association for the Education of Adults recognised the Association of Estonian Adult Educators Andras for the best national project at the Grundtvig Award competition. Estonia received the award for developing the adult education network and organising the Adult Learners’ Week. Long and reliable cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Research and many other partners were the cornerstones of their success.

The competition recognises and values innovation, cooperation and quality in adult education - the best national, international and European projects were rewarded for the 15th time already. This year’s award for the best international project went to the adult education organisation DVV International from Laos and the award for the best European project to the Italian association Agrado. Winners were selected from amongst 30 nominees.

The main objective of the European Association for the Education of Adults that brings together 123 members from 42 countries is to intensify international cooperation and share experience for the purpose of finding new ways to promote adult education. The members of the Association founded in 1953 include non-profit associations, education authorities, institutes and adult education divisions of universities.
