1st Call for proposals: Interrogating Sustainability in Adult Learning Policy: European and Global Perspectives


The ESREA Network in Policy Studies on Adult Education is happy to announce its II Conference: Interrogating Sustainability in Adult Learning Policy: European and Global Perspectives. The Conference will be hosted at Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark on 18-20 June 2014. The 1st Call for proposals is featured below and attached.

Improved learning opportunities for adults are urgently needed – opportunities, for both young and mature adults, which strengthen their capacity to meet the challenges of life in today’s world of possibility and risk. Recent social and economic crises, as well as climate change and biodiversity, underline the urgent need for sustainability in societies and lifestyles – and for adult learning policies and institutions that can contribute to this.

The 2014 ESREA Policy Studies conference will interrogate the political aims and achievements of sustainability in adult learning. It draws inspiration from the UNESCO declaration on Education for Sustainable Development (2009): how can its emphasis on participatory, critical teaching and learning methods which can motivate and empower learners to change their behaviour, and take action, for sustainable development be incorporated in policies – in Europe and the world? Social and economic crises have shown the fragility of existing institutions and policies. The development of sustainable policies and practices for adult and lifelong education has become vital.
