"Learning and Living in Diverse Communities" was the theme of the conference that took place in the House of Civic Communities in the city of Pécs, Hungary, in June 2019. It was the 11th conference which the specialized network on “Between Global and Local – Adult Learning and Communities” of the European Society on the Research for the Education of Adults (ESREA) has been organizing ever since 2006.
We are delighted to invite you to attend our first ever virtual Informal Literacy Discussion, which we are privileged to be hosting in partnership with the UNESCO Chair in Adult Literacy and Learning for Social Transformation at the University of East Anglia, UK on 6th May at 12 noon BST.
During these difficult and unprecedented times of social distancing, isolation, and lockdown, many of us are realising the core tenet of social psychology- that humans need to belong to groups, to feel a sense of connection to humans around us, and to share a sense of identity and purpose.
The Coronavirus, Capitalism and Inequality webinar series continues with a webinar about women from the global south on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis. We hope you can join us on Thursday 23 April at 1pm to hear and put your questions to our speakers from the Philippines and South Africa.
Members, supporters, friends, how to make COVID-19 an opportunity?
We are very pleased to announce a new award to the University of Glasgow within the British Academy’s GCRF Education and Learning in Crises Programme.

The value of the award is £357,915.
These case studies are diverse in style, length and content. They approach this significant subject from different contexts and directions. They are presented here in the authors’ own words and ways of seeing, edited only for ease of reading and understanding.
Together they make a valuable contribution to a theme increasingly important for the evolution and effective development of adults’ and communities’ learning in a time of rapid and disruptive change. Their diversity may make it harder for governments and lobbyists at different levels to say what should be done there.
However, they pose essential questions about what study circles mean to different countries, how they are evolving, and the different kinds of utility that they offer There is no doubt that we are moving deeper and faster into a certain global crisis that has implications for all as it is a time where globalisation, digitalisation, migration and demographic change are moving and shaking our people and societies.
What roles are there for study circles, for community learning centres, for learning cities and regions – all trying to get close to lifelong learning and related policies, strategies or even systems in this context? Where are we with this discussion in the arena and agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), especially when we do want to contribute to more than to goal four as quality education?
These cases and their review show also that study circles may be helpful to be a viable source for the much needed debates on all the seventeen goals in a meaningful and participatory way by the people themselves.short url link | Autres
