EAEA - European Association for the Education of Adults

The European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) is the voice of non-formal adult education in Europe.

EAEA is a transnational, non-profit association whose purpose is to link and represent European organisations which are directly involved in adult learning. Its primary focus is NGOs whose principal aim is the education of adults. EAEA also works where possible through national co-ordinating bodies for adult learning. Originally known as the European Bureau of Adult Education, EAEA was founded in 1953 by representatives from a number of European countries.

EAEA promotes adult learning and the widening of access and participation in formal, non-formal and informal adult education for all, particularly for groups currently under-represented. The purposes of learning may be for personal fulfilment; social change; active citizenship; environmental sustainability; cultural and intercultural awareness and knowledge; skills development and in employment related fields.
