The following report is based on a survey sent to EAEA’s members, asking them about the state of adult education in their country. The views expressed come from a variety of contexts. EAEA members are often umbrella organisations representing their country’s adult education providers, and can have the status of a non-governmental organisation representing providers to the national or regional government. The focus of work may be on research in adult education, or more oriented towards policy advocacy. Some members work on a local level as adult educators, and their work may focus on a particular sub-area of adult education such as basic skills provision or vocational training. Through the survey, these national, regional or local organisations share the knowledge they have gathered A specific characteristic of the survey conducted this year was asking our members about the impact different EU and international policies and strategies have on their work, in particular the EU’s European Agenda for Adult Learning (2011) 1 and Upskilling Pathways (2016)2 , as well as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (2015)3 and particularly Goal 4, “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”. Many EAEA members highlight various initiatives to implement the European Agenda in their country, be it at the national level or by civil society organisations. about the state of adult education in their country throughout their own work within this field. In addition to this insight gathered over time, they could also consult providers within their network and reflect their views in the survey responses. In some countries the report is based on the account of one EAEA member; the national representativeness of the views expressed may thus vary depending on the geographic reach of each participating organisation within their country, the level on which they mainly operate (as national institutions, NGO umbrella organisations, regional or local providers), and the extent of consultation they conducted before responding to the survey. A list of contributors is included at the end of the report.
