EPALE, the ePlatform for Adult Learning in Europe, was officially launched in Brussels on 15 April 2015.  The Launch Conference outlined not only why EPALE is important in facilitating online collaboration across Europe but also how the platform can meet the needs of adult learning professionals. Keynote speakers at the Launch included Alan Tuckett, President of the International Council for Adult Education, who urged adult educators to “change the hearts and the minds of our policy makers” by influencing policy through the platform.

If you are an adult educator or involved in a professional role in adult learning you can register on the site to connect with adult educators across Europe and share best practice in the field of adult learning.
