Aristotle University of Thessaloniki will held the 6th Biennial Meeting of the ESREA-ReNAdET | 16-18 October 2019
The theme of this year's Biennial meeting is "Adult educators in times of changing cultures: embracing diversity for empowerment and inspiration". The meeting will take place in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (GR), 16-18 October 2019.

The main issue to be addressed in the 6th meeting of ReNAdET is to look into the various levels of diversity in adult education focusing on the role/s of adult educators:

- A first level  concerns the educators- working in formal/non-formal educational structures, with diverse educative patterns and various professional practices.
- A second level of diversity concerns learners- whatever their profiles, low qualified/qualified (but without any official recognition as acquired in a non EU country); starting/ending their professional career; gender diverse, with diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
- A third level is the kind of territories learners and educators are working in sensitive/normal, urban/rural.
The idea is to discuss the kind of support adult educators need in order to provide self-confidence and hope to learners who might feel lost, misunderstood, or even abandoned by the formal learning system. Therefore adult education professionals should be better equipped to meet the demands expressed by learners with fewer opportunities faced by many barriers and obstacles in their transition to the labour market or to their social and professional integration- education, training, employment, through empowerment and inspiration.

The deadline for paper proposals submission is 16 June 2019.
