On this website you can find useful tools for your Adult Learners’ Week or Learning Festival: about how to work together in local partnerships and how to involve learners in the preparation and delivery. You can also find other information about ALW activities in the five partner countries.

This site is and will remain ’under construction’. We will add regularly new information and insights, good practices and agenda information. The main purpose is to exchange information in order to strengthen the Adult Learners’ Week. Your comments are very welcome!



Eight organisations from five countries. All of them well experienced in the Adult Learners' Week and Learning Festivals. All of them with the ambition and passion to make this Week or Festival better through Adult Learners' Week Evaluation ALWE. Between 2007 - 2009, these organisations developed and tested tools to measure and evaluate the impact of activities, especially concerning the cooperation in local partnerships and the active collaboration of learners in the preparation and delivery of the ALW. This website shows the results. This site offers a forum for further development of these and other instruments.

Report: 24 Hours of Learning in Switzerland PDF Print
Wednesday, 13 January 2010 15:11

SVEB invited us (red: AIKE Oy, Finland) to bench mark and evaluate their Adult Learner’s week in Switzerland in September 2009. Switzerland used to have their adult learner’s week (10 days) every three years, but recently they changed that into an event of 24 Hours of Learning. The aim is to have the event every year. The innovative person behind these ideas is Ruth Jermann (Stellvertretende Direktorin, SVEB).
