European Education Alliance

An open platform promoting Education in All Policies at European level

What is the European Education Alliance (EEA)?

A platform through which members of the European Parliament can co-create, along with educators, learners, educational actors, NGOs, companies, innovators, students or parents across Europe, education policies for a more inclusive European society designed to enable us to deal with the digital and green transformations.

The European Education Alliance is a pilot initiative for open dialogue between policy makers and citizens across the European Union, through which we can debate, deliberate and create better policies for the education systems. The EEA is an open space for sharing ideas, through which the representatives of the civil society can promote their policy agendas and get involved in the European legislative processes.

This project aims to create a strong, cooperative European alliance through which civil society leaders and European decision-makers can work together for a quality inclusive education across the European Union. Our goal is to organize debates with the major European educational platforms, in order to understand the lessons of the past months and to plan for the challenges ahead, so as to make online learning a valuable component of the education process , evaluate the possibility of increased integration of education and research but also to generate an impact in terms of questions that are being raised at EU level, own initiative reports or pilot projects focused on education.

We call upon all political, community, and business leaders, at the European and national level alike, to rise to this most essential challenge: Education in Europe can become the instrument of change for the better, only if more of us stand up for its needs.

We want to debate, deliberate and co-create policies on topics such as:
