2014 marks the 100th anniversary of World War I – a war fuelled by xenophobia and economic turmoil, a war which changed Europe drastically and which shaped the fate of our continent in the 20th century and beyond, a war which ended in new dimensions of mass killings and suffering. At a moment when the future and values of a united Europe again face unprecedented challenges, it is a good time to embrace peace and take a moment to reflect on the past, the present and the future. We believe that by creating opportunities for mutual learning, reflection and dialogue, adult education can promote peace and cohesion in Europe.
This year's EAEA Grundtvig Award is linked to the DVV's and EAEA's joint initiative Remembering for the Future. EAEA therefore is proposes to focus on the topics of remembrance and peace for its 2014 Grundtvig Award.

We will award excellent adult education and learning projects with the topic Remembering World War I for the Future - Adult Education promoting peace and cohesion in Europe in two categories:
1. World War I remembrance initiatives
We are looking for a focus on local history during WWI, as well as reflections on the current situation in Europe and beyond, especially tied to the dangers of nationalism and xenophobia. A transnational partnership for the initiative is welcome but not necessary. The activities may include:
2. Adult education projects that promote peace and conflict resolution
While we would like projects in this category to have a link to WWI, this is not a precondition! We are looking for projects from Europe and outside of Europe that draw lessons from war, civil war or armed conflicts using these cases as a tool to promote peace and conflict resolution through adult learning and education.
