Books, Bats and Balls: Informal and Non-formal Learning in Libraries and Sports Clubs

Location: Dundalk County Library

Date: 18 June 2019

Times: 10:00-13:00

Throughout June, EPALE (Electronic Platform For Adult Learning) will be focusing on the benefits and challenges of non-formal and informal learning, looking at innovations, new methods and approaches, good practice examples and case studies of successful projects.

The value of informal and non-formal learning can often go unrecognised. However, this approach can make learning more welcoming, enjoyable and accessible for many adult learners. Informal and non-formal learning can be encouraged through a variety of activities and locations. Libraries and sport fields are two examples of locations, which provide important environments for informal and non- formal learning to take place.

EPALE UK and EPALE Ireland would like to invite you to this event to discuss and highlight some of the informal and non-formal learning taking place within the island of Ireland. The event will feature speakers working across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, with opportunities to share experiences and network. It will also be an opportunity to learn more about EPALE and how it can support you in your work.

The event will also explore effective methods of incorporating elements of informal and non-formal learning into projects (for example, how you could add an element of informal or non-formal learning to an Erasmus+ or other project) and how EPALE can help facilitate this.

Registration: The event is free but registration is requested at

This event is hosted by EPALE (Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe), with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
