Economic, socio-economic or political-economic education for adults is rarely provided in Europe. At most, such education is provided by a small number of universities, trade unions, NGOs etc. However, for children and school students, on the other hand, there are a wide range of educational offerings on the economy and financial literacy. They may provide inspiration for those who wish to do similiar educational work with adults. Please find below an incomplete list of adult education providers which include questions of economy in their programmes.
