Did you know that approximately 12 people in every street in Europe have literacy difficulties? Most people assume Europe is fully literate, and that low literacy is an issue confined to third-world regions. Literacy clearly needs to move up the European policy agenda! At ELINET, we aim to equip you with the necessary knowledge, tools, and network to do just that. Given the right support, almost anyone who struggles with reading and writing is able to develop adequate literacy skills. Established in February 2014, the European Literacy Policy Network (ELINET) unifies 77 partner organisations from 28 European countries engaged in literacy policy-making and reading promotion in Europe. The project is funded by the European Commission.ELINET strives to improve literacy policies in all member countries, reduce the number of children, young people and adults with low literacy skills in Europe, and help increase reading skills and reading for pleasure. Literacy changes lives!
