“A better world - equal, democratic and just; through adult education the WEA challenges and inspires individuals, communities and society.”
— WEA mission statement, adopted July 2012, London
The WEA creates lasting social change through education, empowering communities to organise for a more democratic, equal and just world. The WEA was instrumental in popularising the concept of the welfare state and full employment, with WEA members going on to pioneer these policies in government.
WEA alumni include former prime ministers John Curtin, Michael Joseph Savage, Sir Walter Nash and Peter Fraser; numerous British cabinet ministers and MPs including Keir Hardie, Hugh Gaitskell and Arthur Greenwood; and other public figures such as G. D. H. Cole and William Temple.
We continue this work today, with campaigns on issues such as economic justice and workers' rights, equality for women, environmental protection and international solidarity.
However, we receive no government funding for most of our work. We don't receive donations from rich benefactors or big business.
We're entirely reliant on donations from people like you, and we need your help now.
A global commitment
