Welcome to EURead

EURead is a network of 34 organisations from 23 European countries, who believe that reading is the key for full participation in today’s media-led society. Each organisation strives for societal impact in their own country, with programmes and projects that fight illiteracy and/or promote reading. As a network they meet regularly to exchange knowledge, experiences and concepts and to jointly raise awareness of the fact that a strong structural framework for reading promotion on a national and European level is absolutely vital. Find out about our work and our members, and how you can join us to achieve our goals.
