ELMAfter the gods Odin, Vili and Vé had created Earth, they roamed its realms, admiring their handiwork. On a  sea shore they came upon two fallen trees - an ash and an elm. The gods imbued these trees with life and a thirst for knowledge, and so the first man and woman came into being. Out of the ash came a man, whereas woman came from the elm. LLinE+InfoNet=Elm   
New beginnings, thirst for knowledge, growth. The themes in the Norse-Germanic creation myth * retold above seem very fitting for this particular moment in the history of LLinE.
At the end of this month LLinE will be replaced by a new media as a result of our merger with the European correspondent network and media InfoNet. This new media is called Elm, the European Lifelong Learning Magazine.

Test issue in September, launch in December

Elm will publish its first theme issue on the 29th on September, on “Adult Education and Social Media”. You will find Elm at but the site is not yet operational as finishing touches are still being added to the site. Visitors to this old LLinE site will also be automatically redirected to the new site. 
The September issue is a test issue - you can give feedback on the reading experience which we will then learn from in preparation of the official launch in December.
