The forum "Learning to become: change-oriented education in a world in transformation" is dedicated to the challenges adult education is facing in the context of complex changes in the world: The impact of digitalization and climate change, shifts in global architecture with new emerging powers, and widening social and economic gaps within societies and between regions are creating new realities. Europe is facing a growing number of migrants in a situation where democratic rules are being challenged in many countries and demographic change towards an aging society is gaining momentum. Many people are frightened, feel lost and react by following populist movements that promise easy solutions.
This forms the background of a global debate on the redefinition of education, which is expected to equip citizens with skills that enable them to actively participate in the process of change. What new concepts are being put forward here? How can adult education ensure that social cohesion is strengthened and that no one is left behind? How can values of solidarity be communicated locally, on the European and global level?
