In Between Social and Economic: Making Adult Continuous Learning and Education Visible

Adult Learning and Education (ALE) have become profound building blocks of a sustainable future in both local and global contexts. In order to develop social cohesion and economic growth, the development of knowledge, skills, competences and attitudes are fairly necessary to cope with the complexity of how to raise participation and performance in adult learning. The approaches proposed by the UNESCO, the OECD and also that of the EU refer to development of education and training, having to improve lifelong or better put, continuous learning. Adult learning in our understanding heavily depends on high-quality instruments and methods used to enhance education of adults for social integration and inclusion, as well as to access better employment at a time of uncertainties. But what can we do to generate more respect and recognition towards ALE?

This special issue will address some specific topics of adult learning and education of our present time to be able to formulate a sustainable future for ALE:

  • • Participatory matters of adult learning – What roles do stakeholders play in ALE?
  • • Skills/competences development through ALE? What are the skills/competences priorities?
  • • From effectiveness to efficiency in ALE. What resources need to be mobilised for continuous learning in a sustained environment?
  • • Challenges to the New European Agenda for Adult Learning 2030 as policy frame. Are there effective policy tools available?
  • • No one left behind! – Can we realise fair ways of inclusion and equity for resilience in societies?
  • • Roles for adult educators in building learning communities, cities and regions. Can we bridge active citizenship to employment/employabilities?
Therefore, we welcome evidence-based contributions that ground and demonstrate practical implications, reflections upon the topics/ questions addressed above and discuss challenging issues of adult learning environments in formal, non-formal or informal contexts.
