[Publication] [Details/ Print version]

The traditional nation-state context of adult education research and practice is challenged by the consequences of globalization. Beside increased mobility and interaction across different borders, they include financial and economic, social and environmental crises at a global scale. The authors in this book discuss the transforming planetary condition of adult education from different perspectives: education policy, work life, learners and mobilization for sustainability. Although the contributions were initiated in the Nordic conference for adult education and learning in 2015, the contexts of discussion range from Europe to Asia, Latin-America and Africa.
