EPALE Community Storybook
Epale - 25/04/2022
The EPALE community has contributed in 2021 to the creation of a collective fresco to give voice to adult learning practices from all over Europe. Each of them comes with a different set of knowledge, expertise and personal backgrounds, and enriches every day the community.
These inspirational stories share practices and reflections on adult learning, in a personal way. The stories focus on three main subjects:
- Inclusive Social Change for Sustainability and Fairness
- Digital Transition and the opportunities of blended learning
- Life skills for empowering adults to learn and participate
EPALE put together these inspirational stories to celebrate the vibrant European adult learning community and to give you encouragement and hope. The stories show the courage of people to overcome challenges and move beyond obstacles.
Struggle is a part of every good story, we know that. These stories show how adult educators and adult learning professionals defied doubt, defeated obstacles, and tried to make a difference in their own community and in their learners’ lives.
And that is what this Community Storybook is about: individuals from around Europe sharing their personal stories of inspiration, resilience, and practice.
People often feel that they alone can’t make a difference. Well, the truth is that they can and do. And every success story often involves failure. We learn from those obstacles and failures to get better.
