Folkbildning, or non-formal adult education, is strong in the Nordic countries. But what is it good for? This report looks at the key competences people need to live in todays' society, and how Folkbildning can help nurture and support them. It also looks at how this can be validated. The report is constructed as a study material, where you can either read the full report, or discuss parts of the report in a study circle. Rather than providing final answers the report looks at some crucial aspects and asks some hard questions.
