The power of imagination in adult learning. EPALE Community Conference 2022

On 18, 19 and 20 October 2022, EPALE will host its community’s annual online conference entitled “Imagine. Enriching, sustainable, inclusive Europe”.

Imagining means rethinking the present, unlocking new possibilities and creating new futures. Taking this thought as a guiding thread and starting point, the EPALE conference aims to highlight the power of imagination and adult learning in shaping an enriching, sustainable and inclusive Europe.

The conference revolves around four themes:

  • Learning community
  • Young adults
  • Innovative approaches to the skills revolution
  • Creativity and culture for social cohesion

Each thematic plenary session will be followed by an interactive workshop with limited places (to participate it is necessary to register for the sessions of interest).

The three days will alternate keynote speeches, round tables and workshops involving experts from all over Europe.

For Italy we point out the report by Giovanni E. Corazza (University of Bologna) “Out of the box. Slow thinking for creativity “and the speech by Marcella Milana (University of Verona) on the European approach to individual learning accounts and micro credentials (read the interview).

Furthermore Laura Ferro (National Diary Archive) will speak at the round table on Education, community and memory, and Micaela Casalboni (Teatro dell’Argine) will bring the example of non-formal education with the arts, among the practices based on the community approach to empowerment.
