The academic literature and policy discourses on adult education tend to claim that participation in learning is correlated with happiness despite the lack of strong European comparative empirical evidence on this topic.

This volume provides an in-depth analysis of historical and recent developments of senior learning in Taiwan, where publications in English have been scant. It takes a broader view on lifelong learning and active ageing from a theoretical/conceptual base written by prominent international authors- this represents the ‘outside in’ perspective. The ‘inside out’ on the other hand signifies an in-depth investigation of initiatives written by authors from Taiwan who are closely involved with developments in policy and practice.

Under the motto "vhs 2030: Together in Diversity. Sustainable. Connected", the 15th Adult Education Conference (Volkshochschultag) will address the three major issues of the future that pose new challenges for us politically and socially, and thus also for adult education. For almost two days, more than 800 colleagues from our Adult Education Centres (vhs), international guests, representatives from politics, business and academia, as well as cooperation partners from adult education and other areas of civil society to exchange experiences, will meet in Leipzig to discuss and develop new ideas for the practice of Adult Education.
We are a global alliance of networks, associations and organisations for adult learning and education (ALE). We recognise the fundamental importance of ALE for justice, well-being and change. While Agenda 2030 identifies lifelong learning (LLL) as critical to attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ALE which is a significant part of LLL, is largely invisible. For ALE to be seen, understood and valued, we need to advocate for greater involvement and investment by governments, donors, private sector, international organizations, and social movements.
