Paulo Reglus Neves Freire is surely one of the most cited and iconic figures in the contemporary education literature. This paper explores his relevance for an age characterised by the intensification of globalisation, and the mobility of capital, in which education is often equated exclusively with the development of the so-called ‘human resources’ (sic). It analyses his pedagogical approach, contrasting it with some of the main features in the dominant policy documents in education such as the EU’s Lisbon objectives.

Community farming is becoming more and more widespread in Hungary now, since there are more and more people who consider it important to have access to food coming from reliable sources. Within the system, farmers and customers make up a community: the customer has access to vegetables, fruit or animal products coming from reliable sources, whereas the farmer may count on predictable and regular income in exchange for the produced goods. In Hungary, the Association of Conscious Consumers plays a central role in the dissemination of information related to the topic and in knowledge transfer. Their project, part of the Erasmus+ strategic partnership launched in 2014, was aimed at providing visibility about the functioning of community farms. Zsófia Perényi, the coordinator of the project, talked to a staff member of the Tempus Public Foundation about tis cooperation and how it relates to the training of adult learners.
