This book is a sum-up of a few years of work under the project “Building Key Competences and Folk High School Pedagogy in the 21st Century Europe”, cofinanced by the European Commission Program Erasmus+, and implemented by seven partners from five countries: Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Poland and Switzerland. Thanks to that we could consider the tradition, the present and the future of folk high schools from the perspective of five very different European countries. In the case of the entity coordinating the entire undertaking – Stowarzyszenie Ekologiczno-Kulturalne ZIARNO [Ecological and Cultural Association ZIARNO (GRAIN)] this publication is also gaining experience in implementing Grundtvigian pedagogics/pedagogy in Masovian rural areas, where in 2014–2017 that is during the project, there were (and still are) two-year courses on ecological agriculture delivered by the method of folk high schools.
