Processes and strategies of adult education are at the centre of reflection proposed in the articles (researches and practices) collected in this fifth issue of the magazine "EPALE Journal on Adult Learning and Continuing Education".

Reflecting on the meaning of education in adulthood means looking after places, actions, subjects and citizenship practices. The editors Vanna Boffo and Laura Formenti write in the editorial:

"We asked ourselves where and how the training for adults was declined, with adults, beyond adulthood, that training that dressing itself in everyday life allowed women and men to become, to change, to transform themselves. Here, precisely, the transformation, the change, the process of becoming other than that which each one perceives in departure. Each process changes the human form of those who live and create it. It was precisely transforming and transforming, changing and the becoming that we were interested in capturing, albeit in a photograph, as a lens that stops the image. "

The previous issues, all available also on the Epale Journal web page, touched on the topics of skills and practical declination of knowledge (Epale Journal N.1), education in prison (Epale Journal N. 2) and entrepreneurship as competence (Epale Journal N. 3) alongside entrepreneurship (Epale Journal No. 4) fully related to learning.
