An E-book developed with support of the Grundtvig sub-programme (Lifelong Learning Programm) of the European Union. The aim of the project was to advance in and spread the use of strength based change and learning approaches in adult education in Europe in order to foster widespread motivation, initiative, participation and empowerment of adult learners. Therefore we collected best practices within adult education during the conference at the beginning of November 2011 with the theme ‘Awakening within, Awakening without’. After the conference those best practices formed the start of the development of this E-book to be able to share those learning’s with others.
