Under the title “1914-2014 - Remembering the past to live the present and shape the future”, DVV International published issue 72 of the series International Perspectives in Adult Education (IPE).
This English language issue emerged as a result of the European project “Remembering for the Future”. DVV International initiated the project in 2014 jointly with the European Adult Education Association EAEA on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. The project offered adult education institutions throughout Europe a platform for networking, reflection and joint activities on the topics of remembering, reconciliation and securing peace.
At the heart of the issue are questions like: What does adult education mean in the context of violent conflict? What does adult education have to contribute toward reappraisal and reconciliation? What should training providers consider in conflict-sensitive contexts as well in order to achieve the goals which have been set? What concepts, approaches and methods are available and which of them have been proven in practice? Which actors should be included in order to ensure balanced discussions and fruitful cooperation and ensure access to relevant educational opportunities for different target groups?
The issue aims to contribute to a professional exchange on successful initiatives and tools for constructive processing of a common history.
