Abstract [en]

The aim of this philosophical and historical position paper is to discuss the ways in which Popular Education — folkbildning — as contributed to the social transformation of Sweden through self-directed and collaborative educational practices. One of our premises is that individual transformative learning, fostered by folkbildning, has contributed to a collective transformation of Swedish society since the late 1890s and laid the ground for a modern and coherent society with a high level of trust among its citizens.
