The young researchers in adult education participated in 8th Summer School organised by the Culture Education Institute of Zielona Góra University. The crucial elements of the School programme were papers presented by the young but already experienced researchers dealing with a variety of social life topics. The discussions, study visits as well as some new, unexpected surprise events enriched the programme and contributed to strengthening the networking. The majority of presentations were published in Vol. 8 of 'Adult Education Discourses' and abstracted in CEJSH.
