We are Sweden’s leading adult education association. We offer non-formal adult educations in study associations and study circles.
“Folkbildning” is a Swedish democratic concept, which it is based on voluntary participation and a will to learn together. ABF facilitates study circles, lectures, events and other activities that encourages sharing of knowledge without profit.
What to do at ABF:
Start a study circle
Our main tool is the study circle. You can start a study circle in your organisation, in your network or in your neighborhood. The study circle is both simple and democratic. Study circles have been crucial in the fight for democracy in Sweden, and have contributed making our popular adult education movement among the strongest in the world.
The study circle is one way to develop you and/or your association. We are here to help you and your association/organisation develop and gain skills where needed.
