The paper proposes a reflection on adult education and its capacity to answer to the need of innovation that crosscuts our society. In a context of health crisis that is exacerbating the inadequacy of traditional organizational and social structures, the idea of social innovation coincides with that of "transformation", as a change of perspective and a pillar for building the future by a more useful "connection" between citizens, researchers, companies and governments. Considering adult education an enabling factor different types of innovation - technological, organizational or socio-cultural - means to adopt a human-centred perspective for modifying, reproducing and creating structural and socio-cultural conditions, thanks to inclusive and collaborative processes and practices and to improved thinking and action capabilities.
