In a knowledge-based society, it is essential to take innovative action at different levels of education and to search for better quality educational and activational programmes for adults. The excellent example of an innovative, non-standard solution in the field of activitation of the adult, as well as the entire local community is the Local Knowledge and Education Centres (Polish: Lokalne Oœrodki Wiedzy i Edukacji LOWE) project. It responds to the needs of the community, especially from so-called peripheral and disadvantaged areas. The LOWE project involves the use of schools to activate the local environment and is linked to the creation of an educational offer for adults associated with the primary skills and other key competences that form the basis for lifelong learning. The leader of this project is the Local Government Chamber Foundation. There is implemented the second part of this project entitled LOWE 2 currently. The beneficiary and implementer of the LOWE 2 Project is, among the others, the Primary School of John Paul II in Szklary Dolne in the municipality of Chocianów, where the project will be implemented this year. Jan Wy¿ykowski University is the partner of this project. As employees of the University, we have undertaken to carry out a diagnosis of the educational needs of the local community. This diagnosis was the basis for the creation of an educational offer for adult residents of the municipality. In the article we would like to present the results of the surveys conducted among 130 adult residents of the Chocianów municipality. The research process was conducted with the use of the diagnostic survey method, the survey technique and the self-designed tool in the form of a survey questionnaire, which was made available to the residents of the municipality via the Internet.
