ASPBAE at 50: Daring to Persist. Transforming Lives with Lifelong Learning
ASPBAE’s beginnings date back to the 2nd UNESCO International Conference on Adult Education held in August 1960 in Montreal, Canada. The Montreal Conference called for greater international and regional cooperation, greater exchange, and greater interaction among researchers and providers of adult education from different countries. Spurred by the call for international outreach, a group of adult education professionals from the Asia Pacific met during the Montreal Conference to explore the possibility of creating a network on adult education in the region. Arnold Hely of the University of Adelaide in Australia led these efforts.
