This year AONTAS is celebrating 50 years as the voice of adult learning, having been established in 1969. To mark this milestone they have published a special edition of the Journal. This launch event will give a opportunity to highlight the valuable Journal contributions which focus on the changes in the field of adult, further and community education in Ireland, across Europe, and globally over the past 50 years.
The Journal launch is hosted by AONTAS and Cork Learning City, a UNESCO award winning initiative that promotes and celebrates learning opportunities for people of all ages, interests and abilities. Projects include the Cork Lifelong Learning Festival, Learning Neighbourhoods, and hosting of the UNESCO International Conference on Learning Cities in 2017.
The agenda will include a panel discussion on the History of the Adult Learner Journal and Key Developments. Authors will also give a short summary of their paper and share what inspired them to write their article.
The launch is taking place on Tuesday, 18th June between 12pm – 2pm in the Council Chambers, Cork City Council, City Hall, Anglesea Street, Cork. T12 T997. Lunch will be provided.
