Adult Learning Australia (ALA) has declared 2018 to be a Year of Lifelong Learning. This raises many questions about why Lifelong Learning should be a priority. How might policy to promote Lifelong Learning develop? Are there particular outcomes which should be anticipated from a year focused on lifelong learning? How to get the various stakeholders for formal, non-formal and informal learning across various age levels to work together to promote a more coherent and engaged framework for all people to see themselves on a lifelong learning journey?
Three former professors of adult education, and the current chair, from the University of Glasgow were amongst some 100 friends and colleagues who celebrated the 80th birthday of Professor Peter Jarvis, the eminent adult educator, known to all in the field. Professor Lalage Bown, Emeritus Professor of Adult Education at Glasgow eloquently spoke of his contributions especially in the international sphere.

Please find attached the second ESREA newsletter for 2014. The end of the semester is coming but it is a hectic time in ESREA since three out of eleven networks have their research conferences this month. I have seen the programmes and it seems like there will be a lot of interesting discussions concerning policy, global and local issues in adult learning and development as well as transformative learning.
A new journal devoted to exploring radical community work practice will be launched later in the year.
