Director-General's Report on the Third International Conference on Adult Education.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The Third International Conference on Adult Education in the context of live-long education was held in Tokyo from July 25 to August 7, 1972. Those attending the Conference examined the following topics: main trends in adult education during the last ten years; adult education as a factor in the democratization of education and in economic, social and cultural development - its role and place in integrated educational systems within the context of life long education; policies for the development of adult education: planning, administration and financing; new methods and techniques; utilization of the major communication media; mobilization and training of personnel required for the expansion of adult education through international co-operation. This document, which contains the recommendations made by the Conference, describes the broad lines and the results of its work and indicates to what extent and by what means these recommendations could be given effect in the Organization's medium- and short-term programs, if the General Conference so decides.
