Lifelong learning and community education are described in this report as concepts reflective of two rapidly evolving worldwide movements. Although the community is advocated as an important element in lifelong learning, and lifelong learning is seen as an integral part of community education endeavors, it is said that proponents of each movement have not had sufficient exposure to the research of the other group. Accordingly, this paper undertakes the following: (1) to briefly cover the essentials of each concept; (2) to examine common misconceptions; (3) to identify and describe some similarities and differences between the two concepts and movements; (4) to pose a number of questions which should serve to focus attention on critical areas; and (5) to present a proposed foundation for building a research agenda based on the essential features of both concepts.
