"Introduction" (John P.

A list of seminar participants is provided. "Education for the 21st Century: A South Australian Perspective" (G. Spring) examines the following topics: the significance of the Delors report; the purpose, outcomes, and recommendations of the Melbourne conference "Education for the 21st Century in the Asia Pacific Region"; the conference's significance in shaping new policy initiatives and directions in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region; and directions for Australian education in the 21st century. A seminar discussion is provided that focuses on the following themes: globalization, identity, citizenship, and values; education and the economic future of South Australia; new technologies; education and the world of work; adult lifelong learning; universities and research; and teachers and teacher education. Presented next are conclusions and recommendations. The following supporting papers conclude the document: "From Recurrent Education to Lifelong Learning" (R.J.
