In the framework of the virtual seminar 2019 on the “Role and Impact of Adult Education”, the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) and DVV International organised two online discussions in the form of webinars in March. The recordings of these webinars are now available online.
The virtual seminar as well as the webinar was based on issue 85 of DVV International’s journal Adult Education and Development (AED). During the webinars two articles from the current issue were presented by the authors and discussed with invited guests and the participants.
The first webinar dealt with adult education and health. Based on the article How adult education can save your life, author Henrique Lopes, professor of Public Health at the Portuguese Catholic University, had a discussion with Leona M. English, professor of Adult Education at St. Francis Xavier University, Canada, and author of the book “Adult Education and Health”.

The basis was Samual Asnkae’s column The keys to a peaceful and prosperous Africa.
