As we celebrate the 50 years of adult education in Tanzania and turn back to reflect on the success stories of the 1970s-1980s, it becomes clear that there are lessons to learn. Our vision today as vibrantly articulated by His Excellency President Dr John Pombe Joseph Magufuli is to build an industrialised self-reliant economy. Revitalising adult education in this context is therefore essential. As it was precisely put by Mwalimu Nyerere in various speeches, we must educate adults because they are our immediate producers and their impact on our social and economic development is also instant.

Thus, the ICAET50 organising committee invites policy-makers, academicians, researchers, practitioners, government and political leaders, students and other stakeholders to send abstractsof their original papers through the given email address.

The conference will be held from 28thto 30thMay, 2020 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania under the theme “Revitalizing Adult Education for Sustainable Development.
