Title

Adult Educators in Co-operative Development; Agents of Change

Author

Stefanson, Brenda

Description

This work attempts to contribute to our understanding of the role of the external agent and, in particular, the adult educator, in co-operative development. By focusing on the role of adult education in co-operative movements, we can better understand how education contributes to a change in attitude, to building trust and cohesion in groups, and to encouraging people to work together to make improvements in the economic situation and in their communities. The work of Alan Rogers, Paulo Freire and Moses Coady is described.
