Adult Education Strategies for Promoting Sustainable Societal Change in Nigeria



Essentially, it is imperative for any group of people who want to stimulate sustainable societal change in their society to engage in adult education as an integral part of life-long education or learning in the society. Fundamentally, irrespective of people’s educational attainment, there is still an urgent need to continue to learn in life. The guiding philosophy in such continued life-long engagement in life-long education or learning is that there must be obviously a lot of new things for people to learn that will be certainly rewarding in promoting meaningful societal change. This paper basically focused on examining certain strategies which adult education employs in promoting sustainable societal change in Nigeria. Based on the discussions on the identified strategies, such recommendations as the urgent need for regular workshops, seminars and conferences with a focus on goal setting for meaningful societal change in Nigeria as well as raising people’s awareness and public enlightenment on the roles of adult education as a tool for stimulating social action for sustainable societal change in Nigeria among others were highlighted in the paper.
