Reflection for Action: a conference on development education

The first British conference to bring together practitioners and academics from both education and development fields was held in May 1993 at the University of Central Lancashire, England. Organised by Thorn Development Services, with support from Christian Aid, the conference explored what development education is, what its assumptions are, and what happens in other countries. Participants established that the primary need in the field was for greater communication and information-sharing between the various people practising and thinking about development education.
