The President of ILC-BR, Alexandre Kalache, is currently in Australia advancing the ageing agenda of the South Australian Government.

He delivered a public lecture to a packed audience at the University of South Australia's Hawke Centre on November 21st. His presentation called for an education revolution to better accomodate the seismic changes brought about by the Longevity Revolution and the 4th Industrial Revolution. He made a passionate appeal for a paradigm shift away from knowledge-conveying instruction to learning for personal development and the release of creative potential. He stressed the need for learning to learn and firmly establishing Life-long Learning as the organising principle for education in the 21st Century.
