European Seminar on Extension Education in Antalya, Turkey, successfully completed

The 21st bi-annual European Seminar on Extension Education (ESEE) in Antalya, Turkey, is successfully completed. Chaired by Prof. Orhan Özçatalbaş, around 50 papers were presented from just under 20 different countries from 4 continents. I have had the opportunity to present a paper on competence development in cooperatives and learned that cooperative organizations are very differently perceived in different regions around the world. We studied large cooperative organizations in a Western market-driven economy in which independent entrepreneurship is a key assett. Various members of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Agricultural Education (JAEE) were present at a board meeting, and I could present the journal at a plenary session of the conference. At the end of the conference it was decided that the 22nd edition of the ESEE will be held in Wageningen, on the same dates as the conference of the Association of International Agricultural Extension and Education, from April 28 to May 1st, 2015. More about this conference will be published in the JAEE and on the website of the journal.
