Section Two summarizes the recommendations of a Panel of Experts meeting which met in Berlin (West) 11-17 July 1975 to consider the monograph series. The meeting had as its general objectives the examination of the role of training in the promotion of non-formal education and the identification of appropriate training strategies and methodologies. The more immediate purpose of the meeting was that of discussing and guiding the development of the series.
