Sub-regional CONFINTEA VI Follow-up Meeting in the Caribbean
Eleven Caribbean countries participated in the CONFINTEA VI follow-up meeting for the whole region of Latin America and the Caribbean “From Commitment to Action: Taking the CONFINTEA Agenda Forward”, hosted by Mexico from 25 to 27 May 2011. Following this regional meeting, the UNESCO Kingston and UIL have jointly embarked on preparations for a sub-regional encounter in the Caribbean.
The sub-regional meeting will create a forum to explore, discuss and support the specific concerns in adult literacy and adult education in a lifelong learning perspective in the countries of the Caribbean. A draft concept has been developed; it is considering a particular focus on comprehensive, inclusive and strategic lifelong learning policy approaches, and on increasing participation and quality in adult literacy and adult education.
