Ecological Education in Everyday Life is the last publication in the ALPHA series, produced since 1990 at the UNESCO Institute for Education. In this volume, we continue to be interested in what we call non-formal basic education, which includes a range of literacy practices in vernacular cultures, knowledge transmission practices in communities, and education practices that prove useful to the needs of life. What is new is the ecological component, the strategic objective of lifelong education directed towards sustainable living.

The UNESCO Institute for Education, with its operational base in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, in Germany, and in Europe, has an important role as a UNESCO educational institution: the excellent academic and political relationship between the Institute and all world regions are a treasure “hidden” at the Albert Ballin house in the Feldbrunnenstraße.

In many developing countries, literacy has been seen as the key to 'women's development' resulting in a proliferation of women's literacy programmes run by both Governments and Non-Governmental Organisations. Nepal is one such example of a country where literacy programmes have been used extensively as an entry point for involving women in development activities.

Since adult education documentation and information centres lack sufficient financial and human resources, they cannot adequately fulfil their tasks at a time of increasing demand for adult education and training.
