Mid-Term Review of CONFINTEA VI
The Power of Adult Learning: Vision 2030
25-27 October 2017, Suwon, Republic of Korea
In 2009, representatives of 144 countries met at CONFINTEA VI in Brazil. They agreed that adult learning and education (ALE) can transform the lives of individuals, strengthen societies and promote sustainable development. They committed to improving their ALE policies and practices through the adoption of the landmark Belém Framework for Action.
At this Mid-Term Review (MTR), participants will take stock of progress made since 2009, identify achievements and challenges, and consider trends and policies that will shape the future of ALE. The expected outcome is to build a shared Vision for Adult Learning and Education, in accordance with SDG4 - Education 2030, and prepare for CONFINTEA VII.
- Find out more about the MTR’s goals in the concept note.
- Learn about achievements and challenges since 2009 in the 3rd Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (2016).
This event is co-organized by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning and the cities of Suwon and Osan in the Republic of Korea.
