Sub-regional CONFINTEA VI Follow-up Meeting in the Caribbean

16 May 2012

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.

Once the host country is confirmed, the dates will be fixed.
