On International Literacy Day 2022, the Global Alliance for Literacy (GAL) will come together in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, for its annual general meeting. Progress on advancing literacy in the 29 member countries, the strengthening of digital competencies of literacy educators, and technology-supported literacy teaching and learning of refugees, internally displaced people and migrants will be on the agenda. Speakers will include ministers of education from various countries, and representatives of other GAL member countries, as well as associate members.
As part of the meeting, the publication From radio to artificial intelligence: Review of innovative technology in literacy and education for refugees, migrants and internally displaced persons, authored by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning, and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), will be launched.
The meeting is by invitation only.
Since its launch in 2016, the Global Alliance for Literacy within the Framework of Lifelong Learning has driven international discourse and guided the agenda for literacy provision globally for those who need it most. The Alliance includes 29 countries committed to improving youth and adult literacy. It serves as a platform for its members to collectively discuss progress and challenges, and exchange knowledge and good practices.
