Lifelong learning on Euronews


13 February 2012

At the suggestion of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL), two case studies were featured in a short documentary programme on Euronews’ Learning World last Friday, 10 February. Community learning centres in Thailand and the recognition of prior learning in Mauritius were shown as illustrations of good practice to demonstrate how governments can work effectively with local authorities and local people to support the provision of lifelong learning.

The creation of multi-purpose community learning spaces and centres is one of the key commitments in the Belém Framework for Action adopted by the Sixth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VI) to increase participation in the full range of learning activities.
