CONFINTEA VI--The UNESCO International Conference on Adult Education in the Context of MDGS, EFA, UNLD, LIFE and DESD
Hinzen, Heribert
Convergence, v40 n3-4 p265-283 2007
This paper looks at the context in which preparations are under way for CONFINTEA VI, the next UNESCO International Conference on Adult Education. The last CONFINTEA was in 1997, and ever since, a series of international conferences and initiatives dealing with adult and continuing, non-formal and out-of-school education, literacy and basic education, have been taking place in parallel, frequently complementing each other. Unfortunately, this attention has not yet attracted a high level of financial support, either nationally or internationally. However, it must be acknowledged that after a serious decline in the support given to education in development generally, the situation seems to be improving. The example of policy-making in the area of adult and lifelong learning by the European Union may also stimulate developments at the international level. (Contains 1 note.)
