Adult Learning, v22 n4-v23 n1 p9-13 Fall 2011-Win 2012
International travel has the potential to expand one's learning horizons exponentially, especially with the abundantly enriching experiences of adult, continuing, and lifelong learning conferences. CONFINTEA VI (The Sixth World International Conference in Adult Education) sponsored by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and organized by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) was held in Belem, Para, Brazil, December 1-4, 2009. UNESCO conducts an International Assembly on Adult Learning every 12 years. CONFINTEA V was held in Hamburg, Germany, July 14-18, 1997. All of the documents developed as background for Assemblies, and those produced by the Assemblies as the Official Documents, are available for viewing and printing: http://www.unesco.org/en/confinteavi/. In this article, the author reflects on UNESCO CONFINTEA VI.
