Guidelines for the Organisation of Parallel Workshops

CONFINTEA VI will include workshops organised by NGOS, international organisations, UN agencies and other attending organisations.

The purpose of these workshops is to highlight implementation mechanisms and achievements in adult learning and education (ALE), to facilitate the exchange of best practice, to debate strategies and to inform recommendations that may be embedded in the Conference Final Outcome Document. The workshops should contribute to the concern of CONFINTEA VI to move from rhetoric to action. Participants are expected to engage actively in discussing strategies and measures to take the adult learning and education agenda forward.

The workshops themes are in accordance with the overall objectives of the Conference.

Given the emerging political, cultural, social and economic challenges, as well as the diverse modes and dimensions of ALE, participating organisations, agencies and NGOs are invited to suggest alternative topics for consideration by the Conference Secretariat. As this is a shared international space, it is important that each workshop incorporates experiences from beyond one project or one country.

There will be four rounds of 8 parallel workshops of 90 minutes’ duration, as follows:

Wednesday 2 Dec

Round 1
Round 2

15:30 – 17:00
