Regional Preparatory Conferences
CONFINTEA VI was preceded by five Regional Preparatory Conferences, whose programmes were designed in relation to the overall thematic focus and adapted to the respective regional contexts.
The Regional Conferences discussed and validated the respective Regional Synthesis Reports (based on national reports on the development and state of adult learning and education), identified the key issues on adult learning and education in the region, and suggested key recommendations for adult learning and education to be taken forward to CONFINTEA VI.
The following Regional Preparatory Conferences took place:
