Now available: Final Report of CONFINTEA VI and trilingual version of Belém Framework for Action
The Sixth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VI) was held from 1 to 4 December 2009 in Belém, Brazil, with the participation of over 1,100 delegates, including 55 Ministers and Deputy Ministers from 144 UNESCO Member States. CONFINTEA VI continued a series of global UNESCO meetings on adult education and learning which have been held every 12 years since 1949.
The Conference closed with the adoption of the Belém Framework for Action, which records the commitments of Member States and presents a strategic guide for the global development of adult literacy and adult education within the perspective of lifelong learning. The Belém Framework furthermore includes national and international monitoring and accountability mechanisms to ensure the follow-up of commitments. A Final Report was also produced, containing the proceedings of the conference and a verbatim copy of the keynote speeches.
Both the Final Report (in English and French) and the final revised Belém Framework for Action (trilingual English, French and Spanish version) are now available for download on the UIL and CONFINTEA VI websites.
