Hamburg Declaration on Adult Learning

The Hamburg Declaration on Adult Learning was adopted by the Fifth International Conference on Adult Education held in Hamburg, 14-18 July 1997.

18. Indigenous education and culture. Indigenous peoples and nomadic peoples have the right of access to all levels and forms of education provided by the state. However, they are not to be denied the right to enjoy their own culture, or to use their own languages. Education for indigenous peoples and nomadic peoples should be linguistically and culturally appropriate to their needs and should facilitate access to further education and training.
