Seize the moment: Financing adult learning and education
With the UN’s Transforming Education Summit just days away, Daniel Baril, chair of the committee responsible for the final declaration of the Seventh International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VII), reflects in his blog post on its important commitment to better financing of adult education and why Member States need to start delivering on it.
At the closing session of the seventh UNESCO International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VII) in June, representatives of UNESCO Member States adopted by acclamation the Marrakech Framework for Action (MFA). Commitments expressed through the MFA will guide the international debate on adult education for the next 12 years and will be among the measures by which national policies will be evaluated. Implementing the MFA is now the task awaiting national governments.
