Since UNESCO has officially announced that Seventh International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VII): ‘Adult learning and education for sustainable development – A transformative agenda’ will be held from 15 to 17 June 2022 in Marrakech, Morocco, ICAE has intensified the preparations for the event. We are taking part in Public online consultation on the preliminary draft CONFINTEA VII Marrakech Framework for Action, mobilised the members to take part and shared with them our analysis and response, as an orientation.
Further on, we will organise Civil Society Forum on 14 June, as a pre-conference of the CONFINTEA VII. In order to prepare it, we decided to initiate Regional preparatory meetings of civil society organisations, to get regional perspective, exchange, discuss and strategise.
