During the CONFINTEA VI Mid-Term Review Conference in Korea next week, the Belém Framework for Action will be under review. It supports “harnessing the power and potential of adult learning and education for a viable future”.
Building on the Hamburg Declaration on Adult Learning and the Agenda for the Future of 1997, the Belém Framework for Action 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. It was adopted during the Sixth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VI), which was held from 1 to 4 December 2009 in Belém, Brazil, with the participation of over 1,100 delegates, including including 55 Ministers and Deputy Ministers from 144 UNESCO Member States.
