WE ARE ALE – Global Campaign kick-off


March 22 2021, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm Paris time (UTC+1)

Virtual on Zoom

Civil society is getting ready to kick-off a global campaign for adult learning and education. 

For the first time, civil society created and accepted a common global definition of adult learning and education. Practitioners, learners and civil society representatives from five continents will start speaking in one voice: we are ale! The kick-off event will be the start of a five year global campaign to increase the visibility of adult learning and education worldwide, and to empower civil society to speak with one voice.

 “We are a global alliance of the main international actors in the field of Adult Learning and Education. We believe in the fundamental importance of ALE for achieving a healthy planet and a better world. By working together in the promotion of ALE as a global brand, we advocate for greater involvement and investment in ALE by governments, donors, private sector, international organizations and social movements.”

Join us online, from all around the world!

Let´s act together, support us in getting the world to know, understand and hear ale!!

Stay tuned for further information and contact policy@icae.global if you have any questions.
