A year in the life: ALE, GRALE and the Futures of Education
28 June 2021
Preparations are underway for the seventh International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VII), in 2022. Meanwhile, the fifth Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (GRALE) is being finalized, to be published in late spring next year. Add to this UNESCO’s Futures of Education commission, which will report at the end of this year, and the fast-approaching midway point in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and it is clear that this is a moment of potential change in education, and in adult education in particular, which I believe we need to grasp, argues Paul Stanistreet, in the latest UIL blog post.
