Emphasys Centre is delighted to announce its participation in the Asia and Pacific Regional Conference for CONFINTEA VII 2022 organised by UNESCO Bangkok Office and Field Offices in cooperation with the UNESCO Institue for Lifelong Learning (UIL) on the 22nd of September 2021. The aim of CONFINTEA VII 2022 is to outline effective Adult Learning and Education policies within a lifelong learning perspective and within the framework of the Sustainable Development Golas (SGDs).
The goal of the conference was to share and understand the key common issues, innovations, challenges and forward-looking strategies to renew policies and action in youth and adult learning and education in preparation for COFINTEA VII 2022, which will take place in Morocco.
Emphasys had the opportunity to present the following three Erasmus+ KA2 ADULT projects as part of the session “Innovative Programs for Disadvantaged Targets”:
SeniorsGoDigital aims to offer opportunities for upskilling seniors’ digital competences to become active citizens and socially included in the digital world and ensure their activeness, social presence, e-access, e-participation, and personal development.
ALL4INCUSION aims to develop a tool kit with strategies to improve the participation of members of disadvantaged social groups in adult education through collaborative activities.
DIGITALISEME aims to upgrade digital competences of educators, mentors and other professionals who work with older adults
It is worth mentioning that the event was attended by representatives from the Ministries responsible for ALE/CE/LLL/NFE who drafted a Policy Recommendation document that will be advocated in the UNESCO CONFINTEA VII in Marocco.
