As PRIA approaches its 40th Anniversary in February 2022, we are co-convening conversations on several thematic areas in which PRIA has worked:
On International Literacy Day 2021, the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning calls on the international community to increase funding and political will in order to ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults achieve literacy and numeracy, as enshrined in the Sustainable Development Goals.
Promoting early interest in STEM and role identification for girls, is of urgent interest for many global initiatives (e.g. Organization for Women in Science in the Developing World, 2021). Increasing proportions of girls and women studying and working in STEM would contribute not only to scientific development but to more equitable and sustainable societies, including gendered economic outcomes.
Want to find out more about the training and free membership available through the Generations Working Together (GWT) program encouraging people to find out more about intergenerational working?
In this issue of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning Bulletin you will find information about this year’s International Literacy Day, updates on the fifth International Conference on Learning Cities, multimedia stories about learning cities’ responses to COVID-19, the latest edition of the International Review of Education – Journal of Lifelong Learning, and much more.
