The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) has launched a new publication on successful youth and adult literacy programmes entitled Literacy in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts: Effective Approaches to Adult Learning and Education (PDF 4,8 MB).
‘This book presents an inclusive vision of lifelong learning, one that crosses sectors and embraces the entire continuum of learning. It celebrates the learning that can and does occur in areas of work, community, family, and education.’ Arne Carlsen, Director, UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL).
‘This publication gives a voice to marginalized and underprivileged youth in Latin America, thereby giving readers insights into the contexts in which these young people live and how they use education to empower their communities,’ Arne Carlsen, Director, UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL).
‘It is through sharing and exchange that we can enhance the building of sustainable learning cities.’ Arne Carlsen, Director, UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning
‘By equipping young and adult women with literacy, numeracy and basic skills and by providing them with quality learning opportunities, we can support their empowerment and that of families, communities and societies,’ says Arne Carlsen, Director of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL).
‘Higher education through distance education has a big potential to make learning and education more accessible, effective and inclusive for adult learners. The final IDEAL report provides a good knowledge base for increased cooperation and dialogue between stakeholders across the European Union,’ Arne Carlsen, UIL Director.
