The International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) organises the third edition of the Academy of Lifelong Learning Advocacy in Montevideo, Uruguay, from September 24 to October 12, 2007.
IALLA was started in Buskerud, Norway in 2004. The following year IALLA II was organised in Norway as well.
After a break a new edition is offered, aiming at giving emerging leaders in adult learning and social movement activists the opportunity to empower themselves and acquire the skills to advocate for and support adult learning for active citizenship.
The objective is to help generate a broader vision of adult education and lifelong learning within the framework of human rights, creating connections to the most important globalization issues that are currently affecting the world, and support the emergence of a new leadership, for the global network of adult educators, to secure the regeneration of ICAE and the movements for lifelong learning in general.
This space for mutual learning will be key in the preparatory process towards next international adult education conference, CONFINTEA VI, to be held in Brazil in 2009.
The course will be in English and will involve lectures and discussions, case study presentations and analysis, as well as debates. Participants will be trained to work as a global team, by experienced and high-level experts from different regions who will give their perspectives on advocacy issues.
