We are pleased to invite you to the 5th World Forum in Madrid, Spain.
The 5th World Forum meets the messages of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted at the United Nations Summit on 25th September 2015, in areas of critical importance for Lifelong Learning and Education. Its objectives and content are identified accordingly to the UNESCO Education 2030 Agenda, which intends to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030”. This far-reaching event offers a broad range of themes to involve you in debate on lifelong learning and education which can build sustainable development viewed through an integrated approach.
The 5th World Forum is organized jointly by the World Committee for Lifelong Learning in Paris (CMA) and the National University of Distance Education (UNED) in Madrid, Spain, with support of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning in Hamburg (UIL), the Organization of Ibero-American States in Madrid (OEI), the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE), and UNESCO-UNEVOC Center in Hong-Kong.
The round tables will be held by prominent international experts from around the world. In order to encourage sharing of ideas, simultaneous interpretation in French, English and Spanish will be offered for all presentations.
The 5th World Forum will be hosted at the UNED modern campus, inside Ciudad Universitaria, near Moncloa.
We believe that your attendance at our Forum is a wise investment and will pay off for years to come.
We hope you can join us in Madrid in September 2017.
