Civil society organisations are getting ready to kick-off a global campaign to advance and promote the concept and practice of adult learning and education (ale).  For the rst time, civil society organizations committed to ale have come together to adopt a shared global denition of adult learning and education. Practitioners, learners and civil society representatives from five continents will speak with one voice proclaiming –  we are ale!

The kick-off event will be the start of a five year global campaign to increase the visibility of adult learning and education worldwide, and to empower civil society to speak with one voice to advance the rights of all youth and adults to quality education and lifelong learning.

 “We are a global alliance of the main international actors in the field of Adult Learning and Education. We believe in the fundamental importance of ALE for achieving a healthy planet and a better world. By working together in the promotion of ALE as a global brand, we advocate for greater involvement and investment in ALE by governments, donors, private sector, international organizations and social movements.”


Let´s act together, support us in getting the world to know, understand and hear ale!!
