The Seventh International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VII) in Marrakech (15-17 June 2022) has concluded with the signature of the Marrakech Framework for Action on adult learning and education by 142 Member States of UNESCO.

Over 1000 participants gathered in Morocco to examine adult learning and education and develop a framework for the next decade.

The ETF, on behalf of the European Commission, contributed to the workshop on innovation in skills development and its facilitation through the use of innovative tools.

The CONFINTEA VII was preceded by the Civil Society Forum which made a number of recommendations to improve the Marrakech Framework for Action including strengthening financing for adult learning, literacy policies, support for teachers and educators, and ensuring that learners are engaged in the planning, design and implementation of policies and programmes.
