The Civil Society Forum “Education 2030: From Commitment to Action” organized by the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE), in the framework of the CONFINTEA VI Mid-Term Review in Suwon 24 October, looked at civil society’s contribution to securing the right to education and lifelong learning for youth and adults.

Women's Link Community Employment Supervisor and former Adult Learner, Kathleen Dowd, travelled to Brussels on 18 September, to attend policy making and advocacy training, and met with other adult education professionals from across Europe.

The trip took place as part of the ERASMUS+ 'Making an Impact at European Level'  project, an EU-funded project organised by AONTAS which supports the professional development of adult education workers.

The High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) under the auspices of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) took place from 10-19 July 2017 at UN Headquarters in New York. The Forum focused on the theme of “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world.”
