Canadian Adult Learners' Week

"I'm Still Learning"

April 6th-12th is Canadian Adult Learners' Week

What did you learn today?  What would you like to have learned?  What prevented you from learning?


On September 8th, 2000, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), a specialized agency of the UN, officially launched International Adult Learners' Week.  The founders of International Adult Learners' Week understood that the most effective way to underscore the importance of lifelong learning was to give adult learners themselves the chance to express their views, describe their challenges, and document their success stories.

Canada officially joined in the celebration of adult and lifelong learning in 2010.  Across Canada and around the world, adult learning and literacy festivals and events share a common purpose- they are advocacy tools for raising the profile of adult learners and lifelong learning; they mobilize individuals to take advantage of the multitude of learning opportunities open to them; and they serve as a reminder that adult learning can be a powerful instrument for change.

This year, Canadian Adult Learners' Week will be celebrated from April 6th-12th and this year's them is "I'm Still Learning."
