Where: Hapur, Uttar Pradesh
Since 1967, International Literacy Day celebrations have taken place annually around the world to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights, and to advance the literacy agenda towards a more literate and sustainable society. “The Conference on Literacy and Skills Development” will explore ways to make effective connections between literacy and technical and vocational skills in policies, practice, systems and governance.
Focusing on youth and adults within the lifelong learning framework, the effective linkages between literacy and skills will be explored.
The renewed focus on integrated approaches is grounded, on the one hand, in persistent literacy and skills challenges, and, on the other, in the new skills demands and impetus generated by the
current context of globalization, digitization and the Global Education 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goal 4. Literacy is a fundamental human right and the foundation for lifelong learning. It is fully essential to social and human development in its ability to transform lives.
