Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a recommendation on the development of adult education, adopted by the General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Nairobi, held on 26 November 1976. The objectives and goals of adult education policy should be incorporated in national development plans; they should be defined in relation to the overall objectives of education policy and of social, cultural and economic development policies. Activities designed to promote cultural development and artistic creation should encourage appreciation of existing cultural and artistic values and works and, at the same time, should aim to promote the creation of new values and new works, by releasing the expressive capabilities inherent in each individual or group. Adult education programmes for the improvement of technical or professional qualifications should be organized during working time and, in the case of seasonal work, during the slack season.
