The Institut de coopération pour l'éducation des adultes (ICEA) held the launch of their campaign for Adult Learners’ Week. Known in the language of Molière as la Semaine québécoise des adultes en formation (SQAF) the plans unveiled are impressive. With the three pronged thematic trident, the National table has identified family/education/community, workplace, citizenship and community engagement as its prodding tool for action. Set for March 29th to April 6th the week offers the opportunity to celebrate lifelong learning in many avenues of Quebec life.
This year the dates coincide with the Canadian plans which I hope heralds a closer partnership with the ICEA within La Belle Province. In addition to locally organized activities the National organizing body has planned to hold a video production competition for aspiring media producers on the subject of lifelong learning. Details can be found on the website linked above. Local organizations wishing to participate are asked to consult the website for contact information for your region. A broad variety of organizations are encouraged to get involved. From local libraries, to school, to training centres, to business organizations the call has gone out. Support your community of lifelong learners and get involved. You can call qall for more informatin as well.
