INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IAUTA "U3A'S, CITIZENSHIP AND SOCIAL COHESION"

Logo AIUTA

The University of Alicante organizes of the I.A.U.T.A. International Conference on Thursday 11th - Friday 12th June, 2015  and  brings together the third age universities of all continents.

The theme of this International Conference: "U3A's, Citizenship and Social Cohesion" highlights one of the priorities for U3A’s in the 21st century, namely: the need to delve deeper into ongoing and lifelong training and to focus on senior training as a key aim in the reduction of poverty and social exclusion among the older segment of the population. Recognizing the value that corresponds to older adults’ experience together with the inescapable need for their social presence as active and integrated citizens in their own right appears as an unquestionable priority. In this respect, U3A’s have clearly assumed the role of spreading this message about the need of recognition for older adults, about the fact that their integration is an essential goal, and also about the commitment that this entails to promote seniors’ ongoing training.

It is an ambitious aim which requires the participation of all Universities of the Third Age, gathered in I.A.U.T.A during the International Conference at the University of Alicante. We thus warmly welcome you to our university and hope that our hospitality will help you feel at ease in your work during these days and also that this will lead to a fruitful outcome and to the fulfilment of the objectives proposed.

THIRD WEEK OF PERMANENT LEARNING AT THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT, BRUSSELS, 2ND TO 6TH DECEMBER 2013

EUCIS-LLL organizes its third week of permanent learning at the European Parliament, Brussels, 2nd to 6th December 2013. This year, the Week will focus specially on the next European election in the spring of 2014. This time EUCIS-LLL will bring its proposals for the European election and more than 10 events in the area of Permanent Learning will be carried out.

From AEPUM we consider that it is a good opportunity for the University Programs for Older Adults given that those who run, manage and make research in that area would be able to contact with other centers and groups that are interested in Permanent Learning in its different aspects (formal, non formal, adult education...). The work during these sessions will be carried out in a creative environment in order to reflect about the modernization of the systems of education and training along life.
