WORK TO ENABLE EVERYONE TO LEARN AT ANY AGE, whatever their condition, abilities or context:
Learn from each other, from each other, with each other, for each other
Acquire fundamental knowledge from early childhood to the end of life
MAKE ACCESSIBLE ALL THE KNOWLEDGE necessary for the recognition, dignity and development of each individual.
Enable everyone to learn throughout life
INGO partner of UNESCO, the CMA, World Committee for Lifelong Learning serves through its actions one of the fundamental objectives of the specialized agency of the UN: it these include Sustainable Development Goal 4 for driving the Global Education 2030 Agenda.
“To contribute to the maintenance of peace and security by strengthening, through education, science and culture, collaboration between nations, in order to ensure universal respect for justice, law, human rights Man and fundamental freedoms for all, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion”.
For UNESCO, education transforms lives. For the CMA, the term “education” is used in the broad sense. It includes all activities leading to learning: those induced by supervised or unsupervised education and training (formal and non-formal education) and those also induced by everyday, cultural and professional life experiences (informal learning). For both organizations, the sharing of knowledge leads to greater autonomy of thought and action for each individual, the development of a critical sense favoring personal enrichment and citizenship.
The challenge of the CMA: that learning transform everyone's life at each stage, event, evolution of their career, at any age and in any situation. Voluntary approach or not, it is a question of allowing everyone to learn in order to understand, adapt, flourish and have a positive influence on their environment.
