|LOCATION||Diamniadio (Dakar), Senegal|
|THEME||Revitalizing education towards the 2030 Global Agenda and Africa’s Agenda 2063.|
The ADEA Triennale (formerly Biennale) is one of the most important global events on education and training in Africa, not only for the content of the discussions but also for the quality of the analytical work and high level participants invited. It brings together heads of state, a significant number of African government ministers of education and training (and ministers in charge of other sectors like youth, labour and SMEs), representatives of development cooperation agencies supporting education in Africa and practitioners and researchers. Representatives of civil society, youth, private sector and other stakeholders such as diaspora are also invited.
Its general objective is to provide the opportunity for the various stakeholders to share experiences and to collectively design strategies, modalities, conditions and factors for the operationalization and implementation of the Education Framework for Action under the global and continental frameworks.
The sub-themes are:
- Implementing Education and Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Development;
- Promoting Science, Mathematics and ICT;
- Implementing Education for African Cultural Renaissance and Pan-African Ideals; and
- Building Peace and Global Citizenship through Education.
In preparing for the Triennale, ADEA seeks to ensure the ownership of the process by African countries and education stakeholders through active involvement in the diagnosis, design, implementation, evaluation and review phases.
