September 8th was International Literacy Day; Global Report on Adult Learning #50ILD

Apologies for missing International Literacy Day on September 8th. This was the 50th anniversary of the day and information about it is here
As part of the commemoration, UNESCO published the 3rd Global Report On Adult Learning and Education. It is subtitled "The Impact of Adult Learning and Education on health and Well-Being; Employment and the Labour Market; and Social, Civic and Community Life" and chapters discuss the evidence for these links, reporting on a monitoring survey to which 139 countries responded. The report can be downloaded at http://www.unesco.org/new/en/media-services/single-view/news/global_report_on_adult_learning_and_education_calls_on_count/
