  • facilitating exchanges so as to create synergies and to give rise to concrete actions all over the world;
  • maintaining cultural heterogeneity in order to be able to feed on it;
  • making representatives from all parts of the world participate in the Forum, as witnesses, experts, activity leaders, teaching specialists;
  • integrating the specificities of the host country in our debates;
The whole Forum will focus on three main themes, dealt with in three workshops:
  1. THE LEARNING PERSON : “The learning person at the center of his / her career path”, “Women and children”, “From illiteracy to post-literacy”;
  2. THE ROLE OF THE CORPORATE WORLD : “Responsible firms”, “Working, training oneself abroad”, “ Evolutions in the management of skills”;
  3. LEARNING FOR SOCIAL TRANSFORMATIONS :“Informal learning”, Health and education”, “Territories and globalization”

The “WORLD PANEL” that will close the World Forum will gather the managers of the main international public, social and economic organizations.
