National Consultation on Adult Education and Women’s Leadership

We are organising National Consultation on Adult Education and Women’s Leadership 2017, in the contemporary context of Digitalization and Skill Building. The consultation will be held on 16th and 17th February 2017, at Indian Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, Delhi.

Nirantar believes that there is an urgent need for a conversation on adult literacy in an environment where loud commitments are being made for Digital India, Skill India as part of development policy and targets.

This National Consultation therefore, is an attempt to bring together various actors working in the field of adult literacy, livelihoods, skill building and digitization to speak to one another in a context of apparent apathy from state and non-state actors alike in providing momentum to the basic right to literacy; and at a time where skills, digitizing and building livelihoods are being prioritized as routes to empowerment as almost substitutes to basic literacy.
