Workshop on “Food crisis: education and training of rural people at stake”
FAO headquarters, Rome, Italy – 4 and 5 June 2009

The Education for Rural People (ERP) initiative of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) organises a workshop which will be held at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy, from 4 to 5 June 2009.

The workshop aims at fostering the partnership between and within countries and agencies that are necessary to strengthen education and training of rural people, sharing successful policies and practices as well as challenges and coming to a joint understanding of key actions to which the diverse stakeholders can contribute.

The workshop gathers national and international policy-makers, managers and experts responsible for education and training for rural people as well as civil society organizations. Other invitees will be from the main strategic partners operating in Africa. They will include representatives from relevant international organizations, the donor community, civil society, the media and researchers.

Advocate and mobilize partnerships for ERP by concentrating on strategic global, regional and international events, and encouraging the same within countries. Support the exchange of good practices and knowledge on Education for rural people.


The partners who will confirm their address and their e-mail at erp@fao.org will receive a DVD containing the ERP Tool Kit

Literacy Inequalities
An International Conference on September 1st - 3rd 2009. Hosted by the Literacy and Development Group, University of East Anglia

Conference aims and objectives
Times of intense change are an opportunity to re-think strategies, to reduce inequalities and re-affirm commitments to social justice. Policy attention to literacy inequalities generally focuses on how to include groups who have been marginalized from mainstream education (for instance, disabled people, minority linguistic and ethnic groups). This conference will examine issues of literacy inclusion and exclusion, but also aims to widen the debate, to include a focus on the geo-politics of differentiated and stratified literacy practices and texts as well as opportunities for transformation: how literacy as a process might help to challenge educational and social inequalities. The conference is particularly timed to support and influence directions in international literacy research and policy during the UN Literacy Decade, following from the University of East Anglia Literacy and Development Group's involvement in the UN Literacy Decade mid-term review of progress.

What are RSS feeds?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a "feed," "web feed," or "channel," contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text.
RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.   (from Wikipedia)

How to use RSS feeds

RSS content can be read using software called a "feed reader" or an "aggregator." The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it finds. Many web browsers (Firefox, Netscape, Safari, etc.) can read and display RSS feeds.   (from Wikipedia)
