I’ll be speaking on Friday at the congress of the International Federation of Workers Education Associations (IFWEA) — which was the first international labour institution to have a website, back in 1994. Unfortunately, the website doesn’t seem to have kept up with the times. The IFWEA website is still highlighting on its front page a section on its last conference, back in 2000 — but there’s nothing about this week’s event.
