As president of I.A.U.T.A. (The International Association of Universities of the Third Age), I would like to welcome all current members of our association as well as future members.
We welcome membership applications from all U3As and from organisations with the same objectives, from federations of U3As, whether at local, regional or national level, and from individuals who wish to involve themselves with international U3A activity. Our main aims and the application process are described below.
The principle objectives of the International Association of Universities of the Third Age (IAUTA) are:
- to federate the Universities of the Third Age (U3As) that now exist all over the world and to include other organisations that may have different names but who subscribe to the same objectives.
- to constitute, with the support of Universities around the world, an international framework of a lifelong educational nature and this will also be concerned with research by, with and for the older generation.
- to develop the exchange of knowledge that the older generation achieves for the benefit of society as a whole through congresses, meetings, workshops, publications and communication through the website and the wider use of the world-wide-web.
