PR Log (Press Release) – Dec 22, 2009 – The University of the Third
Age (U3A) announces a Worldwide U3A Conference for a truly worldwide
movement. Dates: 8th 9th and 10th of February 2010
Venue: Chitrakoot University, Madhya Pradesh, India

the exception of one in China, all previous 'World Congresses' have
been held in Europe and have been Europe-centric. All that is now

Bangladesh, China, it is becoming clear that Asia and the Pacific rim

The venue - Chitrakoot University

Concerted efforts of the people have propelled India into one of the
technologically advanced nations. However, large parts of rural India

are located in urban areas.

An innovative and high-quality Rural University was therefore
conceived and established at Chitrakoot, located on the bank of the
Holy River Mandakini, away from noisy city life amongst a serene and
beautiful landscape.

Chitrakoot University and Indian Association of Universities of Third
Age, sponsors, welcome you. Full details are available on our website:
