Why a lifelong learning week?
Lifelong learning covers education and training across all ages and in all areas of life. It enables citizens’ emancipation and full participation in society in its civic, political, social and economic dimensions. A humanistic and holistic approach to learning, from the cradle to the grave, is of continued relevance in today’s world and a viable foundation for the rethinking of education. The Lifelong Learning Week Länk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster. aims to raise awareness of the fact that lifelong learning answers many challenges of modern societies. Fostering a comprehensive approach to education is especially important when it comes to building learning societies, by making sure that our citizens are fully equipped with the competences they need in the 21st century. The paradigm shift to lifelong learning means recognising that learning is taking place in various contexts – be it formal, non-formal or informal. It implies changing the ways we provide and receive education, the ways we assess learning and the ways we work and live together.
Lifelong Learning Week arrangeras av Lifelong Learning Platform, som är en Europeisk paraplyorganisation som samlar över 50 000 utbildningsinstitutioner och organisationer.
