EUCIS-LLL Policy Debate: Intergenerational learning for inclusive societies

Time:31.03.2015 - 31.03.2015
Location:University Foundation, Rue d’Egmont 11, 1000 Brussels

The population ageing trend will require some considerable societal adaptations regarding work, family life and social protection. Research and practices show that intergenerational learning has a huge potential in Europe and it can be a strong boost for improving learning take up and attainment as well as a sense of solidarity. It is an effective way to address a number of issues such as building active communities, promoting citizenship and addressing inequality. For example, family learning should be integral to educational institutions’ strategies to raise young learners’ attainment and to narrow the gap between the lowest and highest achievers.

The EUCIS-LLL policy debate on "Intergenerational learning for inclusive societies" will aim to share practices and views on how and why the intergenerational dimension should be mainstreamed in lifelong learning strategies. Participants will be able to discuss important issues, such as how to understand intergenerational solidarity and what the needs and obstacles are, how to promote active ageing and how to better share good practices.
