Why a “Lifelong Learning Week”?

Although the concept of “lifelong learning” (LLL) is widely used, its meaning differs according to whom is using it. In our view, lifelong learning covers education and training across all ages and in all areas of life be it formal, non-formal or informal. It shall enable citizen’s emancipation and full participation in society in its civic, social and economic dimensions. The idea of organising Lifelong Learning Weeks aims to raise awareness of Lifelong Learning (LLL) in Europe and of the need to adopt a holistic and democratic approach at all levels of decision-making, implementation and evaluation. This is necessary if we want the EU to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy as set in the Europe 2020 strategy.
