The objectives of the "Days" were:

  • Dissemination of the ideas of lifelong learning and especially adult education, and awareness raising about its importance widely among all the layers of society;
  • Stimulation and consolidation of lifelong learning providers;
  • Identification of new learning opportunities for all.

During the events in Ijevan, Yerevan and Gyumri various cultural and groups and craftsmen contributed to the awareness raising about the importance of lifelong learning and adult education through giving master classes, while training providers presented their organisations in an open air expo.

"Lifelong learning days in Armenia 2012" was an open event. A wide range of the citizens of Yerevan visited the Lovers' Park where the event was taking place, and, for sure, gained something new and important. This event helped the League make a step forward on the thorny road to the realisation of its mission and reaching the objectives.
