The year 2021 marks the start of the European Education Area as well as of the renewed Digital Education Action Plan and therefore, an opportunity for Europe and Member States to reflect and build capacities to achieve its goals. However, Europe and its Member States face difficulties with citizens’ engagement in policy-making because of a lack of trust, knowledge and/or a lack of social dialogue. This is affecting the quality and efficiency of public services such as education and training.
BRUSSELS, 9 December 2020. A high-level panel debate during the meeting of the Lifelong Learning Interest Group on 1 December launched a discussion on key issues related to the European Education Area. The discussion took place virtually during the Lifelong Learning Week 2020 and brought together more than 60 key stakeholders in the education, learning and training sector.

As part of the GamifyEU project, YEU will present this new campaign called EUCTIONARY! What is it? It’s a series of videos that will explain in an easygoing way, basic concepts related to the European Union and its institutions. We know that it seems quite complicated to make a distinction between the roles and functions of the different institutions. This is why we decided to make this campaign, to bring these concepts closer to the young people.

The European discourse on sustainability has gained the centre of policy arenas and has spilt over all fields, including lifelong learning. Nowadays, it is no longer enough to have an outlook on the future of education, and we rather have to imagine the future of learning with sustainability as a polar star. Such was the spark that lit the debate for the LLLP webinar “Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Societies”, that took place on May 27th.
We are excited to announce that the Lifelong Learning Platform will host an online debate on “Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Societies” on May 27th, at 2pm!
What does it mean for education to be sustainable, and how can we achieve this goal? We believe that sustainability – of learning and of education systems as a whole – shall be the polar star for Europe for the years to come; in particular, for our communities to be sustainable (socially, environmentally and […]
