The Lifelong Learning Platform organises an Annual Conferences on transversal and strategic issues in lifelong learning. We invite speakers and participants from various sectors of education and training to see how the same problem is tackled in a university, an association or a training centre, by the parents, the learners, the educators or managers. Social partners and representatives of national, regional and European institutions participate as well, to broaden the debate and disseminate our results to a larger audience.
2019: Learning Democracy, Values and ParticipationFor the 2019 edition, the LLLPlatform gathered education stakeholders in Brussels, Belgium, on 19-20 June to tackle the annual topic of “Learning Democracy, Values and Participation“.
2018: Lifelong Learning Culture
The Annual Conference 2018 took place on 5-6 July 2018 in Vienna, Austria. This year’s topic was “Lifelong Learning Culture: A Partnership for Rethinking Education.” The challenge of the revision of the Key Competences for Lifelong Learning commands us to to include all learning environments through effective validation processes, and a true holistic approach to lifelong learning. The conference saw one hundred participants debate the role of education and culture in building lifelong learning societies: from active citizenship to intercultural dialogue, to validation and to learning environments, the conference opened up pathways for civil society organisations to operate in. The event closed with specific recommendations to improve the European education systems. Relive with us the days in Vienna!
2017: Education in a Digital World
In 2017, the LLLPlatform address its Annual Conference to the topic of “Education in a Digital World“, discussing with education experts the role of technology and digital learning in our society. The challenge of education in a digital world commands us to open education as widely as possible to include all, through flexible pathways and innovative thinking in order to enable all to adapt to yet unknown developments. The two days in Tallinn have brought us vibrant inputs, valuable contributions and have opened our minds on the main topics (and beyond). This is why we are happy to share the report of the conference, including all the interventions from the speakers. Read the report!
