Lifelong Learning Platform | LLLP - European Civil Society for Education

The Lifelong Learning General Assembly 2017

The Lifelong Learning General Assembly was held in Tallin on 2 June 2017. The Platform is growing very fast and its importance with it. However, a lot of work is ahead of us to save education & training from austerity measures undertaken at different levels in Europe. We have a big challenge ahead to make the Erasmus+ Programme even greater.

During the General Assembly, the future of the Platform was discussed and, with it, both the new structure of the Steering Committee and the membership situation in the organisation. Following the elections, the LLLP is happy to announce that it has now 3 new Steering Committee members, 2 new members and one membership status change.
