LLLWeek2016: Learning to live together

programme_lllweek2016The 6th edition of the Lifelong Learning Week (#LLLWeek16) was held from 10 to 13 October in Brussels, gathering circa 200 policy-makers and educational stakeholders representing civil society organisations, academics and decision-makers, highlighting the key role lifelong learning plays in facing major societal  challenges nowadays. This year and for the first time, the LLLWeek was organised in partnership with the European Youth Forum, merging with the former Youth Education Week, to show our commitment to joining forces with young people and youth organisations.  The 2016 LLLWeek was supported by the Youth Intergroup and the Lifelong Learning Interest Group.

“Collaboration between Civil Society Organisations such as the Lifelong Learning Platform and the European Youth Forum and the European Parliament is crucial in order to boost innovation in policy-making and vitality of the public debate in the education field. Our changing world needs flexible solutions and an inclusive perspective: education is not just a matter of employment, yet it covers active citizenship, human capital development and social inclusion. We must stand for a comprehensive acknowledgement and a strong improvement of all sectors of formal, non-formal and informal learning,” MEP Brando Benifei
