Lifelong Learning Platform | LLLP - European Civil Society for Education

60 years later, the Europe we want is Just, Sustainable, Democratic and Inclusive

“As we mark the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, we have a momentous opportunity to take stock of how far Europe has come – and how far we still have to go in order to offer a sustainable and prosperous future to everyone in Europe.” On this date, civil society organisations, including the LLLPlatform called on leaders of Europe to show “vision and courage to set Europe on the path to a sustainable future which realises the rights of all people and respects planetary boundaries” in the open letter The Europe we want: Just, Sustainable, Democratic and Inclusive. This must include “strengthening education as a public responsibility that offers lifelong learning for all in order to develop active citizenship, critical thinking, social inclusion, and contribute to building the European identity, vital at this time” say David Lopez and Gina Ebner, respectively President and Secretary General of the LLLP. The Platform also took part in the #SDGAmbassadors Campaign on 24 March.
