With the Lifelong Learning Awards LLLP takes a stand to celebrate creative and inclusive practices. The aim of the Lifelong Learning Award is to give visibility to innovative practices taking place all over Europe in order to attract public attention on lifelong learning as well as to inspire new practices and policies. Because of this, the Lifelong Learning Platform selects each year its annual specific priorities and sets its advocacy strategy on it. The LLLAwards are one of the tools that we use to mainstream our actions.
This year’s edition will focus on LLLPlatform’s theme of the year, “Learning Democracy, Values and Participation”. Because of the large topic, categories and applications were very broad and encompassed lots of cross-sectoral issues.
We received over 60 applications, globally representing 27 countries, but we could only select 3 winners, for the 3 categories.
And the winners are…
