On 23-24 September, LLLP members gathered from all corners of Europe to participate in the 2021 General Assembly of the Lifelong Learning Platform. It was the first time that LLLP held a hybrid GA, with participants both in presence in Brussels and online. Most of the membership was present, and the agenda made room for some important debates and consequent decisions, mainly on forward-looking priorities and activities.
The membership contributed to steering LLLP’s activities and helped craft a new pathway for the near future and for the post-COVID. Valuable inputs identified the main challenges for LLLP but also creative and efficient solutions for the months to come.
The GA was also a moment to recognise the importance of the network, and its growth: LLLP is happy to announce that Diesis Network joined the family as associate members!
LLLP elected three new members to the Steering Committee! The membership has confirmed Arja Krauchenberg (EPA) and Tamara Gojkovic (YEU International) and at the same time filled in a vacant seat by electing Elisa Gambardella (SOLIDAR) to the Steering Committee.
The membership also elected a new President: Giuseppina Tucci (OBESSU) was elected for two years, the remainder of her mandate in the Steering Committee. Serving in the Steering Committee for the past four years, Giuseppina has matured a consistent experience of LLLP highest body and has shown great commitment to the LLLP cause.
The second day saw members debate the next years in LLLP’s advocacy. Membership confirmed the transversal priority for the digital transition and this led to the establishment of a new Working Group on the internationalisation of education! Stay tuned to learn more about LLLP priorities: from investment to education, to lifelong learning for all, to digital learning in the context of the pandemic and to inclusive education.
A new year opens up for the LLLPlatform, and we are proud to say that LLLP steps into it with a strong membership, a clear pathway and the usual ambition to shape the future of education in Europe.
