Lifelong Learning Platform | LLLP - European Civil Society for Education

Policy debate “Rethinking Education”

David Lopez, Secretary General of EUCIS-LLL, represented the Platform in a policy debate on “Rethinking Education” held on March 26th at the European Parliament. The event was hosted by MEP Katarína Neveďalová (S&D), rapporteur for the CULT Committee on the new Commission’s Communication. David Lopez presented key elements of EUCIS-LLL position on “Rethinking Education”: he pointed out the lack of a genuine lifelong learning approach in the text as no mention is made of non-formal and informal learning, but also the need to emphasise more transversal competences. Besides, he welcomed that the Communication acknowledged the importance of partnerships and reminded the crucial role played by civil society organisations of all levels.
