“Responding to Global Challenges through Lifelong Learning”
A Public Lecture in the framework of the 60th Anniversary of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning
In the international context, lifelong learning has received an unprecedented level of policy attention. But what are the trends and tendencies in international, regional and national strategies for lifelong learning: do we see convergence or divergence? What are the global challenges of lifelong learning and how do they affect the individual learner?
This UIL Public Lecture will offer a platform to hear renowned experts on these issues and to engage in a discussion with policy-makers and practitioners alike.
