Lifelong Learning Platform (LLLP) Annual Conference, 5 - 6 July 2018, Vienna

21 March 2018

The Lifelong Learning Platform Annual Conference “Lifelong Learning Culture” will take place on 5-6 July 2018, in Vienna, at the Austrian Economic Chambers (WKO). The event will gather all players in the education and lifelong learning sector: from EU institutions to academics, from international organisations to civil society.

LLLP annual conference 2018

This year’s debate revolves around rethinking education in Europe: from validation and recognition to learning environments, with a holistic approach.

In November 2017, the European Commission launched a new communication for ''Strengthening European Identity through Education and Culture'' ahead of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. Later on, in January 2018, it released a new package for modernising education. This paves the way to a stronger EU-level cooperation in the field of education, training and lifelong learning contributing to a greater social Europe. However, its predominant focus on formal education systems urges LLLP to address the very fundamental issue of current policies lacking to reflect the 21st century learning environments.

The Conference programme includes:

  • Inspirational keynote speeches by high-level personalities including Prof Kim Shinil, former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education of the Republic of Korea, and Prof Rineke Smilde, professor of Lifelong Learning in Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire in Gröningen and at the University of Vienna
  • Thematic talks with Experts
  • Debates in the Cultural Fishbowl
  • Gallery Walk to showcase and share innovative projects and best practices
