It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the ASEM LLLL Hub Conference: Lifelong Learning and Resilience in Disaster Management: Asian and European Perspectives on 8-10 November 2016 at Rex Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This upcoming conference is highly relevant because there is a need for new visions and effective models for lifelong learning that has a resilient focus on disaster management. This will also be a good starting point and contribution for a discussion about what is 'burning issues' in relation to education, lifelong learning and disaster management in the coming years. An agenda ASEM LLL Hub will pursue over the next year.
The conference seeks to engage representatives from all 32 European member states and 19 Asian countries under the auspices of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) to discuss and construct concepts and practices for lifelong learning. At the conference researchers, policymakers and practitioners will discuss contemporary possibilities of the need to renew the agenda of lifelong learning, key concepts for policies and practices in Asia and Europe and what role researchers and policy makers should play in creating lifelong learning opportunities for all in Asia and Europe.
We hope you – together with other stakeholders in the field of lifelong learning – will participate in the conference. You can find more information about the programme for the conference in the left column.
Registration form - by invitation only (CLOSED).
Partners and sponsors: The conference is organized by the Danish School of Education, Aarhus University (ASEM LLL Hub); in cooperation with Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Danish Ministry for Children, Education and Gender Equality, Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization - Centre for Lifelong Learning (SEAMEO CELLL) and Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF).
