‘Renewing the Agenda for Lifelong Learning’
It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the ASEM forum on Lifelong Learning 2015 – RENEWING THE AGENDA FOR LIFELONG LEARNING on 9-12 March 2015 at Grand Nikko, Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia. The forum is highly relevant because there is an urgent need to discuss this topic. In the contemporary economic crisis we need new visions and effective models for lifelong learning.
The forum seeks to engage representatives from all 32 EU 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 forum 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 forum. You can find more information about the programme for the forum in the left column.
Partners and sponsors: The forum is organized by the Department of Education, Aarhus University (ASEM LLL Hub); in cooperation with Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Danish Ministry of Education, ASEM Education Secretariat under the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture and Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF).
