Day One

Day One will focus on a Lifelong Learning Research & Policy review, with each of the Research Networks presenting on key policy priorities in their field of enquiry. This will include drawing on existing research evidence and policy proposals emerging from the work of each RN during the past five years. It will also identify key international policy contexts for informing current and future directions within their fields. It will contextualise discussion around enhancing cooperation and common goal-setting between Asia and Europe, addressing key global challenges like Climate Change, Sustainable Development Goals, Migration and emerging social and economic challenges. It will also, where possible, make links to significant international reports/policies like those emerging from the International Labour Organisation (The Future of Work); UNESCO; OECD, etc.

This will include a set of overall ASEM LLL Hub priorities for 2020-2025, with each Research Network proposing a programme of activity for 2020 and an outline road map for activity in the period 2021-2025.
