Lifelong Learning

In July 2018 experts in lifelong learning met at the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning to discuss the development of a handbook on lifelong learning policy development and implementation.

It will be a practice-oriented handbook that will provide guidance for policymakers and stakeholders who are in the process of developing and implementing policies for lifelong learning.

It will focus on governance, policy issues, strategic approaches to practical implementation, financial support and monitoring.

The handbook will be developed through consultation with government, NGOs and international organisations.

UNESCO plans to hold an international consultative meeting in Shanghai in October.

The development of the handbook will reflect the complexity of political, social, economic and environmental issues emerging around the globe.

The handbook proposes lifelong learning as a valuable and sustainable approach to address the practical challenges countries are facing.

Publication date is 2019.
