The Lifelong Learning Platform has launched the Lifelong Learning Awards to celebrate creative and inclusive practices during its Lifelong Learning Week 2016.
The aim of the Lifelong Learning Award is to give visibility to innovative practices taking place all over Europe in order to attract public attention on lifelong learning as well as to inspire new practices and policies. The Lifelong Learning Platform (LLL-P) will select each year its annual specific priority that can be linked to the European year if the theme is relevant.
In 2016, the Lifelong Learning Platform will focus on the first priority of its Lifelong Learning Manifesto: “Building inclusive and democratic educational systems”. This priority covers different important issues such as citizenship and global education, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, fighting prejudices and discrimination, educational institutions democratic governance and learner participation, learning mobility for all and the use of arts and culture to tackle social challenges and enhance personal development.
The focus shall be placed on the creativity and inclusiveness of the initiatives more than on the specific topic.
