ASEM Forum on Lifelong Learning 2012: Learning Unlimited
The current economic crisis underscores the international community’s need for new visions and effective models for promoting lifelong learning. Researchers and policy makers alike play a key role in creating lifelong learning opportunities for all in Asia and Europe. Against this backdrop, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Danish Ministry of Children and Education, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of the Republic of Korea, the ASEM Education and Research Hub for Lifelong Learning (ASEM LLL Hub), as well as the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) co-organised the ASEM Forum on Lifelong Learning 2012 in Copenhagen from 28 to 31 May 2012.
Through a dynamic combination of keynotes, plenary sessions, seminars and panel discussions, the Forum successfully: shared knowledge and enhanced understanding of the concept and the role of lifelong learning; exchanged perspectives, good practices in developing and implementing lifelong learning strategies in different ASEM countries; strengthened academic cooperation in LLL research between ASEM universities; and facilitated critical dialogues between researchers and policy makers in order to develop research-based policies and to enhance the implementation of lifelong learning initiatives.
