Workshop to develop Member States’ capacities to shape and implement lifelong learning policies and systems

  • Date: 22 October 2018 to 2 November 2018
  • Where: Shangai (China)

Upcoming Shanghai workshop aims to develop Member States’ capacities to shape and implement lifelong learning policies and systems.

UNESCO Member States are increasingly looking for guidance to develop and implement lifelong learning policies and systems that respond to their national context.

As part of a UIL initiative to strengthen national capacities in this field, country teams from Indonesia, Kenya, Namibia and Viet Nam will come together in Shanghai, China, from 22 October to 2 November 2018, for a two-week workshop co-organized by UIL, the National Commission of the People’s Republic of China for UNESCO, Shanghai Open University and the East China Normal University.

Each team comprises eight delegates, including high-level officials from the ministries of education, policy-makers and leading researchers in the field of lifelong learning. Together, they will work to develop a draft proposal for a country-based policy or strategy to promote and implement lifelong learning-oriented education systems. The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) will provide continuous support subsequent to the meeting to ensure sustainability of the process.

The workshop was conceived in line with an upcoming UIL publication, the Handbook for Lifelong Learning: Policy and Practice, which is currently being developed by the Institute in consultation with international experts. The handbook is due out in spring 2019 and aims to provide guidance to Member States for the development and implementation of lifelong learning policies and strategies.
