The city of Heraklion, Greece, encourages active citizenship in an effort to increase education and lifelong learning in communities. The decision was reached during a three-day workshop that was held in the city from 3 to 6 March 2017 with the aim of developing new ways of implementing lifelong learning.
In today’s digital world, information and communication technologies (ICTs) are constantly shaping the way people live, learn and develop. Used creatively, they can bring sustainable prospects for literacy and numeracy learning.
Local communities have an indispensable role to play in supporting people’s learning and development and in creating societies that are engaged, inclusive and sustainable.
