The following document is part of a collection of papers that build on the UIL report Embracing a Culture of Lifelong Learning.
This paper by Tonic L. Maruatona holds that, although the Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states endorse lifelong learning as a useful framework for education and sustainable development, the region still lacks some basic foundations, including adequate lifelong learning policies and programmes to bolster the socioeconomic inclusion of marginalized groups. In response to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the COVID-19 crisis, this paper envisions a regional education and training curricula based on inclusive learning policies and infrastructure. In addition, strengthening early childhood education and creating permeable regional and national qualifications frameworks are regarded as essential to the region’s sustainable future.
