Building lifelong learning systems: skills for green and inclusive societies in the digital era

Event ​organised by the ETF and UNESCO with the collaboration of the EBRD and UNICEF

This conference will take place online over the course of a whole week. The theme is system change for lifelong learning: how can education and training systems adapt to the challenges of global change and green and digital futures and guarantee the right to education for all.   

It will bring together actors at all levels in the development of education and training systems: policy-makers, practitioners, employers, international organisations and bilateral and multilateral cooperation partners, experts, researchers, youth representatives, trade unions and civil society organisations.   

The conference has a twin objective:   

  • to create a forum for joint reflection on national and international experiences in transforming education and training systems into lifelong learning systems;  
  • to confirm priorities for future cooperation in the area of human capital development.  

It will draw on the experience of different actors who design, implement, innovate, and benefit from the outcomes of transformative change in education.  

It will take stock of progress in and impediments to system change for lifelong learning.
