About

Initiated by EAEA and Lifelong Learning Platform together with a number of MEPs, the Interest Group on Lifelong Learning brings together civil society, MEPs, and other stakeholders to discuss key issues connected to lifelong learning, with strong emphasis on adult learning and education.


We stand for a comprehensive and trans-sectorial lifelong learning approach. Education, we believe, is not only about employment, but is linked to personal development, social inclusion, active citizenship, and much more. The interest group works as a "watchdog" to what the European Union is doing.

The group aims to promote participation and inclusion in lifelong learning in order to reach the headline targets and objectives of the European Education Area and contribute to sustainable and just growth in the European Union.
