LLL Week 2015: Invitation, Information, Involvement PDF Print E-mail



The organisation of LLL Week has proved to be a very successful event since its 1st edition in 2011. It gives the opportunity to members to raise their profile in the European Parliament, strengthen their contacts with MEPs, expand their network and partnership opportunities and get to know better other LLLPlatform members. Events organised during the LLL Week reach a large audience and especially members of the EP, have a wider press coverage and together send a strong political message to support lifelong learning - which is very timely as the new Institutions will really start working in November. This year the LLL Week will focus on the aftermath of the Paris Declaration and citizenship. Lifelong Learning Week 2015 will take place from 30 November to 4 December 2015 with many exiting events taking place in the European Parliament! 

The Lifelong Learning Platform has planned a series of events and working groups to take place during the LLL Week. We strongly encourage you to also organise your own events during the Week as it is clearly a way to get extra visibility to your actions! For that send us more information about the topic and preferred day and we will accommodate you as best as we can. Note that you are to make your own arrangements for your events, of course we will help with the dissemination.
