21st Century Learning Environments – Where is non-formal and informal learning in the Future of Learning?
June 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This meeting of the EP Interest Group on Lifelong Learning, hosted by MEP Roberta Metsola, will focus on broadening what we understand as a learning environment beyond only the formal sector (e.g. schools, universities) to also include spaces such as adult learning centres, youth and community-based organisations, NGOs, cultural institutions and businesses in order to promote a more modern and inclusive approach to lifelong learning where collaborative partnerships between formal, non-formal and informal learning are encouraged and supported. From this perspective, it will also serve as an opportunity to reflect on the various policy proposals that the European Commission has put forward with a view to creating a European Education Area – the Future of Learning package launched in January and the next follow-up package to be released in May.
