After two years of the Covid-19 pandemic and in times when war is raging on European soil, the question of values that are – and should be – taught in the education system and in non-formal learning arises more than ever.
This also goes to the heart of the European project: what values should be at the forefront here, and what role can lifelong learning play to strengthen these values? What status should values such as solidarity, democracy, sustainability, and cultural diversity have? How can transformative lifelong learning convey these values? And how can education and learning build resilience and promote skills needed to deal with those who think differently?
The event, organised together with the Lifelong Learning Platform, will take place at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium on 17 May 2022 between 9:45 and 11:45 CEST.
