Learning from the Lab 2022 – Realising Sustainable Development Goal 4

By Lifelong Learning Platform LLP


For its 2022 edition, and under the patronage of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, LLP brought its Lifelong Learning Laboratory to Nice, France. 

This year, the main focus was on the need to establish ‘lifelong learning entitlements for the future of Europe‘; and, perhaps more importantly, how this policy aspiration could be achieved? 

The Lab was, therefore, an active exercise in teasing apart avenues and directions for realising a particular policy aspiration; in this case, ‘lifelong learning entitlements for the future of Europe‘. 

The Lab aimed to tease apart the policy implications of SDG 4, i.e. “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

What is needed? 

“Free, publicly-funded, inclusive, equitable and quality lifelong learning opportunities for all”. 

This would ensure that the transition to a sustainable society is rooted in social justice, and that the scope for learning is not the narrow concept of education being a compartment in a particular point of life.
