It is never too late to learn!

Representatives of the Institute for Youth Development KULT attended the Regional Conference on Lifelong Learning and Non-Formal Adult Education in South East Europe, which was held from 3 until 5 October 2012, in Sarajevo. Apart from the representatives of KULT, the conference was attended by the representatives of the Regional Cooperation Council, dvv international in Bonn, Jordan, Skopje and Sarajevo, EU Delegation to BiH, European Foundation for Professional Education (ETF) in Turin, ERI SEE Belgrade, Centre for Adult Education Skopje, Second Chance Project Serbia, University of Belgrade, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Ministry of Education and the Vocational Education Centre in Podgorica.

The aim of the conference co-organised by dvv international and the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) was to strengthen the social partnership for the development of the adult education sector in SEE and to support the implementation of European and international goals in this area by identifying reasonable points of intervention for regional cooperation.

A conclusion was made according to which the South East Europe has launched significant initiatives in terms of life-long learning, however this still has not been enough. In order to raise awareness of lifelong learning it is necessary to develop the best possible cooperation between the Government and lobby the authorities to recognise lifelong learning as a second chance for all generations.

In order to stress the importance of lifelong learning, in 1999, UNESCO initiated the Lifelong learning week which takes place every year from 24 until 30 September. This initiative has been launched in a number of countries on all continents in order to sensitise the public for lifelong learning, promote the culture of learning and encourage personal motivation.

A conclusion can finally be made that everyone can learn, no matter whether they are young, old, unemployed, adults, executives, lawyers, teachers or parents. It is never too late to learn!
