Lifelong Learning Governance in the Nordic Countries

Remote Event


Lifelong Learning Governance in the Nordic Countries


How is lifelong learning as a whole governed in the Nordic countries? Is the governance based on separate administrative branches or is systemic thinking applied? We compared the practices! Welcome to join!


Time: Friday 22nd January 2021, at 11.00 - 12.30 (UTC+02:00)

Venue: Webinar, Zoom

The event can be watched also through Youtube online streaming. The link will be added to the event site once the streaming begins. 


In order to learn from each other, we compared the structures of steering lifelong learning policy in the Nordic countries. We examined if the practices are based on the measures of different administrative branches or if a systemic approach is applied.

The memorandum Lifelong Learning Governance in the Nordic Countries: A Comparison - Towards a Systemic Approach will be published in an online event, which you are kindly invited to attend.
