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.
