So what is lifelong learning? Lifelong learning includes formal and informal learning for people of all ages. In the past it was thought learning only happened at school when we were young but now there is a recognition that we are all learners and that we learn in different ways, times and spaces. ‘Every person, at every stage of their life should have lifelong learning opportunities to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to fulfil their aspirations and contribute to their societies.’ UNESCO Education Strategy 2014-2021.
The Wyndham Learning Festival aims to celebrate and encourage lifelong learning for all people in the City of Wyndham.
