International consultative meeting to look at the importance of integrated governance of lifelong learning for sustainable development.

The success of implementing lifelong learning requires new integrated governance models and comprehensive policy frameworks. High-level officials from ministries of education, scholars and representatives of UNESCO/UIL and other UN agencies will come together in Shanghai, China, on 18 and 19 October to review different governance models and exchange international experiences on the governance of lifelong learning in the light of the 2030 Agenda. The meeting will result in a policy brief addressing the purposes, functions and effectiveness of integrated governance in the field of lifelong learning. It will provide directions for the development and implementation of lifelong learning policies in Member States.

The meeting will also discuss a UIL handbook on lifelong learning policy and practice, due to be published in 2019. This publication is intended to guide Member States in integrating lifelong learning in their education and national development policies.

The meeting is organized by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning in cooperation with the National Commission of the People’s Republic of China for UNESCO, East China Normal University and Shanghai Open University.
