Volonteurope is a member of the Lifelong Learning Platform – European Civil Society for Education (LLLP) which brings together 42 European organisations active in the fields of education, training and youth.
Our President Oonagh Aitken, joined their first steering group this summer and will be keeping you updated with news and information from the platform.
Oonagh said: “Supported by the European Parliament, Lifelong Learning Week has become a milestone in the European education agenda and this year’s theme will be ‘Learning Democracy, Values and Participation’.
“With debates on how civil society organisations foster democracy through education I’d love to hear more about the great work of our members so I can feed these examples back during the week.
“With politicians, policy-makers, learners and educators amongst those attending this is a great chance to put Volonteurope’s members at the heart of debates around education’s greatest challenges.”
If you’d like to let us know about your work, or suggest any ideas for the week, please contact Laura Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org
