This great idea, a condition for equity, peace and progress, is consensual. However, reality is far from ideal. Where do the gaps come from? Which are the brakes and the sucess factors; which are the preconditions? Where are the key levers? Who can do what for whom? Which are the great roads for exchanging experiences and reflections in order to invigorate our actions towards a shared objective, in the joyful union of our complementarities?

We have chosen four that will result in four major roundtables:

  1. Ensuring access and achievement conditions for all to basic knowledge from early childhood until the end of life.
  2. Recognizing and developing the role of enterprises in lifelong learning
  3. Promoting health througout the lifespan.
  4. Creating knowledge from multiculturality
