LLL Civil Society Forum and LLLWeek Reception - “The role of civil society, education & cultural institutions in promoting EU values and social inclusion”
To kick-start the LLLWeek 2018, we invite to you to discover the Lifelong Learning Platform and our initiatives in an all-around event. This year, the LLLWeek Reception will offer two distinct moments: the LLL Civil Society Forum, as well as the actual reception.

The Lifelong Learning Civil Society Forum will engage stakeholders and civil society organisations active in the fields of education and culture. In a dynamic format “fishbowl”, speakers will address the burning issues of European funding, solid and sustainable partnerships, and they will also assess the role of CSOs in fostering culture and active citizenship.

The speakers will represent the various and multiple stakeholders’ profiles in the fields of education and culture. To truly engage in sustainable and durable partnerships, we need a variety of actors to commit: because of this, we would like to bring both civil society organisations (from education as well as from culture worlds) and the landscape of European institutions in the spotlight.

While the definition of common objectives is important, CSOs demand empowerment and it is crucial that decision-makers remain aware of the opportunities to seize through the engagement of non-governmental actors. As such, the policy talk will finish with a short and dynamic presentation of civil society initiatives focusing on the role of education and culture in fostering a sense of belonging to Europe.

After the round of talks, the Reception will take place: a joyful occasion to round up the year in the LLLP, with insights on the work of the EU institutions in the field of choice. Experts, academics, civil society organisations and MEPs will talk about their past and upcoming activities, share a drink and enjoy a light meal. During the Reception, the award ceremony of the LLLAwards will celebrate outstanding practices in education and lifelong learning. This year’s edition, bearing the official theme ‘Lifelong Learning Culture’, was the most eclectic: who will win?
