Virtual Exhibition: The power of lifelong learning

Creating a global culture of lifelong learning will be key to addressing the challenges faced by humanity, from the climate crisis to technological and demographic change, not to mention those posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the inequalities it has exacerbated. Only if everybody – young and old – is able to learn can we solve these global challenges together. A rapidly developing world does not allow for learning to finish at an early age. It requires lifelong learning for all.

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) in 2022, we will launch a virtual exhibition about lifelong learning today and in the future. In this exhibition, we wish to include testimonials about the importance of learning throughout life.

Whether you are a learner, educator, civil society representative, academic or decision-maker – we invite you to submit a statement for our exhibition. Tell us about the importance of lifelong learning in your work, for you personally, and for our common future, and your contribution will be considered as a testimonial for the virtual exhibition.
