2nd – 4th March 2017: World Symposium on Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Development, Malta

The UN Sustainable Development Summit held in New York in September 2015, has led to the adoption of a new sustainable development agenda, which builds on the eight Millennium Development Goals.  Even though reaching a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development, and despite the fact that much progress has been made towards increasing access to education at all levels, lifelong learning for sustainable development is not yet as developed as it should be.

The World Symposium on Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Development is being organized on the perceived need to explore and present concrete case studies which illustrate how lifelong learning for sustainable development can be realised.

The Symposium is being jointly organised by the University of Malta, Manchester Metropolitan University (UK), the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany), and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP), in cooperation with various UN bodies, government offices and authorities, universities, enterprises, NGOs and grassroots organisations from across the world. 

Education and sustainability researchers from across the world are warmly invited to attend and present their work at the Symposium: their active inputs will help to reiterate the potential of lifelong learning for sustainable development, and its contribution to the sustainable development agenda.

The World Symposium on Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Development will focus on “strengthening capacity building in lifelong learning for sustainable development” meaning that it will serve the purpose of showcasing experiences from research, field projects and best practice in lifelong learning for sustainable development, which may be useful or implemented across the world.
