Education - diversity and inclusion.

Lifelong learning is the concept of individuals continuing to develop over their entire lifespan.

It may include informal learning, as well as academic and professional development.

It is not confined to immediately practical knowledge and skills.

There are some important things we all benefit from learning - OECD
"Lifelong learning occurs in formal, non-formal and informal settings.
It involves individuals both young and old, with different experiences, motivations and attitudes.

These differences influence not only whether and how people learn, but also their learning objectives.
It is therefore essential to diversify the content and provision of learning, to account for the inherently heterogeneous nature of learning and learners.

However, heterogeneity in learners’ profiles, learning objectives, socio-demographic characteristics, attitudes towards learning and learning goals should be managed so that it does not lead to a strong separation in learning pathways, with important risks to social cohesion and inclusiveness."
