The learning society therefore, is the vision of a society where there are recognized opportunities for learning for every person wherever they are and however old they should be.

DISCUSS brings together educators, researchers, project actors, stakeholders and learning activists, with a view to learn from each other, share good practice and make lifelong learning for all a reality.
