Welcome to DISCUSS

Lifelong Learning means that learning should take place at all stages of life cycle and, embedded in all life contexts from the school to the workplace, the home and the community. 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. It is the continuous building of skills and knowledge during one's life that occurs through experienced lifetime.

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.
