"Lifelong learning fosters people’s capacity to deal with change and to build the future they want. This is profoundly important given the disruption and uncertainly resulting from the familiar threats and opportunities of demographic change, the climate crisis, the rapid advance of technology and, more recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. The growth of populist politics, the deliberate spread of disinformation and the resulting threat posed to democracy highlight the crucial role of lifelong learning in fostering active, informed citizenship. Lifelong learning also improves employability and entrepreneurship through skills development and creativity, enhances public health and well-being, and builds more cohesive and resilient communities." UNESCO
