Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is quite a good short report (16 page PDF) outlining the objectives of a lifelong learning programme, and the role played by community learning centres in promoting lifelong learning. It amounts to a large degree to an action plan and business model for these centres. "The aim of such centres would be to create a place where education and social life are closely intertwined with the neighborhood and the wider world, wherein school or any other institution is seen as a learning space of  shared  responsibility  for  professional educators,  other  professionals,  students, parents,  municipalities  and  civil  society organisations (volunteer / youth and solidarity organisations etc).
