Known by all, Learning is extremely important for each individual on earth. It has no bar on time or age restriction; all required is a passion for lifelong Learning. And life-long learning is the key to success.
Lifelong Learning, an ongoing, voluntary and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge, aims at improving a person’s knowledge. The term recognizes that Learning is not restricted to childhood or the classroom but occurs throughout life and in various situations. Lifelong Learning continues on an informal basis, usually after graduation. It promotes social inclusion, active citizenship, personal growth, self-sufficiency, competitiveness and employability.”
Learning cannot be divided into a place and a time for acquiring knowledge and a place for applying acquired knowledge.
Instead, Learning can be perceived as something that occurs continuously from our day-to-day interactions with others and the world around us.
