LLLP pledges to promote and support more inclusive learning during and after the pandemic, in Europe and beyond. Through a lifelong learning holistic approach and valuing all forms of learning, we hope to create a more inclusive world where education is valued for its intrinsic value.

Lifelong Learning Platform (LLLP)

Brussels, Belgium
Civil society organization
Established : 2005
Education and COVID-19 Response


Support the equitable continuation of learning
During the COVID-19 pandemic
Ensure a full and fair return to education
Following the pandemic
Strengthen learning systems
For the future
Close digital divides and enhance connectivity for education

The COVID-19 pandemic has made all existing inequalities even more apparent. The digital gap will resort to a skills gap, which will inevitably impact social inclusion and prevent equity in our communities. The Lifelong Learning Platform commits to providing a platform for cross-sector and multipartnership cooperation, among civil society and beyond, to bring this issue to the relevant decision-makers. On top of this, LLLP commits to promote equal access to quality education in all of its forms to European political arenas. Ambitious investments are needed to match the ambitious expectations that countries all over the world are placing on education.

Regional Focus

Europe and North America


The Lifelong Learning Platform believes in universal access to learning opportunities and strives to advocate for more inclusive education vis-à-vis policy-makers. As an umbrella organisation of more than 40 European NGOs active in education and training and from all sectors of education and training, LLLP creates a space to exchange innovative practices. LLLP is a unique advocate for fair and inclusive learning during the COVID-19 pandemic: the crisis hit hard, and this is especially true for the most marginalised and disadvantaged learners who found themselves more excluded than ever from the learning systems. By promoting a lifelong learning approach, LLLP seeks to strengthen education systems and their inclusion.
