#8 Quality Learning

Integrate and improve different forms of learning, equipping young people for the challenges of an ever-changing life in the 21st century.


Education remains a key for active citizenship, inclusive society and employability. That is why we need to enlarge our vision about education for the 21st century, focusing more on transferable skills, student-centered learning and non-formal education to achieve a truly equal and universal access to quality learning.

Goals:

  • Guarantee universal and equal access to quality education and life-long learning.

  • Ensure that all young people have access to adequately funded non-formal education at all levels, that is recognised and validated.

  • Promote open-mindedness and support the development of interpersonal and intercultural skills.

  • Create and implement more personalised, participative, and cooperative learner-centered methods in every step of the education process.

  • Guarantee that education equips all young people with life skills such as money management and health education including sexual and reproductive health.

  • Incorporate methods within formal and non-formal education settings that enable the learner to develop personal skills including critical and analytical thinking, creativity and learning.

  • Ensure that young people have access to citizenship education to provide them with solid knowledge on political systems, democracy and human rights, attained also through community-based experiences in order to promote active civil participation.
