Since 2000, the idea of organizing Lifelong Learning Weeks in Slovakia aims to raise awareness on lifelong learning and especially adult learning. LLW Week is held under the auspices of the Minister of Education. Different activities (lectures, workshops, seminars, conferences, discussions, fairs…) across the country aim to encourage everyone to actively participate in education, regardless of age, education, professional experience and focus.
AIVD, as the coordinator of LLW with the LLW partners also take opportunity to present their activities and actively discuss the state of adult education in Slovakia. More than 50 LLW activities took place in 19 cities in Slovakia in 2016. Lifelong Learning Week 2017 will take place in Slovakia from 9 to 15 October 2017.
This year the special focus will be on the topic of Learning Cities. Main conferences will be in Bardejov (11. Oct), Banská Štiavnica (12.Oct), Bratislava (13.Oct).
