I had a blast facilitating the discussion around lifelong learning for the post-pandemic era with extraordinary people, experts in their respective fields, investing serious efforts in helping our societies become lifelong learning ones. 

Below is a sneak peek of what was shared but MAKE SURE to watch the whole video. I guarantee you, it is totally worth your time.

"The educational institutions do not have a monopoly over learning and education, they need to see themselves as part of a bigger ecosystem of lifelong learning"
"The modern place of work is always a place of learning"
"A digital workplace is a place where learning is both essential, but also encouraged, and facilitated"
"Partnerships are at the heart of lifelong learning societies"
"Lifelong learning is not just adult learning, early childhood education is as important in this because many of the social and emotional skills that make us successful as adults are the ones we learn very hard early on in our lives - early years are becoming more important in the lifelong society"
"The biggest blockage to lifelong learning is that people do not see their skills"
"How can we build a stronger currency or skills currency that people can accumulate?" 
Moving from learning to work TO learning is the work
"Learning is social, it is NOT transactional"
"Currently, lifelong learning works for the highly-skilled, we must reach the people who need that training"
"The worker of the future is human"
"We won't compete as teachers with the kind of adaptivity of artificial intelligence in sort of making learning more adaptive, but that will make the role of teachers far more important as a teacher of tomorrow."
