Parallel event: first meeting of the new EARLALL (European Association of Regional and Local Authorities on Lifelong Learning) work group on Lifelong Learning and the Ageing Population, coordinated by NCK on behalf of the Jämtland Region.
NCK, The Nordic Centre of Heritage Learning - LEM Partner and coordinator of the Working Group ‘Museums and the Ageing Population’- will host the third LEM international conference in Östersund, Sweden on October 11 2012, with the theme ‘Creativity, Lifelong Learning and the Ageing Population’. The conference is taking place in conjunction with the General Assembly of the European Association of Regional and Local Authorities for Lifelong Learning (EARLALL), a group of 23 regional and local authorities aiming to influence European policy and to co-operate in projects in the field of lifelong learning. The conference will therefore bring together museum professionals, stakeholders, regional politicians and policy makers of the EARLALL group, in order to add a new perspective to the subject of older people and museums addressed by the LEM project and contribute to its sustainability.
NCK participates in EARLALL through the Region of Jämtland. With the support of NCK, the Region of Jämtland will propose to introduce a new work group on the ageing population in EARLALL. A formal proposal will be put forward to the board of EARLALL and a decision will be taken during the general assembly in Östersund in October.
