THIRD WEEK OF PERMANENT LEARNING AT THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT, BRUSSELS, 2ND TO 6TH DECEMBER 2013

EUCIS-LLL organizes its third week of permanent learning at the European Parliament, Brussels, 2nd to 6th December 2013. This year, the Week will focus specially on the next European election in the spring of 2014. This time EUCIS-LLL will bring its proposals for the European election and more than 10 events in the area of Permanent Learning will be carried out.

From AEPUM we consider that it is a good opportunity for the University Programs for Older Adults given that those who run, manage and make research in that area would be able to contact with other centers and groups that are interested in Permanent Learning in its different aspects (formal, non formal, adult education...). The work during these sessions will be carried out in a creative environment in order to reflect about the modernization of the systems of education and training along life.

Title: "Tourism and European citizenship in the Balearic Islands"

The main goal of this program is to facilitate social relationships and the exchange of knowledge and experiences among the group of older people from different European countries within a university context.

This year, according to the declaration of 2013 as International Year of European citizenship, the edition will be focused on "Tourism and European citizenship in the Balearic Islands". Based on the importance that tourism has had, and still have, in our islands for developing an open-minded and cosmopolitan society, we will show this evolution from a rural to a globalized society. Therefore, we have organized workshops, lectures, tours and visits that will allow our students to discover how Majorcan society has been built.
