The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning mandate is"...taking a holistic and integrated, inter-sectoral and cross-sectoral approach to lifelong learning as the guiding paradigm for 21st century education".
The NGDIL stands by this mandate encouraging an ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for all individuals, everywhere.
Through the pursuit of new technologies and interoperable educational systems, we strive towards a world where learning is accessible to all and encouraged for the development of the individual and communities, they are a part of.
Learning should be an inclusive activity, at all levels. Whether a single skills course, or an extended degree program. Through our research and development, we will continue to discuss and advance the practical inclusion of lifelong learning throughout our endeavours.
