First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: Lifelong learning is no longer merely a philosophy. As Norman Longworth shows in this lively and inspiring book, lifelong learning has now become a rapidly developing reality. Learning communities, where business and industry, schools, colleges, universities, professional organizations and local government co-operate and build a dynamic new environment to foster learning, are springing up throughout the world. The future for learning, from cradle to grave, is entering an exciting new phase.
Using many concrete examples of learning communities that are already adapting for the future, Norman Longworth also describes the circumstances under which lifelong learning can help cities, towns and regions to design and implement strategies for change. Packed with case studies and vital insights into the world of learning communities, the book provides a highly readable and thought-provoking glimpse of the future of learning within society and the city.
This books strength lies in its reliance on data and experience from leading-edge learning communities and a deep knowledge of the multi-faceted nature of lifelong learning. The future of learning is already here. Making Lifelong Learning Work distils the best global practices into workable local solutions and will make compelling and indispensable reading for every person, private or professional, in local government, education, industry and the community at large.
