Alongside the role of research and innovation hubs and high-quality education institutions, universities also work to address broader societal, environmental and economic challenges. The latter is commonly referred to as the ¨third mission¨ and it is highly intertwined with the work of University Lifelong Learning.
Lifelong learning offers the flexibility needed to adapt teaching to current community needs so that it can focus on today’s most pressing challenges. Through Lifelong Learning, learners of all ages and from all circumstances have the opportunity to become empowered citizens equipped with the relevant skills and experience required to face global issues such as poverty, social inequalities and environmental degradation.
