Summit participants included, among others, leaders of international organizations, educational institutions, representatives of government administrations, businesses, workers’ organizations, and champions of less traditional forms of adult learning.

The Summit provided a platform for dialogue on how lifelong learning can support inclusive economic growth, and help workers adapt to increasingly rapid changes to their workplace and work requirements.

The Summit featured a series of international panel sessions by the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Lifelong Learning Hub; the International Labour Organization (ILO); the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD); and the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL).
