ILO (29 June 2023) - Lifelong learning empowers individuals and societies to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing world, equipping them with relevant knowledge, skills, and perspectives necessary for personal and professional growth. It fosters intellectual curiosity, promotes innovation and productivity, and helps individuals remain relevant and engaged in a rapidly evolving global society.

The ILO strategy on skills and lifelong learning 2030 presents the key steps the ILO - in collaboration with relevant development partners – will undertake in the period 2022-2030 to strengthen its global leadership in skills development and lifelong learning systems.

The strategy details a theory of change consisting of five core short- to medium-term targeted outcomes to enhance skills systems and promote lifelong learning, as well as the five components through which the ILO will channel its work to fuel this change. The targeted outcomes empower societies to meet wider socio-economic impacts dealing with the necessary digital and green transitions, increased resilience, social justice and decent work and contribute to key SDGs (4,5, and 8 in particular).
