Athens Lifelong Learning Institute

Evolving, adapting and improving are the basic blocks of a more inclusive future

The Athens Lifelong Learning Institute is founded upon a firm belief in the transformative potential of education and its capacity to liberate, to empower and to inspire. It is also based on the belief that education – in any of its forms – has the ability to change attitudes, to open minds, to transcend real and imagined boundaries, and to compel us to confront our own preconceptions. Finally, the Athens Lifelong Learning Institute team firmly believes that education is more critically important today than ever.
