From education to employment

Lifelong Learning – We’re all in this Together

Lifelong Learning – We’re all in this Together

This podcast episode on lifelong learning was released fittingly during a time when the @GAN4Skills team in Geneva joined its neighbours, colleagues, and stakeholders around the world in solidarity – on lockdown, in hopes of putting a halt to COVID-19.

The messages on lifelong learning from this podcast that we organised late last year in 2019, resonate so much more during this time of uncertainty.

In this podcast, we brought together partners and member companies – Daniéle Castle, Senior Director Education & Talent, Nicolas Bürerdigitalswitzerland and Amélie Villeneuve-Moore, Head of UBS University, to learn more about how lifelong learning can shield us through tough times.

With both entities based in Switzerland, we learn different perspectives from a financial company and a multi-stakeholder organisation driving digital innovation, on what lifelong learning means for older people, how it is reinforced in the education system, and how Swiss citizens and employees perceive its importance. Although the participants are based in Switzerland, the lessons and approaches are easily transferable and adaptable to various contexts across the world.

During this particular time, when many of are working virtually and dependent on digital tools to keep us connected to our workplace, what truly resonates from this interview is that our ability to leverage our digital skills can help keep our workplaces, relationships with colleagues, and industries afloat. In this podcast, you will have an opportunity to listen and learn from companies and industry leaders on how governments, stakeholders and companies are working together in solidarity to ensure that workforces are skilled. Viewpoints are shared on how technology can play a crucial part in democratizing learning, so it is more accessible, inclusive, and equitable for all.
