The chapter focuses on the development of the concept from the expansive UNESCO notion of Lifelong Education (LLE) to the more economic oriented one of Lifelong Learning (LLL) as propounded by the OECD and EU. It concludes by arguing for the broadening of the concept of LLL if it is to contribute to the realisation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the idea of education as a public good.
