Panelists, including urban leaders, educators and employers, will discuss the barriers and opportunities of creating a system that helps, not hinders, lifelong learning.

“Lifelong learning was critical long before COVID-19, but helping people develop new skills has become even more urgent,” according to the Aspen Institute.  The @aspenfuturework report outlines strategies for cities to strengthen education and workforce systems to support lifelong learning.
