Skopje, 28.11.2014; Festival of Learning - a campaign that celebrates the culture of learning in Macedonia, has become a tradition. This year, for the 11th time, from 18.11 to 05.12.2014 a series of events in five different cities across the country will be held.
This project is implemented by the Lifelong Learning Centre - Skopje with financial support from DVV International Bonn, Germany.
The main partner of the Lifelong Learning Centre is Public Institution Center for Adult Education, which in 2011 joined in this campaign. Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Macedonia as patron of this campaign, as each year, is supporting the event.
