The LLW draw attention to the ubiquity and importance of learning – in all periods of life and in all roles an individual plays in life. All who co-create the project, either as organisers or as participants, contribute to the realisation of the LLW slogan “Slovenia, a learning country”.

Our target groups include the general public, representatives of all generations: participants in learning and education, possible future participants and non-participants, experts, politicians, social partners.

The LLW is also a member of an international movement of festivals of learning.
