Lifelong learning and intergenerational learning in different cultures and contexts

Intergenerational learning can be seen as part of lifelong learning and was first mostly connected to human capital but has in recent times been more connected to social capital, as the importance of learning for the wellbeing of individuals has been acknowledged. The learning can take place in formal settings, in the workplace or in the informal settings as for example in the family and the community where it is important to consider that the interpretation of lifelong learning and intergenerational learning differ in different cultures and contexts. A model for this will be presented and the reasons for the differences discussed.
