'Life, All-In' project final conference in Antwerp, Belgium, the 17th of November 2016

Closing words, Dr. Koen DePryck, Department of Educational Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Brussel

(excerpt) " 'Life, All-In’ is not just a reductionist selection of learning outcomes prescribed and molded into a taxonomy by the curriculum. ‘Life, All-In’ was not just about bridging formal and non-formal learning. ‘Life, All-In’ was not about teaching strategies and was not even about how life is larger than just formal education, however true that certainly is. ‘Life, All-In' was, and still is, also about inclusion. Life, All In. – Life is there for all of us to enjoy. Life, All aboard... ‘Life, All-In’ really is a project about inclusive democracy, a project about active citizenship... ‘Life, All-In’ until it is about what it has been about before it even started: empowering learning to be the facilitator of ‘all in’, the facilitator of an ‘all aboard society’. "
