• Lifelong learning is available to all adults in Romania by law. However, the reality looks different because only very few adults participate in non-formal adult education programs. The past years have seen an increase in government efforts, promoting community centers and upskilling of adults, which is needed in a country where many adults lack basic skills and digital literacy.
