Public Institution „Bosnian Cultural Center of Sarajevo Canton“ has established the Center for Lifelong Learning (CLLL) with the financial and advisory support of the partner organization DVV International – Office for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Establishment of the Center for Lifelong Learning resulted from the need to place adult education into the legal framework, which entails the entry of the Center for Lifelong Learning into the Register of Adult Education Provider in Canton Sarajevo (CS), which would be in accordance with the Law on Adult Education of CS.

Lifelong learning is the best tool to replace the concept of lifelong workplace with the concept of lifelong knowledge, skills and competences. The change of concept is conditional onconstant increase of new knowledge and rapid obsolescence of existing knowledge, but also on the need to adapt existing non-specific knowledge, skills and competences to the requirements of changing workplaces. Lifelong learning becomes much more than an economic issue, since a higher level of education and continuous learning, accessible to all, is an essential prerequisite for reducing inequality and preventing the marginalization of an individual or group.


  • To enable citizens to be more competitive on the labor market through provision of various longer and shorter educational programs
  • To strengthen social inclusion of citizens
  • To develop individual potential of each participant

To reduce the marginalization of vulnerable groups of the society (unemployed persons, elderly, people with disabilities and the disabled, women, young people, etc.), and to improve their economic situation.
