General Information about Education for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.

Education plays a fundamental role in all of our lives and opens paths for reaching our highest potential. It provides us with skills, information, knowledge, values, and techniques that are useful in each stage of our lives, and it also plays a major role in our professional lives and social behaviors. Being educated can help people become more confident and have a better perspective on the world and society. A more educated society benefits from various advantages, such as increased safety against crime, less poverty, women empowerment, and higher participation in voting.

In a modern, industrialized, and highly developed world, education is even more important than it used to be. Since the world is changing at an increasingly rapid pace, a lot of knowledge can become obsolete or inaccurate faster. Hence, it is crucial to be able to learn many things as quickly and efficiently as possible. Nowadays, education is no longer reserved just for the younger generations; adults can – and often do – benefit from it as well. Lifelong learning is an example of ongoing, self-motivated, and voluntary learning that adults can pursue for expanding their knowledge for both personal and professional reasons. Education can make people more competitive and employable while increasing social inclusion and active citizenship.
