As human beings, we never stop learning. Lifelong learning is the continual pursuit of knowledge to build skills, explore new ideas, enhance understanding and enrich life.

Studies have also shown that continuing education, even well beyond the traditional retirement age, can help maintain or buffer our physical and mental well-being.
